The Utah Jazz are now 8-5 following yesterday's loss against the Miami Heat, marking their second loss in a row. Miami was in control for the entirety of the game and even had a 26 point advantage at the beginning of the fourth quarter. However, Utah, led by Bogdanovic and Mitchell, made a massive rally in the fourth and went on an 18-0 run. Unfortunately for the Jazz, it was a little bit too late as the Heat took the 6 point victory (105-111).
Rudy Gobert gives praise to Miami
During the post-game press conference, Rudy Gobert gave the Heat players a lot of praise, "We've got to get better. It's a long season," Gobert said. "These guys play really good basketball. I think the way they connect, the way they move the ball, and the way they share the ball is something we want to do as a team consistently."
Quin Snyder upset with early turnovers
Jazz head coach Quin Snyder emphasized the forced errors his team committed early in the game. "I think the way we started slow, some of the mistakes offensively and some of the turnovers, we're consistently making the same mistakes. A lot of the time, it involves making the simple play. When that happens, it's very difficult to defend off turnovers."
Overall, a great game by both teams in which the Heat prevailed as they managed to play more structured basketball, had great spacing and created a lot of movement, which put immense pressure on the Jazz.
