The Utah Jazz welcomes the Brooklyn Nets at Vivint Smart Home Arena this Friday night. Both teams are on opposite sides of the corner, the Utah Jazz will be going for their third consecutive win, while the Nets will try to snap out a four-game losing streak.
The Jazz comes into this game on a two-game winning streak beating Minnesota 126-125 and LA 126-103 so they better keep this momentum if they want to beat the Nets. Utah is averaging 117.8 points per game and is led by Lauri Markkanen with 24.8 points per game, followed by Jordan Clarkson with 21.0 points. On the defensive side of the court, they are giving up 116.6 points per game which are not bad but will this be enough for this game?
The Nets are going through a rough moment without their star Kevin Durant, losing four of their last five games. The absence of Durant puts the team on the shoulders of the second-best scorer Kyrie Irving, who scored 30 points in their previous game against Phoenix. However, Irving is questionable for this match. Defensively speaking, Brooklyn is playing well this season by giving up 110 points per game. They will need to keep up this effort to win this game.
The Utah Jazz are playing well offensively, and even more at home where they are scoring more than 120 points per game. They are one of the best rebounding teams in the league, which will give them more scoring chances. On the other hand, the Nets usually play well defensively but the absence of Durant in the line-up is notorious. Additionally, they may play without Kyrie Irving making this a very tough game for them.
