The Brooklyn Nets make their annual visit to Salt Lake City Saturday night when they look to salvage a season split against the Utah Jazz.

The Brooklyn Nets will be looking for their first win in Salt Lake City in more than three years when they take on the Utah Jazz at Vivint Smart Home Arena on Saturday night.

The Nets (36-34) slid back to seventh place in the Eastern Conference Friday night after the Detroit Pistons stopped their two-game skid with a 111-97 win at home over the Los Angeles Lakers.

More from Nothin' But Nets

The Jazz (39-29) are percentage points ahead of the LA Clippers in seventh place in the West, but trail the sixth-place San Antonio Spurs by just a half-game.

Brooklyn hasn’t won at Utah since a 98-96 win on Feb. 27, 2016, and has lost four of its last five meetings and seven of nine against the Jazz.

The Nets opened their seven-game road trip on Wednesday with a 108-96 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder. On Thursday, Utah cruised to a 120-100 victory at home over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Brooklyn jumped out to a 17-point lead in the first half before the Thunder closed the lane in the second half and got their offense going, outscoring the Nets 66-44 after the break. Brooklyn trailed 88-87 with 7:40 to go before OKC closed the game with a 20-9 burst.

Spencer Dinwiddie led the Nets with 25 points. Ed Davis had 11 rebounds and D’Angelo Russell went for 14 points, seven assists and three steals.

The Jazz dominated the Timberwolves on Thursday, getting ahead early and finishing strong, leading by as much as 24 in the fourth quarter.

Donovan Mitchell paced Utah with 24 points and also had six assists. Rudy Gobert finished with 10 points, 13 rebounds and two blocks, Derrick Favors had 17 points, 11 boards and two blocks, Joe Ingles logged 12 points, eight assists and two blocks and Ricky Rubio also had eight dimes.

To find the highest-scoring game of the series, you have to go back to Nov. 21, 1978, when the New Orleans Jazz beat the New Jersey Nets 140-118 at the Louisiana Superdome. The Nets posted a 138-129 overtime win at Salt Lake City on Jan. 26, 1982.

Individually, Truck Robinson has the high game of the series with 51 points for New Orleans in that Nov. 21, 1978, affair. The Nets got their best game in the series from Bubbles Hawkins, who had 44 points in a win at Nassau Coliseum over the Jazz on Feb. 9, 1977.

Since moving to Brooklyn in 2012, the Nets are 4-9 against Utah, which has two three-game winning streaks in that span, most recently from Jan. 2-Nov. 11, 2017. Brooklyn has back-to-back wins just once, on Nov. 5, 2013, and Feb. 19, 2014.

The Nets have the highest scoring game of the series, a 118-107 win at Barclays Center on Nov. 17, 2017. Utah’s best came in a 116-107 victory at Salt Lake City on March 30, 2013.

The best individual scoring performance was posted by George Hill, who had 34 points for the Jazz in a March 3, 2017, win at Salt Lake City.
