When the Brooklyn Nets face the Utah Jazz tonight, they won’t have any of their Big Three or their newest addition.
The Nets have announced star guard James Harden is out due to neck soreness and forward Blake Griffin — who made his Brooklyn debut on Monday — will also miss the game. Griffin and Harden both played in Tuesday’s 116-112 win against the Portland Trail Blazers.
Griffin will miss the game due to injury-management reasons for his left knee and so he doesn’t play the second night of back-to-back games. He came off the bench vs. Portland, finishing with eight points, five rebounds and two steals. Harden finished with 25 points, seven rebounds and 17 assists.
