Brooklyn Nets stars Kevin Durant and James Harden are jelling at an impressive pace — and the history books back that up.

On Monday night, they became the first duo to score 30-plus points in each of their first two games with a franchise as the Nets defeated the Milwaukee Bucks 125-123. Durant had 30 points, 9 rebounds and 6 assists, while Harden put up 34 points, 6 rebounds and 12 assists.

That came on the heels of Harden’s 30-point triple-double performance on Saturday against the visiting Orlando Magic in his Nets debut, a game in which Durant scored 42.

Since Harden’s arrival in Brooklyn, Nets coaches and management have repeatedly said they would lean on the previous chemistry that Harden and Durant had built during their tenure with the Oklahoma City Thunder. After all, Harden hasn’t yet had a single practice session with Brooklyn.
