The Brooklyn Nets open a 4-game road trip Tuesday night when they visit the Phoenix Suns at Talking Stick Resort Arena. Here is how to connect to the game.

For the Brooklyn Nets and Phoenix Suns, Tuesday night’s meeting has a bit of a Broadway feel, even though the matchup is in the desert of Arizona. That’s because for these two teams, it’s literally the same time, next year.

The Nets and Suns last met one year ago today, Nov. 6, 2017, and while some of the cast has changed, the teams are still both very much works in progress.

Neither team has put together consecutive wins this season, but both are coming into Tuesday’s meeting having won their last game.

Brooklyn (4-6)  got away on their road trip the right way, bashing the Philadelphia 76ers at Barclays Center Sunday night, 122-97. The Nets will be looking to improve on their 1-4 road record thus far.

Phoenix (2-7) clipped the Memphis Grizzlies on Sunday night at home, getting a 102-100 decision that snapped a seven-game losing streak and was the Suns’ first win since the season opener.

The Suns, who are 2-3 at home, will be playing the fourth of five consecutive home games when they host the Nets.

Against the 76ers, Brooklyn shook off cold shooting early in the game, forcing 28 turnovers by Philadelphia and catching fire with a 41-point third quarter to turn the game into a rout.

D’Angelo Russell and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored 21 points each for the Nets, with Russell also adding six assists, while Caris LeVert kept Brooklyn in the game early with 18 of his 20 points in the first half. LeVert also finished with four steals.

Jarrett Allen went for 15 points, 10 rebounds and two blocks and Spencer Dinwiddie had 12 points and eight assists.

Phoenix got the game-winner against the Grizzlies Sunday when Devin Booker drained a 17-footer with 1.7 seconds remaining as the Suns came back from a 12-point deficit in the final 8:22. Booker had 14 of his team-high 25 points in the fourth quarter while adding seven assists/

Trevor Ariza chipped in 16 points and nine rebounds for the Suns while Deandre Ayton had six assists, three steals and two blocks.

The Nets trail the all-time series to Phoenix, going 41-45 since entering the NBA in 1976. The Suns own the longest winning streak in the series, a seven-game run from Dec. 3, 1993, to Nov. 27, 1996.

Phoenix scored 161 points in a double-overtime shootout with the New Jersey Nets at Continental Airlines Arena in East Rutherford on Dec. 7, 2006, winning 161-157.

In regulation, the largest total is 133, scored by the Nets in a 133-129 win at Phoenix on Nov. 23, 1988, and matched by the Suns in a 133-106 win at home on Dec. 8, 1994.

The biggest blowout in the series also belongs to Phoenix, a 129-90 win in at home on Nov. 27, 1999.

Devin Harris is the single-game scoring leader in the series, putting up 47 points to lead the Nets to a 117-109 win at Phoenix on Nov. 30, 2008.

D’Angelo Russell leads Brooklyn players in single-game scoring with 33 points in the Nets’ 122-114 loss to the Suns at Barclays Center on Oct. 31, 2017.

Steve Nash scored 42 for the Suns in that 2006 double-overtime game, with the top total in regulation by a Phoenix player was Tom Chambers with 39 points in a 116-114 loss to New Jersey in Phoenix on Nov. 23, 1990.

Since the Nets moved to Brooklyn in 2012, they have dominated the series, going 9-3. The Nets have won the last three games played at Talking Stick Resort Arena and five of the last six in the series overall.
