Kyrie Irving scored 48 points, including 21 in the fourth quarter for a second straight night, to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 117-106 win over the Utah Jazz on Friday. Kevin Durant was out with a knee injury.

“I thought you saw from him throughout the course of the night different segments of the game where he really put his imprint on what we were trying to do offensively,” Brooklyn coach Jacque Vaughn said, via ESPN. “It paid dividends, especially in the fourth quarter.”
