The Brooklyn Nets carry a 4-game winning streak into their nationally televised matchup with the Oklahoma City Thunder to open a 7-game road trip.

It will be the first meeting between the Nets (36-33) and Thunder (41-26) since Oklahoma City stunned Brooklyn with a 20-point fourth-quarter comeback in a 114-112 win at Barclays Center on Dec. 5.

More from Nothin' But Nets

Brooklyn put up one of the NBA’s best defensive games of the season in a 103-75 victory at home over the Detroit Pistons on Monday, while the Thunder picked up a 98-89 win on the road over the Utah Jazz the same night.

The Nets held Detroit to just 27.8 percent shooting (27-for-97), the worst percentage in a game in the NBA this season, and led by as much as 31 points in the blowout.

Spencer Dinwiddie led Brooklyn with 19 points, Allen Crabbe had 14 points and 10 rebounds, D’Angelo Russell finished with 11 points and seven assists, Rodions Kurucs had 13 points and three steals and Jarrett Allen logged 11 points with two blocks.

In Utah Monday night, Oklahoma City led by as much as 17 points in the fourth quarter before the Jazz cut it to six with 4:15 to go. The Thunder answered with a 9-1 run to put the game away.

Dennis Schroder came off the bench to lead Oklahoma City with 23 points, while Russell Westbrook went for 23 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists. Paul George finished with 14 points, 11 rebounds and three steals and Steven Adams had 12 points and two blocks.

Since entering the NBA in 1976, the Nets are 33-56 all-time against the Thunder franchise and are 7-13 since the club moved to Oklahoma City in 2008. The Thunder own the longest winning streak in the series, taking seven in a row from Jan. 26, 2009, to Dec, 4, 2012.

The Nets have won three straight two separate time, the most recent coming from Feb. 3-Dec. 9, 2003.

But it is the Nets who have the highest-scoring game in the series, a 129-108 victory at East Rutherford on March 6, 1985. As the Seattle SuperSonics, the Thunder have put up 125 twice, in a 125-111 win at Seattle on Nov. 29, 1978, and in a 125-120 triumph at East Rutherford on Jan. 23, 1987.

The Nets scored the biggest blowout of the series with a 126-91 win at East Rutherford on Nov. 11, 2000. The Sonics had a 114-84 win at Seattle on Nov. 21, 1989.

Paul George has the series high in scoring with a 47-point outburst in Oklahoma City’s win at Barclays Center on Dec. 5. The top output by a Net was 41 points from Stephon Marbury in the Nov. 11, 2000, win at East Rutherford.

Since moving to Brooklyn in 2012, the Nets are 6-7 against the Thunder, with neither team able to win more than two in a row. The Nets did so on Jan. 2, 2013, and Jan. 2, 2014, and again on Nov. 3 and 21, 2014.

The Thunder have back-to-back wins on Nov. 18, 2016, and March 14, 2017, and in a current two-game streak that began on Jan. 23, 2018.

Oklahoma City put up the most points in the Brooklyn era in a 124-105 win at home on Nov. 18, 2016. The Nets have hit their high twice, in a 116-85 win at Barclays Center that is also the largest win of the Brooklyn era by either team, and again in a 116-106 win at home on Jan. 24, 2016.

The Thunder’s largest win against Brooklyn was a 120-95 victory at Barclays Center on Jan. 31, 2014.
