The Brooklyn Nets host the LA Clippers Saturday at Barclays Center seeking to sweep a back-to-back for the 1st time this year. Here’s how to watch.

The Brooklyn Nets will look to accomplish a first this season, winning both ends of a back-to-back, when they host the LA Clippers Saturday night at Barclays Center.

This is Brooklyn’s fourth back-to-back set this season, with two splits and a double-loss thus far. The Nets got the opener Friday night with a 115-104 over the Washington Wizards in D.C.

The Clippers, meanwhile, last played on Thursday at home before making the cross-country flight to New York.

Spencer Dinwiddie scored 25 points with eight assists and three steals Friday night while D’Angelo Russell added 23 points and six dimes in the win over the Wizards.

Jarrett Allen returned from a two-game absence with an illness to score 16 points with 12 rebounds and two blocks for the Nets (7-9).

The Clippers (9-5) held on Thursday night for their third straight win, a 116-111 decision over the San Antonio Spurs. Lou Williams came off the bench to score 23 points for LA.

Tobias Harris finished with 18 points, eight rebounds and five assists and Montrezl Harrell went for 14 points and five dimes, also in a reserve role, as the Clipper bench outscored San Antonio’s reserves 53-44.

The Nets lead the well-traveled series with the Clippers 48-41 since coming to the NBA in 1976. The Nets played their first NBA season in Uniondale as the New York Nets before a long stint in New Jersey.

The Clipper franchise was known as the Buffalo Braves until 1978, when it moved to San Diego and changed its name. The Clippers have been in Los Angeles since 1984.

The Nets have the longest winning streak in the series, taking five straight games from Nov. 20, 2000, to Nov. 8, 2002. The longest streak for the Clippers is three in a row, which they’ve done twice, most recently from Dec. 12, 2015, to Nov. 14, 2016.

The highest-scoring game in regulation came on Nov. 14, 2016, at Staples Center in L.A., when the Clippers blasted the Nets 127-95. Brooklyn put up 127 on the Clippers in a 127-122 double-overtime win at Barclays Center on Nov. 29, 2016.

The Nets’ best effort in regulation came on Dec. 9, 1978, in a 125-120 win over the San Diego Clippers at Piscataway. L.A. owns the biggest blowout of the series, a 123-84 win at Staples Center on Jan. 22, 2015.

Individually, John Williamson scored 48 points for the Nets in that Dec. 9, 1978, game. In the same game, World B. Free (then known simply as Lloyd Free) had the Clippers high mark of 38 points in the series.

Since moving to Brooklyn in 2012, the Nets are just 4-8 against the Clips. Their best individual effort since the move came in the double-overtime win on Nov. 29, 2016, when Sean Kilpatrick scored 38 points.

In regulation, Caris LeVert has the high mark with 27 points in a 123-120 loss at Staples Center on March 4.
