Series Notes:

-The HEAT and Jazz meet for the first of two matchups this regular season. 

-Last season, they split the series, 1-1, with each team winning on their home floor as Miami has currently won four-straight against Utah at home. 

-The HEAT are 30-38 all-time versus the Jazz during the regular season, including 19-14 in home games and 11-24 in road games. 

What to watch for:

-The HEAT are outscoring opponents by +8.1 points in the first quarter this season, outscoring their opponents by +65 (239-174). 

-Miami is averaging a +12.5 scoring margin, the second-highest in the NBA, second to only tonight’s opponent, the Jazz (+12.6). 

-Duncan Robinson has currently connected on a three-point field goal in 56-straight games, the second-longest streak in team history, and one short from tying the longest streak in franchise history, a record he previously set. 

-Miami has held opponents to under 45 percent from the field and under 40 percent from three-point range in every game this season, marking as the longest such streak to begin a season in franchise history. Only one other team in NBA history has accomplished that feat through at least the first eight games of a season, when the New York Knicks did so in the first eight of the 2005-06 campaign.
