Details:

The Jazz had an excellent start of the season winning 7 of their first 8 games but have dropped 3 of their last 4.

The last defeat was very unexpected as the Jazz lost at home 111-100 to the Indiana Pacers who had a 4-8 record coming to Salt Lake City.

The Jazz had a decent field goal percentage at 47% but struggled from the three-point line shooting only 28.1% and they missed 10 of their 23 free throws.

Donovan Mitchell was again the leading scorer with 26 points which is his season average. Rudy Gobert added a double-double with 19 points and 11 rebounds. Everyone else was beyond their level as Jordan Clarkson was the only one with double-digit points at 11 but shooting only 2-of-10 from three.

In the previous game, Utah won 110-98 against the last year's Eastern Conference runner-ups the Atlanta Hawks. The whole team was on the expected level shooting 50.6% from the field and 39.5 from the three-point line.

The Heat had a similar start winning 6 out of the first 7 games but are currently on a three-game losing streak as they failed to win on the road trip against the Nuggets, Lakers and Clippers.

The last loss 112-109 against the Clippers was very disappointing since the Heat dropped a 17-point lead without their top player Jimmy Butler. Bam Adebayo took over the leading role recording 30 points and 11 rebounds. Kyle Lowry had 25 and Tyler Herro who started in Butler’s place had 23 which wasn’t enough for a win.

Key facts

  • Jimmy Butler and Markieff Morris are questionable for tonight's game while Victor Oladipo is still out for the Heat
  • Rudy Gay will not suit up for tonight's game
  • The home team has won the last 10 regular-season games between these two teams

Both teams need this one to get back on the winning track. The Jazz are a very tough opponent at home having a 4-1 record and is hard to believe to lose back-to-back at home after dropping the last one to the Pacers. Jimmy Butler is questionable and without him, the Heat would not stand any chance against the Jazz which makes the bet on Utah’s win covering the -5.5 points an easy one.
