Brooklyn Nets owner Mikhail Prokhorov has taken a much more hands-off approach with the team this season, but he was on hand in London to watch the Nets topple the Atlanta Hawks in a high-scoring affair at the O2 Arena.
Joe Johnson led the team with 29 points as he was 6-of-8 from beyond the arc, while Andray Blatche added 20 points and 14 rebounds to help lead the Nets to a 127-110 victory.
The win moves the team to 16-22 on the season. The Nets are now 3-0 in regular season NBA games in London.
They have won six of seven games and are currently in the playoffs in a lackluster Eastern Conference.
