HOUSTON (AP) Spencer Dinwiddie didn't seem to be nearly as wowed by his late-game scoring for the Brooklyn Nets as he was by the fact that his team got an overtime victory on a night James Harden had a season-high 58 points.

"The man had 60 and we won," Dinwiddie said, shaking his head and only slightly exaggerating Harden's performance. "That's big-time for a young group."

Dinwiddie scored 25 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter and overtime and the Nets spoiled Harden's night with a 145-142 victory over the Houston Rockets on Wednesday.
