The Nets ride into Salt Lake City having won two of their last three games but neither of those wins came against a top-flight team. The Jazz are just that. With conference Player of the Week Deron Williams and Paul Millsap becoming the latest re-enactment of Stockton and Malone, Utah is 7-4. They could be the best team the Nets have faced yet this year. Before the Jazz lost to the Thunder at home Monday, they had won five in a row, four of them come from way behind thrillers on the road.
Raja Bell, Andrei Kirilenko and Kyrylo Fesenko are all game-time decisions.
The Nets could be intact and healthy. The NBA didn't suspend Devin Harris for his flagrant vs. Blake Griffin and Terrence Williams is hoping to end a four-game absence due to an abdominal strain. The game will also be a day in Russian sports history: the first time a Russian player will try to beat a team owned by a fellow Russian. There will be five more of those this season against the Jazz and Knicks.
