The New Jersey Nets (3-6) will play seven of their next 10 games on the road and will kick things off Monday night in Los Angeles against the Clippers (1-9).
Even though the Nets only went 1-2 last week, including two losses at home, they are coming off one of their most complete games of the season in losing to the Orlando Magic 91-90. They will look to continue their solid play against the Clippers and follow that Wednesday night in Utah to take on the Jazz, then travel back to California to face the Kings and wrap up their West Coast swing Saturday night in Denver.
The Jazz are leading the Northwest division with a record of 7-3, but the other three teams on the slate for this week are a combined 9-19. New Jersey is 1-3 on the road and were 4-37 as the visiting team last season.
Following a tough week from center Brook Lopez, the Nets leading scorer is now Devin Harris with 18.9 points per game while rookie Derrick Favors is the team's leading rebounder with 6.7 per game despite only playing a shade over 20 minutes per game.
