In Duke Brotherhood playoff action, Milwaukee beat Brooklyn in a throwback game 83-80 while Quin Snyder’s Jazz took out the LA Clippers 117-111.

Kyrie Irving had 22 for the Nets along with five rebounds, one assist and three steals. Somehow Brooklyn channeled the 1990-era Knicks complete with an in-your-face showdown between Kevin Durant and Raleigh native PJ Tucker. Bonus feature: a Nets security guard ended up shoving Tucker. The series is now 2-1 in favor of the Nets.

The Jazz have now won 52 games, the most in the league. The only other team to win more than 50 is Phoenix, with 51.

On Friday night, the Suns will meet Denver and Austin Rivers up 2-0 while Seth Curry and the 76ers will see the Hawks, with the possibility that Cam Reddish might be back.
