Brooklyn Nets beat Utah Jazz and clinched a Play-In spot, but dreams high of the Playoffs thanks to Kevin Durant: he was all alone on the court and scored almost 40 points in another historic day in the NBA.

By Facundo Di Bona (@facudibona).

Everything matters little if you have Kevin Durant and Brooklyn Nets enjoyed him against Utah Jazz in another NBA day: it was a victory for the locals by 114-106, without Kyrie Irving, Ben Simmons, Andre Drummond and Joe Harris.

The Nets, hit by the absences, gave the flag to Durant and he just took care of leading them to victory. On top of that, Seth Curry was injured during the game and only completed 12 minutes on the court.

Steve Nash had to bring a new starting five to the table, his 40th NBA regular season starting five in 72 games played.

It didn’t matter, really, because Kevin Durant was on the court. The forward had no mercy on the Utah Jazz and scored 37 points, 9 rebounds and 8 assists on 4-of-7 from three-point range.

Durant took advantage, on multiple occasions, of his pairing with Rudy Gobert and Hassan Whiteside. A candy for the best scorer in the NBA who is having an incredible month of March: 30.8 goals on average with 55% from the field and 42% from three-point range.

With this superlative version of Durant, Brooklyn Nets breathes: they won 6 out of 7 games in March and seem to be definitely clinging to the Play-In in the eighth place of the Eastern Conference alone with a balance of 38-34.

It would be difficult, but not impossible, to reach the Playoffs: Brooklyn Nets are two games away from the seventh place -Toronto Raptors- and three games away from the fifth place in the hands of Cleveland Cavaliers.

Meanwhile, the Utah Jazz saw a streak of three straight victories snapped and are feeling the encouragement of the Dallas Mavericks, who got an important win over the Minnesota Timberwolves and are just one game away from fourth place and, with it, the home-field advantage in the next Playoffs for the title.
