As the first quarter game clock expired, Kris Dunn dished the ball off to Collins in the corner. The forward drained a 23-foot triple as the buzzer sounded to tie the scoreboard.

At the end of the game’s first 12 minutes, the Jazz and Nets were tied at 28-28. Collins had three points on 1-4 shooting off of the bench. The Wake Forest product added two rebounds in five minutes on the court.

Collins is averaging 14.5 points, 8.6 rebounds, 0.9 assists, 1.0 blocks, and 0.6 steals in 31.0 minutes per contest this season. The former Demon Deacon has played in 22 games with the Jazz.

Utah’s game against Brooklyn is broadcast on KJZZ, Jazz+NBA League PassKSL Sports Zone (97.5 FM), KSLSports.com, and the KSL Sports app.

Nets vs. Jazz

The Jazz have a one-off home game against the Nets on Monday before heading out on a five-game road trip.

Utah is returning from a two-game road trip in Portland and Sacramento for a brief stop at home before heading East.

The Nets meanwhile are in Utah on the final stop of a five-game road trip.

Jazz Shorthanded Against Nets

The Jazz will be shorthanded once again when they face the Nets.

Jordan Clarkson remains out with a hamstring injury, rookie guard Keyonte George is sidelined with a foot injury, while Omer Yurtseven is out due to an illness.

Collins was listed as available in an updated injury report. He was previously listed as questionable due to illness after missing the team’s last four games.

The Jazz will travel to Cleveland, Detroit, Toronto, San Antonio, and New Orleans before returning home on December 30 to face the Miami Heat.

Nets Look To Salvage Road Trip Against Jazz

It’s been a less-than-ideal start to the five-game Western Conference road trip for the Nets.

Brooklyn is 1-3 to open the trip and will look to close the road swing with a victory in Utah.

The Nets have lost in Sacramento, Denver, and Golden State in their last four outings, but earned a win in Phoenix over the Suns on the second stop of their trip.

Brooklyn will be without Ben Simmons (back), Lonnie Walker (hamstring), and Dennis Smith Jr.  (back) against the Jazz.
