Brooklyn Nets @ Utah Jazz Tips


The Brooklyn Nets take on the Utah Jazz in an NBA inter-conference regular season game on Wednesday, March 24. Brooklyn are currently second in the Eastern Conference, while Utah are top of the Western Conference, which makes this game particularly special as it features two of the outstanding teams in the NBA this season.

This will be the second time these two teams have played each other in 2021, with Brooklyn winning their first encounter back in January by an impressive 130-96 scoreline. Based off both teams’ recent form and that previous encounter, I’m backing Brooklyn to defeat Utah again on Wednesday, this time in a much tighter game, and by a winning margin of less than 10 points.

  • Brooklyn 2nd in Eastern Conference
  • Brooklyn 29-14 this season
  • Utah Top of Western Conference
  • Utah 31-11 this season

Head to Head


The Brooklyn Nets and the Utah Jazz have played each other a total of 93 times, with Utah currently leading their head-to-head by 61 wins to 32. This head-to-head encompasses the changes in both franchises, as the Utah Jazz were previously known as the New Orleans Jazz, while the Brooklyn Nets were previously the New Jersey Nets and prior to that the New York Nets.

As these two teams compete in different conferences, they meet less often than if they shared the same conference or division. Over the past three seasons including this one, they have played each other just five times, with Utah leading 4-1. However (and significantly), in their most recent encounter in January of this year, the Brooklyn Nets triumphed 130-96.

Brooklyn Nets Form


The Brooklyn Nets are currently second in the Eastern Conference, behind only the Philadelphia 76ers. It’s the same scenario in the EC Central Division, with both the third-placed New York Knicks and the fourth-placed Boston Celtics having strong seasons, and are also in the running for playoff places come the end of the regular-season.

Brooklyn have one of the best records in the NBA this season, with 29 wins against 14 defeats for a 0.674 win percentage. The Nets are both strong at home (17-6) and on the road (12-8) and over their last 10 games their record in excellent 8-2. On Monday (March 22) Brooklyn defeated the Washington Wizards 113-106, with Kyrie Irving scoring 28 points and grabbing seven high rebounds. That was the Nets’ 15th win in their last 17 games.

Utah Jazz Form


The Utah Jazz are top of the Western Conference, a position they have held all season. Trailing them are the Phoenix Suns, Los Angeles Lakers and LA Clippers, all of whom have had great seasons and are strong contenders for playoff spots.

Utah have the best record in the NBA this season, with 31 wins against 11 defeats for a 0.738 win percentage. That record would be even more impressive had they not suffered a recent loss of form that has seen them lose five of their last 10 games.

The Jazz have however won their last two games, most recently on Tuesday (March 23) when they defeated the Chicago Bulls comprehensively 120-95. Outstanding for Utah that night was Donovan Mitchell who scored 30 points scored and six assists.

Verdict

This truly is an elite level match-up featuring arguably the best two teams in the NBA right now. Both teams have enjoyed a lot of success this season, but while Brooklyn have been almost unstoppable since mid February, the previously invincible Jazz have suffered five defeats in the past three weeks.

Back in January the Brooklyn Nets handed Utah by far their worst defeat of the season, hammering them 130-96. Based off both team’s recent form and that result, I have to back Brooklyn to beat Utah again on Wednesday, this time by a closer scoreline of 10 points or less, in a high-scoring match that will feature around 230 points.
