Nets guard D'Angelo Russell couldn't be stopped in the fourth quarter against the Kings on Tuesday night.

Down 103–78 entering the game's final 12-minute stretch, the Nets were getting outrebounded and outplayed in almost every corner of the court until Russell outscored the Kings by himself 27-18. Rondae Hollis-Jefferson scored the game's last layup to give the Nets a last-second comeback win.

Russell finished with a career-high 44 points on the night and added 12 assists, four rebounds and four steals in 38 minutes. His scoring outburst included six 3-pointers, the last of which gave him the Nets' franchise record for most in a single season.

Hollis-Jefferson was the team's next leading scorer with 14 points, five rebounds and three assists. The Nets made 17 of 24 shots in the fourth quarter, including 6-of-9 3-pointers.

The Nets improved to 37–36 on the season and will next play the Lakers on Friday at 10:30 p.m. ET.
