NBA scores: On Florida visit, Jazz beat Magic, fall to Heat

Steve Mitchell-USA TODAY Sports

The Florida NBA teams both hosted the Jazz over the weekend, with Utah coming out of the back-to-back 1-1.

The Utah Jazz were in town over the weekend, taking the Florida trip to face both the Orlando Magic and Miami Heat. The Heat made the Jazz's welcome not all that comfortable, but the next night Utah was able to salvage a Florida split with a victory over the Magic. The Jazz escaped with an above-.500 record after entering on the edge of it to begin the weekend.
