SALT LAKE CITY -- Foye on fire.
Jazz guard Randy Foye stroked eight 3-pointers Saturday and finished with 26 points to help Utah earn a 116-109 victory over the Brooklyn Nets at EnergySolutions Arena.
Foye, who already holds the franchise record for 3s in a season, helped the Jazz set an all-time team record for 3s in a season, which now stands at 449 and counting.
Coming on the heels of Friday's road win in Portland, Ore., Utah (38-36) is riding a four-game winning streak.
Brooklyn (42-31) is the first playoff team the Jazz have beaten since knocking off Memphis on March 16.
"To come back after the win last night in Portland, traveling back ... to understand where we are at this time of year and all that's involved in that, to come out with the focus that these guys had, it's pleasing to see," coach Tyrone Corbin said.
The Jazz went into the game fighting for the playoffs. They began the night in a tie with the Lakers for the No. 8 spot in the Western Conference standings. However, with the tiebreaker over L.A. in hand, Utah owned the spot outright.
"(Getting the win) was big," Foye said. "Every game is huge for us."
In addition to Foye's effort, the Jazz also got 20 points apiece from point guard Mo Williams and center Al Jefferson.
Marvin Williams added 14 off the bench and Derrick Favors had 13.
As a team, Utah shot 56 percent from the field and went 10-for-17 behind the 3-point line.
After trailing 54-52 at halftime, the Jazz outscored the Nets 31-20 in the third quarter.
Foye led the charge by hitting five 3s in the period and added a sixth to start the fourth quarter.
"They found me when I was open," Foye said of his teammates.
The Nets' Brook Lopez scored a game-high 27 points and former Jazzman Deron Williams had 21 points and 11 assists.
DWill is 0-4 lifetime against his former team but Saturday's effort was his best against the Jazz.
"They play really well in this building and Foye went nuts in that third quarter," Deron Williams said. "You get down to a Jazz team by 20 in this building, it's really hard to come back. I've been on the other side of it, so I know."
JAZZ 116, NETS 107
* BEST PLAY: Deron Williams gets loose on the fastbreak and drives in for a layup, however, Hayward closes quickly and not only contests DWill's layup, but blocks it with 1:12 left to play before halftime. During a stop in the action a few seconds later, Williams has what appears to be a playful exchange of words with Hayward.
* BEST LINE: Foye went 8-for-9 from behind the 3-point line and finished with 26 points. He also had two assists, a rebound and a steal.
* KEY STAT: The Jazz went a sizzling 10-for-17 from behind the 3-point line.
* SIDELINE MOMENT: Former Jazz coach Jerry Sloan and his wife were in the stands for the game. They've attended several games throughout the season but considering Sloan's history with Deron Williams, his attendance was somewhat unusual. Sloan resigned as head coach in February 2011 after he and Williams had a heated exchange during halftime of a home loss to Chicago.
* MILESTONE: Randy Foye's 3-pointer at the 10:19 mark of the first quarter helped set a new Jazz franchise mark for most 3s by a team in a single season. This year's team went into Saturday's game tied with the 2009-10 team with 439 3-pointers.
* INJURY REPORT: Enes Kanter (left shoulder) missed his second straight game for the Jazz. ... Brooklyn went without guard Joe Johnson (right quad).
* ETC.: Foye, a Newark, N.J. Native hit five 3-pointers in the third quarter, helping the Jazz build a nine-point lead. That equaled a franchise record for 3s in a quarter, tying Gordan Giricek and C.J. Miles. ... The Jazz shot a sizzling 68 percent from the field in the first quarter, outscoring the Nets 33-28 in the opening period. ... At one point Utah was hitting 84 percent, while Brooklyn was hitting 75. ... The Nets took a 54-52 lead into halftime. ... Jefferson led the Jazz with 12 points. ... Lopez led the Nets with 13. ... Deron Williams had 11 points and three assists at halftime. ... Former Jazzman Mehmet Okur attended the game.
* UP NEXT: The Jazz have three home games this week. They play host to Portland on Monday, Denver on Wednesday and New Orleans on Friday.
