W2W4: Nets at Jazz
By Mike Mazzeo
The Brooklyn Nets will try to bounce back from their 22-point loss in Denver on Friday when they take on the Utah Jazz on Saturday night. Tipoff is slated for 9 p.m. Here's what we'll be watching for:
D-WILL'S RETURN: Deron Williams will be making his second trip to Utah since he was traded to the Nets. In his return there on Jan. 14, 2012, Williams shot just 3-for-15 and the Nets lost 107-94. In three meetings against the Jazz, Williams is averaging 15.7 points on 31.3 percent shooting.
END OF THE ROAD: The Nets (42-30) are in the midst of an eight-game, 17-day circus road trip, but they'll be able to come home briefly since they don't play again until Wednesday in Cleveland. The Nets are 4-2 on the trip.
11-8: That's Brooklyn's record in the second half of back-to-back games.
