A trip across the Atlantic Ocean couldn’t cool off the Nets.
The Nets put on a shooting show for their British fans, shooting 58.2 percent from the field and 59.3 percent from 3-point range and running away with a 127-110 victory over the Hawks on Thursday in front of a sellout crowd at O2 Arena.

With the win, the Nets improved to 6-1 since the start of 2014 and moved into a tie with the Pistons for seventh in the Eastern Conference playoff race.

The Nets were led by Joe Johnson, who finished with 29 points on 11-for-15 shooting — including scoring 26 points in the first half while hitting 10-of-13 from the field. They finished with 53 field goals — going over 50 in a game for the first time since March 18, 2009, against the Knicks, and also finished with a season-high 38 assists.
Andray Blatche added 20 points and 14 rebounds for the Nets (16-22). Paul Pierce had 18 points, Alan Anderson had 15 and Kevin Garnett had 12.
