In perhaps their best week of the season, the Nets had 3 great wins out west to give them their first winning record on a west coast trip since November of 1997. They were shorthanded and just plain short, but the Nets outplayed their bigger opponents on both ends of the floor. It started with a solid win in Golden State Wednesday. Then on Friday, the Nets had their best win of the season, playing with just two big men in Los Angeles. Not letting themselves suffer a letdown, they carried their momentum and hot shooting with them to Utah Saturday night, and cruised home with 3 straight wins.
