New Jersey made a run and closed the gap under double figures a couple of times, getting within 92-84 on a three-point play by Lopez with 5:50 to go.
However, Boozer made a layup, Andrei Kirilenko sank two free throws, Deron Williams hit a jumper and Mehmet Okur added a layup in an 8-2 run that put away the game.
NOTES: This opened a five-game road trip for the Jazz, who also will play at Atlanta, Charlotte, Orlando and Miami. ...The Nets had only 10 players in uniform with Chris Douglas-Roberts, Yi Jianlian, Jarvis Hayes, Tony Battie and Keyon Dooling all hurt. Douglas-Roberts missed his third straight game with a knee strain. ... Yankees pitcher CC Sabathia sat next to the Nets' bench. ... Kirilenko played 24 minutes and moved past Adrian Dantley for sixth place in Jazz history for minutes played.
