Montage Beverly Hills hotel and Brooklyn NetsSaturday night, the Brooklyn Nets went down to the Los Angeles Clippers 110-103, in the second game of a Western Conference back-to-back. Friday, Brooklyn defeated the Phoenix Suns 100-98, courtesy of a Joe Johnson overtime buzzer-beater. All told, the Nets finished their Western swing 1-2, before heading back to New York City’s most populous borough, for a Monday night home matchup with the Portland Trail Blazers.
