NBA Matchup: Utah Jazz vs Brooklyn Nets
Date: 21st March 2022
Time: 7:30 pm ET
Two teams fighting to climb the ranks in their conference, the Utah Jazz will be taking on the Brooklyn Nets. The Utah Jazz is the 4th seed in the West with 45 wins and looking to overtake the Warriors. Whereas the Brooklyn Nets let themselves slip in the extremely competitive East and are looking to get that guaranteed playoffs spot before the season draws to a close.
Brooklyn and Utah have played each other just once this season. That game was played out on 5th February 2022.
Who won the game the last time they played?
Just like most of the games this season, the Brooklyn Nets played just 1 star against the Jazz. It was the only player in the NBA with a part-time job, Kyrie Irving. Kevin Durant was still injured at the time and James Harden was smack dab in the middle of the drama. And even Kyrie Irving had an off night.
Kyrie Irving scored 15 points in 30 minutes on 6 of 20 shooting from the field. It seemed like he was playing for the Jazz on that night. Cam Thomas off the bench put on a spectacle and showed Irving how he should’ve been playing. Thomas scored 30 points in 31 minutes. It was not enough for Brooklyn to win. 6 double-digit performances from the Utah Jazz got the better of the Nets and gave them the 1 game lead in the season series.
Utah led in every statistical category and won with a final score of 125-102. The Jazz even led by 34 points in the game which shows the pure domination on the night.
Utah Jazz vs Brooklyn Nets match prediction
Utah has not played a healthy Brooklyn Nets team so far this season. Brooklyn has won 5 out of their last 6 games and has been on fire since KD made his return. Unfortunately for them, Utah has been amazing before the all-star break. The Jazz has won 15 out of their last 20 games and is on a little 3 game win streak.
The game will be at Brooklyn meaning Kyrie won’t be suiting up. Kevin Durant will be on the court to take care of his missing stars. Utah is missing a couple of key contributors since the last time they played, but as long as Mitchell and Rudy are on the court, they have a huge chance to win.
