For more on their big win in the Valley, here are the biggest takeaways:

Ricky Rubio and Devin Booker tonight: 49 points, 21 assists, 2 turnovers, 20-30 FG, 6-9 3P and a whopping +77.- Gerald Bourguet (@GeraldBourguet) November 11, 2019
Coming off a spectacular FIBA World Cup campaign with Spain where he led them to the championship and was named MVP, Rubio has had quite the obvious immediate impact on the Suns.
Being easily the best point guard they have had over the past couple of years, he's taken over playmaking duties and eased the pressure on Booker.
Starters shine as Suns outplay Nets on both ends
Led by their backcourt, the Suns' starters played their counterparts off the court. All five starters scored in double figures and combined for 93 points while the Nets' starters only combined for 40.
Kelly Oubre Jr. scored 18 points, while Aron Baynes added 14 points and Dario Saric 12, with the starting unit combining for 12 of the Suns' season-high 19 three-pointers.
Under Monty Williams, the Suns are moving the ball and letting it fly from deep in a free-flowing offence. Tonight, they logged a season-high 37 assists on 52 made field goals, impressively only turning the ball over seven times (a season low).
Much has been made of the Suns' offensive improvement, but with Baynes protecting the rim, with Rubio on the perimeter alongside a much-improved Booker, the Suns boast the league's 11th-best defence and they made the Nets pay in this one, turning 17 Brooklyn turnovers into 32 points.
The hosts shot 52-of-99 (52.5%) from the field and 19-of-42 (45.2%) from beyond the arc while holding the Nets to just 44-of-91 (48.4%) from the field and 8-of-34 (23.5%) from 3-point land.
