Game Preview: Heat take on surging Jazz in Utah at 9PM

New, comments

The Heat start its Western Conference road trip tonight in Utah

NBA: Miami Heat at Utah Jazz Russell Isabella-USA TODAY Sports

Game Story:

The Heat is coming off a fourth third straight win and trying to salvage a season that looked ambiguous just a few weeks ago. That is until Jimmy Butler returned and the Heat started to resemble the Heat from the Bubble. Just like that, the Heat are back within striking distance in the Eastern Conference but it’s not going to be easy. Especially tonight as the Heat take on the Jazz, who despite having no heat connections in their name, are currently the hottest team in the league. This will be their first game of a six-game Western Conference road trip, that could dictate the rest of the season for the Heat. (Not that we’re putting a lot of weight on it).
