Donovan Mitchell said the Jazz’s offense was missing opportunities to run because they had to keep taking the ball out of the net after failing to get stops: “Some of them you can say, ‘It’s Kevin Durant,’ and some of them we can fix.” – 10:48 PM Dave Early @DavidEarly

Kevin Durant says he likes when players talk trash to him. Calls it the “true essence of the game is that dialogue that goes on around the court. We all seen it playing in the black tops and in high school gyms.”

Kevin Durant doesn’t think he’s talking more trash or mixing it up with fans more than usual lately. Says it’s basically just part of who he is and maybe we’re just paying closer attention to him now.

“When he’s playing I see like 2, 3, 4 different HOFers in his game. From Iverson, to he might make a Jordan-like layup, or he might run down the court like a Westbrook or a D-Rose….I don’t want to gas him up too much since we playing against him.”

© Provided by HoopsHype Eric Walden @tribjazz

FINAL: Nets 114, Jazz 106. A late 19-4 run gave Utah a smidge of hope, but too little too late. Durant 37p on 15-23 for Brooklyn. Don 30p, but on 9-23 FGs. JC 19p, Conley 18p, 7a, Gobert 11p, but only 4r. Utah now 45-27. Road trip continues in Boston on Wednesday. – 9:51 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

Kevin Durant admits the fans were incredible tonight. – 9:50 PM Andy Larsen @andyblarsen

Nets beat Jazz 114-106.

Durant: 37/8/8.

Mitchell: 30/3/3.

Clarkson: 19p, but on 7-19 FG.

Game where the Jazz could have used Bogdanovic’s efficiency on offense. On defense, though, 121 DRtg, and I’m not sure what answers the Jazz could have had.

Boston on Wednesday. – 9:49 PM Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba

The Jazz fall to the Nets 114-106……Utah falls to 45-27 on the season. Durant was great. 37 on 15-23 shooting along with 9 rebounds and 8 assists. Mitchell had 30 for the Jazz. On to Boston. Game three of the trip – 9:49 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Kevin Durant just told the crowd to get louder and they did. Nets win, 114-106. KD finishes with 37, 8 and 9. Nets have won 6 of their last 7 games. More importantly, they’ve won 3 of the last 4 games Kyrie Irving has not been available in. – 9:49 PM Nick Friedell @NickFriedell

KD’s night:

37 points, 15-for-23 from the field, nine rebounds, eight assists in 38 minutes.

Nice win for the Nets who get Kyrie back for the next couple games — in Memphis and Miami. – 9:49 PM Sarah Todd @NBASarah

Jazz lost this one, 114-106. KD finishes with 37, his fourth 30-plus point performance this month. Donovan Mitchell had 30 points – 9:49 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

Final: Nets beat the Jazz 114-106 behind 37 from KD. Brooklyn has won six of seven. Bruce Brown and Nic Claxton continued to stay hot. Good contributions from Blake Griffin and Patty Mills tonight. Onto Memphis. See you soon Central BBQ. – 9:48 PM Ajayi Browne @ajayibrowne

FINAL: Nets 114, Jazz 106

Kevin Durant (37 PTS, 8 ASTS), Bruce Brown (22 PTS), Nic Claxton (15 PTS) & the Nets just worked one of the best teams in the West. Brooklyn forced 13 turnovers while outscoring the Jazz 54-40 in the paint. They made sure to compile 31 ASTS overall too. – 9:48 PM Andy Larsen @andyblarsen

The KD to Claxton lob will finish it. If you’re going to double KD, you have to at least contain him. Durant has an easy 37/8/8 tonight. – 9:47 PM Eric Walden @tribjazz

Jazz double Durant beyond the arc (including with Rudy), and then an easy drive, kick, lob to Claxton. That might do it. 114-106 with 37.4 to go. – 9:47 PM Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer

KD finds Claxton for a dunk that should seal it. Nets up eight with 37 seconds left. KD is a pair of boards and assists shy of a 40-point triple-double. Claxton has 15 points on 7-for-8 shooting. – 9:46 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Kevin Durant has been toying with the Jazz all quarter long. This time he dribbled around 2 defenders, forced the help then threw the lob over the top to Nic Claxton. The man is playing 2K while the Jazz are actually trying to stop him. – 9:46 PM Eric Walden @tribjazz

15-2 run to get within 110-102. Durant answers back. – 9:42 PM Kristian Winfield @Krisplashed

Kevin Durant just isn’t fair lmao just casually hits a shot over 2 defenders to push the lead back to 10. – 9:42 PM Brian Mahoney @briancmahoney

Quin Snyder talked before the game about the difficulty of doubling Durant because he’s such a willing passer, but he waited too long to try it. Jazz have had some success down the stretch but it’s too late. – 9:40 PM Mike Prada @MikePradaNBA

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 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

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 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
