The Brooklyn Nets look to complete a season sweep of the Phoenix Suns when they host the Westerrn Conference foe Sunday at Barclays Center.

The Brooklyn Nets hope to continue their recent dominance of the Phoenix Suns when the teams meet Sunday at Barclays Center for a 6 p.m. tip.

The Nets have won six of the last seven games in the series overall and look to complete their third season sweep in the last four seasons.

Both teams are trying to avoid starting new losing streaks after having consecutive-victory string snapped.

More from Nothin' But Nets

Brooklyn lost Friday at home to the Indiana Pacers 112-104 to end their seven-game winning streak, while the Suns’ 149-146 road loss to the Washington Wizards in triple overtime Saturday snapped a streak of four consecutive wins.

Prior to those streaks, the Nets had lost eight straight games, while Phoenix dropped 10 in a row.

On Friday, rookie Rodions Kurucs gave Brooklyn (15-19) its last lead of the game with 3:08 to play, but the Pacers came back to close the game on a 14-3 run to secure the victory.

Kurucs led the Nets with a career-high 24 points. Ed Davis grabbed 10 rebounds, Spencer Dinwiddie finished with 15 points and nine assists and D’Angelo Russell also handed out nine dimes.

In Washington Saturday night, the Suns (8-25) cost themselves a chance to win in regulation when T.J. Warren fouled Jeff Green with 3.4 seconds remaining. Green’s free throws tied the game and Devin Booker‘s long runner was off target.

Booker then missed the second of two free throws with 6.8 seconds left in the first overtime to leave the game tied at 122-122.

Booker missed a short floater off the glass on a drive with one second remaining in the second overtime before Bradley Beal finally gave the Wizards the lead for good with a drive and layup with 40 seconds left in the third OT.

Booker scored 33 points and had 14 assists for Phoenix. Warren added 28 points and two blocks, Deandre Ayton tossed in 26 points with 17 rebounds and Kelly Oubre Jr. scored 20 points. De’Anthony Melton logged 10 points and three steals.

The Nets are 42-45 against Phoenix since joining the NBA for the 1976-77 season. The Suns own the longest winning streak between the teams, taking seven straight from Dec. 3, 1993, to Nov. 27, 1996.

The Nets’ longest run of five straight victories bridged the New Jersey and Brooklyn eras from Jan. 13, 2012, to March 17, 2014.

The highest-scoring game in the series for both teams was a 161-157 double-overtime win by Phoenix at East Rutherford on Dec. 7, 2006. In regulation play, the Nets had a 133-129 win at Phoenix on Nov. 23, 1988, while the Suns posted a 133-106 win at Phoenix on Dec. 8, 1994.

The Suns have the largest margin of victory in a game, a 129-90 victory at Phoenix on Nov. 27, 1999. The Nets’ largest victory was 110-72 at East Rutherford on March 27, 2006.

Phoenix had a 122-114 win at Barclays Center on Oct. 31, 2017, and — oddly enough — have posted all three of their wins in the Brooklyn era by eight points, most recently the Halloween 2017 victory.

As for individual performances, Russell’s 33 points on Halloween 2017 is the highest mark in the series. Booker’s 32 for Phoenix in the same game is the Suns’ high.
