Once, during a break in the booing, Randy Foye heard a call from the Brooklyn Nets bench.

“Don’t leave him,” Nets’ coach P.J. Carlesimo begged his team.

It didn’t matter. Foye tied a Utah Jazz record with eight 3-pointers Saturday, and led the Jazz to a 116-107 win over former Jazz point guard Deron Williams and the Brooklyn Nets.

“A couple of times,” Foye said, “they were up on me. I was three or four feet behind the line, they were basically heat checks. I said, ‘Hey, let me see if this one goes in.’ ”

Eight out of nine times, it did. Foye’s night matched the record set by Jazz assistant coach Jeff Hornacek in 1994, when he made eight 3s against the Seattle SuperSonics.

Foye led the Jazz with 26 points on 9-of-11 shooting.

“One shot,” Al Jefferson said, “he took like six feet beyond the 3-point line. I said, ‘Wow.’ He was just on one tonight. It was good to see.”

The 18,008 in attendance at EnergySolutions Arena seemed hellbent on devoting the night to making Halloween sounds every time Williams, the former inhabitant of the No. 8 Jazz jersey, touched the ball. But Foye, a 40.5 percent 3-point shooter on the season, stole it back.

“He’s been a treat all year for us,” coach Tyrone Corbin said.

Mo Williams and Al Jefferson scored 20 points apiece for the Jazz, while Paul Millsap had nine points, six rebounds and a career-high nine assists.

But Foye’s best game as a member of the Jazz (38-36) couldn’t have come at a better time. The victory kept the Jazz a step ahead of the Los Angeles Lakers (38-36), thanks to the tiebreaker, for eighth in the Western Conference playoffs.

Starting with the Jazz down 61-55 with 8:50 left in the third quarter, Foye made three 3s in under 3 minutes, putting the Jazz up 71-65. They never trailed again.
