The Nets looked great on Saturday against Golden State and their West Coast swing will continue Monday night in Sacramento and then Tuesday night in Phoenix. Then they have a couple games in Los Angeles with two days in-between.
Often times, West Coast trips can be a great time for teams from the East to come together, away from the noise of home. That could be what the Nets are in the middle of now.

But then there’s the issue of someone seemingly always being out of the lineup. Kevin Durant will miss the games against the Kings and Suns with a mild hamstring strain.
By sitting Durant, the Nets may have him back for the two games in Los Angeles. And, of course, long-term health is the priority. It would be nice for the three stars to get more time all on the court together.
DeAndre Jordan missed the last game due to personal reasons but he is expected to re-join the team in Sacramento, which would certainly have him in line to play this one.
The Suns are third in their own division but fourth in the entire Western Conference.
Going back to January 28, Phoenix is 9–1. It wrapped up a home back-to-back sweep by smashing Orlando on Sunday, 109–90.
Chris Paul only had to play 28 minutes and finished 5-of-9 for 12 points, nine assists, six rebounds and just two turnovers. He should be ready to bring it in this one.
Devin Booker went 10-of-16 for 27 points, six assists and no turnovers. On the whole, his turnovers aren’t down much this season and his assists are down but he’s shooting an even higher percentage while coming close to maintaining his scoring.
Booker has gone from perhaps overrated to underrated in his career. He’s really put up terrific numbers with five consecutive seasons of at least 22 points per game.
And in each of those five seasons, he has upped his effective field percentage. At .553 currently, it is higher than it has been in any season of his career.

Free Brooklyn Nets vs Phoenix Suns NBA Prediction: Phoenix.
Phoenix should be favored with Durant out and the Nets on a back-to-back with travel in-between.
The Suns are deeper, at home, and should have an energetic Chris Paul hounding Kyrie Irving in what could be an excellent one-on-one matchup.
And if the Suns get the best of the matchup, it could stretch out a little at the end with Brooklyn setting its sights on Los Angeles. Play the Suns to cover what will likely be a modest number.
