Last meeting: March 16, 2019: Jazz 114 d Nets 98 at Vivint Smart Home Arena

Final Thoughts: The Utah Jazz are searching for their fourth straight win, while the Brooklyn Nets are aiming to bounce back from a loss in Phoenix.

The 7-3 Jazz are keeping pace with the Western Conference front-runners. After narrow home wins over East heavyweights the 76ers (106-104) and Bucks (103-100), they comfortably accounted for the Warriors (122-108) on the road yesterday.

Bojan Bogdanovic hit a buzzer-beating corner three to sink Milauwkee among 33 points. Rudy Gobert was the dominant individual against Golden State with 25 points and 14 rebounds.

The 4-5 Nets have been better since the calendar flipped over into November. They recorded impressive upsets of the Rockets (123-116) at home and the Trail Blazers (119-115) away, but were poor in a 138-112 defeat to the Suns.

Kyrie Irving is averaging 30 points, 5.6 rebounds and 7.2 assists per night. But the team is still gelling with the go-to superstar.

The Jazz have won eight of their last 10 against the Nets, including both encounters last season. Utah carved out a 101-91 win in Brooklyn and a 114-98 victory at home.

Rudy Gobert racked up a combined 46 points and a whopping 33 rebounds across the two games.

Irving’s match-up with Mike Conley will be a key factor here. Conley has slotted in nicely to the Jazz’s line-up and will look forward to the challenge of defending Kyrie.

Meanwhile, the Jazz are 5-0 at home, while the Nets are just 1-3 on the road. The Jazz are on a back-to-back but should still have enough in the tank to get the W.

Tip: Margin – Jazz 1-10 @ $2.69
