KD seems fresher than almost every other star in the league now. That injury may have been a blessing in disguise for him – 9:30 PM Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba

Global Tech News Daily

Basically, once Durant got dropped, he decided the game was over. It’s been all Nets since. 63-36 Brooklyn since that moment. Nets lead the Jazz 108-87….on to Boston – 9:30 PM Eric Walden @tribjazz

Durant’s got 35, Nets lead by 21 … Jazz are cooked. On to Boston. 6:08 to play. – 9:30 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

Global Tech News Daily

KD with another terrific game — he’s got 32 points in 32 minutes and is shooting 13-for-19 from the field.

He has been in a great rhythm since he came back from the MCL injury earlier this month. – 9:29 PM Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney

Nets have blown this one open. Durant up to 35 points and it’s 108-87 midway through the fourth. – 9:29 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Timeout, Jazz: That will do it. Kevin Durant just hit a shot to put the Nets up 21, then grilled everyone court side who would look in his direction. That makes 35 points, 6 assists and 5 rebounds for KD.

Nets up, 108-87, with 6:08 to go in the 4th. – 9:29 PM Sarah Todd @NBASarah

That looked like a “we run this mf” from KD and he is correct. – 9:29 PM Chris Herring @Herring_NBA

Durant is good. – 9:29 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Kevin Durant is riling up the fans after his latest 3. He is in some zone tonight. Even different than his usual one. – 9:28 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Kevin Durant’s about the check back into this game. – 9:25 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Critical minutes to start this quarter. We know Nash likes to rest KD to begin 2nd and 4th. – 9:19 PM Eric Walden @tribjazz

End 3Q: Nets 91, Jazz 75. Utah outscored 38-24, as KD goes off and drops 15 of his 30 in the period. Jazz commit 6 turnovers in the quarter. – 9:19 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Kevin Durant just held his arm up as if to say my bad & hit his head as if he knew he made a mistake. The Jazz sent a double at Durant & he tried to thread the needle with a rifle of a pass to Bruce Brown. That pass was one of few blemishes on KD’s night: 27 PTS, 6 AST, 12/18 FG – 9:18 PM Andy Larsen @andyblarsen

Nets up 91-75; Jazz allowed BKN to score 38 in the quarter. Some of it was KD goodness, so Jazz tried to double… went okay, but not great. Gay makes some sense as a primary defender on KD, I think. – 9:18 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

End of the third quarter: Nets lead the Jazz 91-75. Kevin Durant put on a show in that quarter. Patty Mills just missed a halfcourt heave that would have sent Barclays cray cray. Nic Claxton with 13 and five. – 9:18 PM Andy Larsen @andyblarsen

Jared Butler comes in and immediately makes 2 big shots, including one over KD. Forrest/NAW/Butler a big point to decide over the next 3 weeks from Snyder. – 9:15 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Someone on Utah’s bench just said something to KD. He looked at them, nodded, went up the floor and hit a pull-up jumper over Rudy Gay. Then he went back down the floor, jawed at the Jazz bench some more, went back up the floor and drew a 3 shot foul on Rudy Gay. – 9:14 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Kevin Durant had some things to say to the Jazz bench. Wonder if he asked them where they ate last night. – 9:14 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Kevin Durant just hit a hop-skip past half court after draining an early 3 against the Jazz. Durant has 25 points, 6 assists and 4 rebounds, and has led the Nets to a 16-point lead over the Jazz in the waning minutes of the 3rd quarter. – 9:10 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Kevin Durant with back-to-back 3s and is PUMPED UP on the court. He’s got 25 points on 11-for-17 shooting. Nets lead 84-68 with 2:33 left in the third. – 9:10 PM Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba

Brooklyn has played a terrific game offensively thus far. Moving the ball, guys other than Durant making shots. Big key is they stayed even with the Jazz in the non Durant minutes. – 9:01 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Timeout, Quin Snyder: The Nets have taken a 73-62 lead over the Utah Jazz here at the 7:04 mark of the 3rd quarter. They have outcored the Jazz, 20-11, in the 3rd, have 21 assists on 29 FGM, have taken care of the ball (6 TOs) and have gotten scoring help from other than KD. – 9:00 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

From @BKN_NETSPR: With 17 points tonight, Kevin Durant has now scored 25,193 career points, moving past Jerry West (25,192 points) into 22nd place on the NBA’s all-time scoring list.

Next up: Reggie Miller (25,279 points). – 8:59 PM David Locke @DLocke09

Last time the Utah Jazz played Kevin Durant was Feb of 2019 so this is really the first extended time Royce O’Neale has ever guarded him. Ingles and Crowder had the assignment then. – 8:47 PM Eric Walden @tribjazz

HALFTIME: Nets 53, Jazz 51. Brooklyn closes the 2Q on an 8-0 run to surge ahead. Utah needs to clean up the turnovers a bit (8), but at least didn’t surrender many points off of them (5). Don 14p, Conley 12, Clarkson 10 for the Jazz. Durant 15, Brown 11, Griffin 9 for the Nets. – 8:38 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

HALF: Nets 53, Jazz 51

Kevin Durant (15 PTS), Bruce Brown (11 PTS) & the Nets are in a close one. The Jazz are shooting it at 48% which isn’t far off of what the Nets are shooting it at. The second half is going to come down to who defends better in this high scoring contest. – 8:37 PM Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA

Playing Claxton, Brown, and Edwards alongside KD and hypothetical Kyrie may leave you light on shooting, but that is a nice defensive lineup. It’s hard to disrupt the Utah blender like they just did to end that first half. – 8:37 PM Ryan Miller @millerjryan

The Nets closed the half on a 10-2 run after Kevin Durant got dropped by Conley’s pump fake. Brooklyn found a new gear after that.

Nets lead 53-51 at the break. – 8:37 PM Bill Herenda @billherenda

“He can make any play but he always makes the right play” – @TimCapstraw quoting Quin Snyder on Kevin Durant #TakeNote #BrooklynNets @WFAN660 @BKNetsRadio @ChrisCarrino #NBA @Utah Jazz @BrooklynNets – 8:37 PM Andy Larsen @andyblarsen

Nets up 53-51 on the Jazz at the half. Really even in a bunch of categories. Jazz, like essentially everyone else, have no answer for KD offensively. – 8:35 PM Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba

The Nets lead the Jazz 53-51 after closing the second quarter on an 8-0 run. KD woke up after Conley’s cross…..15 for him. 14 for Mitchell. – 8:35 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Halftime: Nets lead the Jazz 53-51. Kevin Durant has 15 on 7-for-10 shooting. Good job by the Nets doing more with less depth wise. All hands on deck for Steve Nash. – 8:35 PM Ben Anderson @BensHoops

Mike Conley absolutely washed Kevin Durant out of the picture here.

#TakeNote – 8:33 PM Sarah Todd @NBASarah

Mike Conley just dropped KD with a cross over👀

KD called a timeout.

What happens next? – 8:28 PM Ben Anderson @BensHoops

Mike Conley just EMBARRASSED Kevin Durant with that crossover.

Turned him into the tin man. – 8:28 PM Eric Walden @tribjazz

Mike Conley sent Kevin Durant flying with a simple pump-fake before burying the shot. Jazz lead 49-43 with 3:28 left 1H. – 8:27 PM Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba

Ok….KD gonna start hoopin after that – 8:26 PM Andy Larsen @andyblarsen

Did….. Mike Conley just drop KD with a crossover? – 8:26 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

With less than a second left on the shot clock, Kevin Durant catches an inbounds pass in the corner, turns and pulls up over Royce O’Neale. All net. – 8:23 PM Jonathan Feigen @Jonathan_Feigen

Eric Gordon, with his first 3-pointer in a week, moves past Kevin Durant into the top 25 in career 3-pointers. Durant might hit one tonight, too. – 8:18 PM Eric Walden @tribjazz

End 1Q: Jazz 28, Nets 25. Nice back-and-forth action. 22 of Utah’s points came from Mitchell/Conley/Clarkson. Durant with 8p and Brown 7 for Brooklyn. – 8:05 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

End of 1st QTR: Nets 25, Jazz 28

Kevin Durant (8 PTS), Bruce Brown (7 PTS) & the Nets aren’t securing any boards. Brooklyn is getting outrebounded 8-12 and five of those twelve rebounds are offensive boards. This explains why Utah has taken 5 more shots than the Nets. – 8:04 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

End of the first quarter: Jazz lead the Nets 28-25. Early eight points for Kevin Durant. Nets start just 1-for-4 from 3. Jazz are 3-for-10. Pretty even match. – 8:04 PM Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba

2:53 remaining in the first quarter. The Jazz lead the Nets 21-16….the Jazz have been getting stops so far, even on Kevin Durant possessions. But that’s just Durant missing shots that are good for him. He’s gonna eventually start making those – 7:58 PM Rob Perez @WorldWideWob

Kevin Durant brings out the “tiny” again, this time for Royce O’Neale. – 7:48 PM

Andy Larsen @andyblarsen

Royce O’Neale guarding KD… KD backs him down, shoots over the top, sinks it, and KD hits him with the “too tiny” pinched fingers. – 7:46 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Pregame reading, today’s story on Cam Thomas’ education from Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. He’s probably getting some run tonight:… – 7:38 PM David Locke @DLocke09

Being in arenas is so great. Incredible pre-game tonight. Long conversation with Kyle Korver. Nash and Snyder pressers. Watched Kevin Durant’s unreal warmup. Said hi to Ally Love (Peloton people understand) talked with NBA people. Now let’s have a great time on the radio. – 7:19 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Nets starters vs. Utah: Dragic, Curry, Durant, Brown and Claxton.

This is Brooklyn’s 40th starting lineup of the season.

Nic Claxton will make his 19th start of the season and his first since the Nets’ last game against Utah (2/4/22). – 7:12 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

The Nets’ Starters vs. the Jazz:

🐲Goran Dragic

💦Seth Curry

🔒Bruce Brown

💲Kevin Durant

📈Nic Claxton – 7:01 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

Steve Nash admits when Kevin Durant was out the Nets suffered. – 5:51 PM Steve Bulpett @SteveBHoop

Jayson Tatum chosen NBA Eastern Conference Player of the Week.

Interesting to note Jaylen Brown was among the nominees, with Kevin Durant, Darius Garland, Tyler Herro and Pascal Siakam.

Wonder how often two players from the same team get close in the same week. Says something. – 3:47 PM Brian Lewis @NYPost_Lewis

Kevin Durant sees big title window if #Nets‘ season goes up in smoke… via @nypostsports teammate @MarkWSanchez – 1:56 PM David Locke @DLocke09

Since Kevin Durant returned on 3/13 the Nets offense is soaring

122.5 offensive rating

53.3% FG

42% 3pt shooting

+11 differential – 1:31 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

LaMarcus Aldridge nicknamed him Instant Offense. He’s debated with Kevin Durant on who was the better young scorer. The way the Nets talked about Cam Thomas this year, he sounds like a Space Jam character. But there’s more him than that. Today’s story:… – 10:06 AM Justin Kubatko @jkubatko

Jaren Jackson Jr. has recorded 24 games with multiple 3PM and multiple blocks this season.

Only four players in NBA history have recorded more such games in a season:

30 – Brook Lopez, 2018-19

28 – Rasheed Wallace, 2005-06

28 – Kevin Durant, 2017-18

27 – Danny Granger, 2008-09 – 9:21 AM

Kyle Goon: After the first timeout, the Cavaliers PA did graphic and called for applause for LeBron James moving up the all-time scoring list to No. 2. He scored 23,119 of his regular season points as a Cavalier across 849 games in 11 seasons. -via Twitter @kylegoon / March 21, 2022 Dan Woike: Cavs salute LeBron James for moving to No. 2 on the all-time scoring list -via Twitter @DanWoikeSports / March 21, 2022 Saturday in Washington, it was a thundering dunk, a driving layup, a handful of threes and, finally, a cutting layup that pushed James up the NBA’s all-time scoring leaderboard to No. 2, trailing only Kareem Abdul-Jabbar. The historic basket came midway into the second quarter of the Lakers’ 127-119 loss. Stanley Johnson found James on a back-door cut into the paint for a right-handed layup for his 36,930th career point, moving him past Karl Malone for second on the NBA’s career scoring list. “Just to be part of this league the many years I’ve been a part of it and being linked to some of the greatest who’ve ever played this game and guys I’ve ever watched or studied or read about or aspired to be like … I’m just always lost for words for it,” James said. -via Los Angeles Times / March 20, 2022
