Ben Anderson @BensHoops
Everything looks good when shots go in, and the Nets have been particularly hapless lately, but the Jazz haven’t had this type of energy in a long time. – 9:54 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
Joe Ingles said today that Patty Mills was at his house last night, and as they were discussing Mills’ year, he mentioned he already had a career-high for 3s made in a season. Most he’d made in a full season before: 161. This season, came into tonight at 165. He’s added 3 more. – 9:54 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
James Harden is not on the Nets bench tonight from what I saw but was in the arena pregame. Overreact to that any way you please. – 9:53 PM

Nets having chemistry problems? Could use a friendly face?

Keith Smith @KeithSmithNBA
It’s not out of play that the Nets could slip to 7 or 8 and into the Play-In in the East.
That sets up a situation where they wouldn’t have Kyrie Irving available for a must-win game(s).
That’s a laughable premise as recently as a month or so ago. Now, it could happen. Unreal. – 9:49 PM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Jazz reigning triple-double king Carlos Boozer is at Vivint tonight. – 9:47 PM
David Hardisty @clutchfans
The Toronto Raptors are playing great basketball. They have won 5 in a row, including two wins over the Heat and a win over the Bulls. If the Nets lose tonight (and they’re down by 19), Toronto will be just a half-game behind them to overtake the 6th seed. – 9:45 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Nash said a couple times today that the Nets have had just one bad half on this whole trip — the 2nd half in Sacramento. Whether you agree with that assessment or not — this first half is right up there. The Nets aren’t making a lot of effort plays and the defense has been bad. – 9:43 PM

Brooklyn is down 47-27 and looking abysmal. The #Nets are shooting .297. – 9:42 PM
Bill Simmons @BillSimmons
First 4-game winning streak for the Celts. Best they’ve looked all season.
At 12-41 Orlando + at depleted Brooklyn next 2.
The East is in semi-shambles.
My dad just said “I wouldn’t trade Schroeder or Richardson right now.”
(All kinds of stuff happening! CELTS! WE’RE BACK!) – 9:42 PM
Sarah Todd @NBASarah
Like…You really do forget how much different the Jazz are when their best players are gone. Just the infusion of Donovan is so enormous. – 9:42 PM

Hassan Whiteside was actually very solid in that stretch. 4p, 3r, 1b, some hustle, some active engagement. – 9:40 PM
Adam Wexler @AdamJWexler
With that late 1st half 3ptFG, Eric Gordon is now tied for 25th on the all-time 3-point FG made (1,722) list. He’s tied with Kevin Durant. Also tied with Durant for 10th most among active players. #Rockets9:39 PM

Eric Gordon is 3 of 3 on 3s, moving into the top 25 in NBA history in 3-pointers. He’s tied with Kevin Durant, who might hit some more, too. Probably not tonight. – 9:37 PM
Tim MacMahon @espn_macmahon
Kyrie Irving, the Nets’ lone star tonight, went 1-of-6 in the first quarter vs. Utah.
On a somewhat related note, I noticed somebody removed this mask from the John Stockton statue outside the arena. pic.twitter.com/Ns7N5BLOr39:35 PM

Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Cam Thomas is a bucket. The Nets should play him more – 9:34 PM
Eric Walden @tribjazz
End 1Q: Jazz 33, Nets 24. High-energy start from Don & Co. He had 5p/3a early. Bogey had 6p/3r. Dok 4p/5r. Jazz went 13-20 FGs, 4-9 FTs. Brooklyn got 7p from Blake Griffin, but shot 10-29 overall. – 9:34 PM
Ryan Miller @millerjryan
Utah up 33-24 after the 1st quarter. Bogdanovic has 6, Mitchell has 5 points and 3 assists, and Jared Butler has 5 off the bench. – 9:34 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
End of the first quarter: Jazz lead the Nets 33-24. Blake Griffin and Cam Thomas have seven points apiece. Jazz have come out with a lot of energy. Nets have been a bit sloppy. – 9:34 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Jazz up 33-24 after 1Q. This is a rough Nets team as is, but the Jazz are doing a very good job of staying in front and making them take contested jumpers. – 9:33 PM

James Johnson has already taken 8 shots. The Nets are just 4-for-19 from the field. Kyrie is 1-for-6. Jazz getting any kind of look they want. Brooklyn has the look of a team that is ready to get home. The problem is they still have the rest of this game — and another in Denver. – 9:23 PM

Steve Nash on his talks with James Harden amid trade report: “We’re in lockstep, so I don’t think he pays attention in that way where it affects him. And he certainly knows my tone is like ‘its me and you, buddy. We’ve got to figure this out and keep going, keep pushing.’ ” #Nets7:54 PM

Just one mans opinion but I would trade Simmons for wings who can shoot defend and score because I think maxey is fine at point guard. Trading for harden kills his growth – 7:41 PM

Asked about the losing streak impacting the Nets’ thinking at the trade deadline, Steve Nash said he doesn’t think the organization is reactive to where just because they’re losing they’ll make a deal. Said it’s about building something and the big picture. – 7:36 PM
Nick Friedell @NickFriedell
Nash says the decision to hold Harden out tonight is precautionary — they want to give him another couple days to make sure his hamstring is feeling better. Nash does not believe Harden will need an MRI — and he’s hopeful he’ll play Sunday in Denver. – 7:35 PM
Alex Schiffer @Alex__Schiffer
Steve Nash said James Harden experienced a strength deficit with his hamstring and it was bothering him against Sacramento. Doesn’t commit to him playing Sunday. – 7:34 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
With the news that Danuel House Jr. isn’t playing tonight, that means @Utah Jazz fans won’t see him again in in uniform on his current 10-day deal which expires Sunday.
Also, he’s already signed his league-max second traditional 10-day contract. – 7:32 PM
Ryan Miller @millerjryan
Danuel House technically has cleared COVID protocols, but is still symptomatic so he remains out. – 7:25 PM

Danuel House has cleared NBA health and safety protocol (cycle threshold over 30) but is still symptomatic so the Jazz are keeping him out. – 7:25 PM

Anthony Puccio @APOOCH
Things have been rocky since James Harden got to Brooklyn. Kyrie part-time, injuries, COVID, and his own inconsistency this season.
He’s frustrated and he’s a free agent this summer. The Big 3 has hardly played together… Nets would be foolish if they didn’t field calls. – 6:18 PM
Dave Early @DavidEarly
“Yeah, whether or not it’s the season now or later, the way I look at it is [Harden’s] already said I want to play and finish my career in Brooklyn: He’s actually said that.”
-Joe Tsai via @Brian Lewis in Sep.
How much better could #sixers feel he’d wanna stay w/ them? – 6:15 PM
John Hollinger @johnhollinger
Technically, Philadelphia *has to* put in extra money into a Simmons-Harden deal, about $2.1 million. Thybulle and Maxey each make just enough to do it, but also works with Korkmaz, or Reed + Joe, or lots of other combinations.

Joel Embiid is averaging more points (33.5) than minutes (32.3) in 2022. Imagine him playing with Harden.

What do we think Brooklyn prioritizes in a Simmons + for Harden deal?
Maxey obviously has the most upside. Curry probably does the most for their specific roster needs. Thybulle and Simmons could survive offensively with KD and Kyrie. Picks open up the most flexibility. – 5:09 PM

Joe Ingles had plenty to say this morning about his torn ACL and all that entails (story to come from @Andy Larsen). In the meantime, I covered everything Joe had to say in his revealing final interview *before* the injury. sltrib.com/sports/jazz/20…4:17 PM

Finding some support for Rudy Gobert on defense has to be the Jazz’s main priority. #TheVoidNBA

I’m so exhausted today, I’m really just hoping and praying that Kyrie doesn’t try to smudge Vivint or something. I just can’t deal with anything like that today 😂 – 4:02 PM

Joe Harris ‘confident’ he’ll be back for #Nets with injury frustration mounting, but nothing guaranteed nypost.com/2022/02/04/joe… via @nypostsports3:44 PM

Feel like there’s at least as much to talk about regarding teams not involved in this trade as there is clips-Blazers. Why didn’t Utah for example get more aggressive? – 3:36 PM

New for @NYDailyNews/@NYDNSports: With the Feb. 10 NBA Trade Deadline approaching, Joe Harris’ ankle uncertainty puts the Nets in a bind. They’re going to have to make a decision on him sooner than later. #Nets
