The Brooklyn Nets host the Utah Jazz Wednesday night at Barclays Center in the 1st of 2 meetings this season. Here’s how to follow the action.

The Brooklyn Nets on Wednesday night play the third of four consecutive games at Barclays Center when they host the Utah Jazz for a 7:30 p.m. Eastern tip.

The Nets (8-13) are 0-3 at home this season against Western Conference opponents and enter the game having lost three straight games overall and four in a row at Barclays Center.

The Jazz (9-12) have lost four of their last five and six of their last eight, but have defied conventional wisdom by going 7-6 on the road and just 2-6 in Salt Lake City this season.

More from Nothin' But Nets

Brooklyn has had a similar season, with a 3-6 mark at home compared to posting a 5-7 record as the visiting team.

Both teams are coming in off losses at home, albeit by completely different routes. The Nets surrendered a 13-point lead in the final 5:38 in a 127-125 loss to the Philadelphia 76ers on Sunday.

Utah, meanwhile. was blown out at home by the Indiana Pacers on Monday, 121-88. It was the third loss by at least 27 points in eight games for the Jazz.

D’Angelo Russell finished with a season-high 38 points and eight assists for Brooklyn against Philadelphia on Sunday, while Spencer Dinwiddie matched his career-high with 31 points. Jarrett Allen added 17 points and 10 rebounds.

On Monday night, Utah trailed the Pacers 58-47 at halftime and things got completely out of hand in the second half as Indiana outscored the Jazz 63-41 after the break.

Derrick Favors led Utah with 13 points and eight rebounds. Ricky Rubio added eight assists and Joe Ingles went for 10 points and five steals. Rudy Gobert logged 12 points and two blocked shots for the Jazz.

Utah played without Donovan Mitchell, who was out with a rib contusion, while the Pacers did not have All-Star Victor Oladipo due to a sore right knee.

The Nets are 31-57 against the Jazz since entering the NBA in 1976. That record includes a 5-7 mark from 1976-79 when the Jazz were in New Orleans.

The series includes a 12-game winning streak for Utah from Jan. 28, 1995, to Nov. 28, 2000. The longest winning streak by the Nets is a four-game run from Dec. 17, 2003, to Nov. 9, 2005.

The Jazz have the high scoring mark in the series, set in a 140-118 win over the New Jersey Nets  in New Orleans on Nov. 21, 1978. The high mark for the Nets was a 138-129 overtime win on Jan. 26, 1982, in Salt Lake City.

Their highest total in regulation came in a 137-96 victory at Piscataway, N.J., on Feb. 14, 1980. That was also the most lopsided game between the teams.

Truck Robinson set the series high with 51 points for the New Orleans Jazz in that Nov. 21, 1978, victory. The high total since the team moved to Utah came on March 16, 2008, when Carlos Boozer dropped 41 points.

For the Nets, the high game came from an even less likely source — Bubbles Hawkins scored 44 points for the Nets in a Feb. 2, 1977, victory over New Orleans.

Since the Jazz moved to Salt Lake City, the high mark is 34 points, set by Stephon Marbury on Feb. 28, 2000, and matched by Devin Harris on Nov. 29, 2008.

The Nets are 4-8 against Utah since the 2012 move to Brooklyn. Brook Lopez set the scoring mark with 27 points on March 30, 2013, and matched it on Nov. 5, 2013. Joe Johnson also had 27 for Brooklyn against the Jazz on Feb. 19, 2014.
