Utah Jazz. Brooklyn Nets. You know how important this game is to a team trying to a) make the playoffs, b) tank for ping pong balls. Both teams can be winners tonight if they work together. The Jazz need to get back to .500. The Nets don't want to be even close to 20 wins by the time all the other teams starting to sit guys out. Somehow the Nets beat the Suns in their last game, and the Jazz got whooped by the San Antonio Spurs. Both teams want to correct those streaks immediately! Starting tonight.
