The Brooklyn Nets set a Barclays Center scoring mark in their 144-127 victory over the Atlanta Hawks, the club’s most points in a regulation game since 1982.
The Brooklyn Nets turned up the offensive volume Sunday against the Atlanta Hawks, with the team’s highest-scoring game since moving to the borough in 2012 and the franchise’s highest total in a regulation game in more than 36 years.
The Nets ran the Hawks out of the arena in a 144-127 win that turned into a blowout in the second half after threatening to become one much earlier.
The 144 points exceeded the Nets’ previous high total since the move, which had been 143 points in a Jan. 20, 2017, road victory over the New Orleans Pelicans. Their previous highest total at Barclays Center had been 131 points in a win over the Philadelphia 76ers on March 15, 2016.
