Mikal Bridges scored 30 points and seven rebounds, helping the Brooklyn Nets move closer to clinching a playoff berth in the Eastern Conference by holding off the Utah Jazz 111-110 on Sunday.

“I just look at has Mikal been able to improve as a player? Yes. On both ends of the floor? Yes. Can he still get better? Yes,” Nets coach Jacque Vaughn said. “There’s some things he’s doing more than he’s previously done, which is improvement. We want to continue to see his improvement. … How much improvement he’s made, I’m not sure; but he can get better and he has gotten better.”
