The Brooklyn Nets have been one of the most dominant sides ever since they added James Harden to their roster this season.

They were 8-6 when he made his debut for them and are now 30-14, managing to record 22 wins and losing just eight games during that stretch.

They seem to be the better side based on their recent form compared to the Utah Jazz, having won 16 of their last 18 games.

In their last game, the Nets defeated the Portland Trail Blazers 116-112 in a hard-fought battle.

James Harden led the charge for the side with 25 points and a career-high-tying 17 assists, with Kyrie Irving and Kevin Durant both unavailable for the Nets.

The duo will not feature in the game against Utah either. However, the Nets will still be looking to make a statement by beating the West leaders next.

The Utah Jazz, on the other hand, have looked off-color in the last few weeks after their scintillating start to the season. They have now lost six games of their last 12 games, which was quite surprising to see as they had recorded just five defeats in 29 games before that.

However, they head into this matchup on the back of two straight wins, having recorded victories over the Toronto Raptors and Chicago Bulls.

In their last game, Donovan Mitchell scored a team-high 30 points, while Rudy Gobert added another 21 to go with a career-high nine blocks to lead their side to a thumping 120-95 win over Zach LaVine and Co.

The win has come at a perfect time as Quinn Snyder's side prepare to face the mighty Brooklyn Nets next.
