NBA Twitter reacts to Nets’ clutch 117-106 win over the Jazz

The Brooklyn Nets visited Vivint Arena on Friday to face the Utah Jazz and won 117-106. This was the first of two matchups between the two teams this season and Brooklyn leads the series 1-0.

For the Nets, Kyrie Irving dropped 48 points and 11 rebounds while Nic Claxton had 20 points and four blocks. Royce O’Neale had 13 points in his return to Utah and Seth Curry had 10 points off the bench.

For the Jazz, Jordan Clarkson had 29 points and five assists while Lauri Markkanen had 22 points and 11 rebounds. Talen Horton-Tucker had 17 points off the bench and Malik Beasley had 12 points.

After a lifeless three quarters from Kyrie Irving on Thursday against the Phoenix Suns, Irving started this one on fire. He was able to score from all over the court and had some strong finishes at the rim as well.

This was a back-and-forth affair as both teams were essentially even in most statistical categories. However, Brooklyn was able to win at Utah despite the Jazz’s bench out-scoring the Nets’ bench 32-21.

Here’s how NBA twitter reacted to the Nets’ impressive win:
