Utah Jazz vs Miami Heat Analysis

The Utah Jazz have remained in playoff contention all season. At 33-35, they currently occupy the 10th and final playoff spot in the Western Conference – just a game behind Dallas and Minnesota who are tied for 7th, as well as 2 games behind 6th place Golden State. So right now, it looks like the Utah Jazz are right where they need to be to stay competitive. But they also have Portland, Oklahoma City and New Orleans on their heels; only 3.5 games separate 6th place Golden State from 13th placed Portland. The Jazz came into this game with some momentum having won two straight games; they defeated Orlando on Thursday followed by Charlotte 119-111 the following Saturday. Talen Horton-Tucker led Utah with 37 points, 8 rebounds and 10 assists for a commanding lead.

The Miami Heat aren’t playing their best basketball right now. They have lost 8 of their last 12 games and sit at 36-33, ranking 7th in the Eastern Conference – three games behind New York for that 6th and final guaranteed playoff spot. Miami also lost two of its last three games, including a 126-114 loss to Orlando on Saturday night that needed overtime to decide. Miami got thoroughly outrebounded 54-35 in the rebound department. Jimmy Butler kept Miami in it with a three at the buzzer to send it into overtime. Though 15 of his 38 points came during that fourth quarter, Butler didn’t care as they ultimately lost.
