Ive said countless times over the last month or so that you shouldn't be betting against the Jazz until this ridiculous run cools off. However, we're getting points with a Heat team that's showing signs of putting things together and playing their best ball of the season. The Heat are coming off their best performance of the season with a win over the Raptors. This won't be an easy game for the Jazz. give me the points.
