The Miami Heat are hoping to head into a nice holiday break with a third consecutive win when thy host the Utah Jazz on Monday night. The Heat won’t play again until Friday when they host the Indiana Pacers.
The Jazz (18-11) come in as winners of their last five games and will give the Heat a test from the perimeter. The Heat are second in the NBA in 3-point percentage at 38.5%. The only team ahead of them are the Jazz at 38.7%. So we’ll have two of the most efficient 3-point shooting teams in the NBA on display against each other.
The Jazz will be without starting point guard Mike Conley, suffering from a hamstring, while the Heat will also be without Justise Winslow once again.
FiveThirtyEight gives the Heat a 66% chance to win this game.
