Harden, acquired from a 4-team megadeal, tallied 32 points, 12 rebounds, and 14 assists to jumpstart his Nets career in style.
The 2018 MVP became the first player to tally a 30-point triple-double for a team debut.
Durant, meanwhile, shot 61.5% from the floor for a team-high 42 points. The Nets improved to 8-6 with the victory.
