SALT LAKE CITY¬†– Jazz guard Jordan Clarkson collected the loose ball about 75 feet from the basket and calmly dribbled into a deep three over Brooklyn’s Patty Mills.

The Jazz were in New York City for a back to back, this time at Barclays Center against the Brooklyn Nets on Monday, March 21.

With the Jazz leading 18-16, Clarkson tracked down a loose ball in the backcourt and seeing the shot clock running down, tried to fire up a three. Nets guard Patty Mills stripped Clarkson. JC quickly collected, bumped Mills with his right shoulder before calmly swishing a step-back three to give the Jazz a 21-16 lead with 3:30 left in the opening quarter

The reigning sixth-man of the year is averaging 16.1 points, 3.4 rebounds and 2.3 assists per game this season for the Jazz. Over the last five games, Clarkson ups that average to 24.4 points per game and includes a 45-point outburst against the Sacramento Kings on March 12.

The Jazz are leading the the Ben Simmons-less Nets 33-29 early in the second quarter.

The Jazz crushed the Nets on February 4, in Utah 125-102, as Irving played, though Durant missed the game with a knee injury. With the game being in New York, Irving is unavailable to play  due to ongoing COVID protocols in New York City.

The Jazz are playing without forward Bojan Bogdanovic, guard Trent Forrest and center Udoka Azubuike.

The Jazz and Nets  can be heard on The Zone Sports Network. The game is also televised on AT&T SportsNet, NBATV, and FuboTV.
