SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz will be looking for their fourth straight win when they face the Brooklyn Nets on Monday night at Barclays Center.

The Jazz are coming off wins over the Chicago Bulls, Los Angeles Clippers, and New York Knicks as they prepare to face the talented Nets team.

Brooklyn has won five of their last six games and has had two days off as they prepare to host the Jazz.

Jazz Look To Continue Streak

After playing .500 basketball for the first two weeks of March, the Jazz have hit their stride with three consecutive wins over the last five days.

Beginning with Wednesday’s win over the Bulls, the Jazz have won three straight games by at least 15 points, and have an average margin of victory of 19.7 points per game.

The Jazz have done it with a shorthanded roster as Donovan Mitchell, Mike Conley, Bojan Bogdanovic, Hassan Whiteside, Danuel House Jr., and Trent Forrest have all missed games during the stretch.

However, newfound depth with Nickeil Alexander-Walker, Juancho Hernangomez, and Jared Butler have given the team a much-needed boost of energy in the victories.

Nets Have Won Five Of Six

Though much of the Nets season has been up and down due to the varying availability of Kyrie Irving, and the sudden, blockbuster trade that sent James Harden to the Philadelphia 76ers in exchange for Ben Simmons, they’ve found themselves on an upswing of late.

The Nets have won five of their last six games, including huge scoring outbursts from Irving and Kevin Durant who have combined for three 50+ point outings during the stretch.

However, Irving will remain unavailable to play at home when the Jazz face the Nets due to ongoing COVID protocols in New York Ciy.

The Jazz crushed the Nets on February 4, in Utah 125-102, as Irving played, though Durant missed the game with a knee injury.

Broadcast

The Jazz and Nets will tip-off at 5:30 pm MT and can be heard on The Zone Sports Network. The game will be televised on AT&T SportsNet, NBATV, and FuboTV.
