Who’s Playing

Utah @ Miami

Current Records: Utah 7-1; Miami 6-2

What to Know

The Utah Jazz’s road trip will continue as they head to FTX Arena at 7:30 p.m. ET Saturday to face off against the Miami Heat. The neutral point spread forecasts a close one for these two.

The Atlanta Hawks typically have all the answers at home, but on Thursday Utah proved too difficult a challenge. The Jazz enjoyed a cozy 116-98 victory over the Hawks. Utah’s point guard Jordan Clarkson was one of the most active players for the team, picking up 30 points.

Meanwhile, Miami entered their game against the Boston Celtics on Thursday without any home losses — but there’s a first time for everything. Miami took a hard 95-78 fall against Boston. Point guard Tyler Herro wasn’t much of a difference maker for Miami; Herro played for 29 minutes but put up just six points on 3-for-11 shooting.

The Jazz’s win brought them up to 7-1 while the Heat’s loss pulled them down to 6-2. A couple defensive numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Utah have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 41.20%, which places them second in the league. But Miami is even better: they have been holding their opponents to a field goal percentage of 39.70%, which places them first in the league. We’ll see if that edge gives Miami a route to victory.
