NBA scores: Miami Heat look to carry momentum into weekend

The Miami Heat will be trying to move to 13-2 at home this season when the Utah Jazz come into town for a visit Saturday.

The Miami Heat extended their win streak to three on Thursday with a 110-95 win over the Mavericks in Dallas giving them a healthy helping of momentum heading into the weekend.

The Heat led by 36 entering the fourth quarter, which allowed them to rest both LeBron James (24 points, nine rebounds, five assists) and Dwayne Wade (19 points, five rebounds, six assists) for the entire final frame.

Miami will take the court again Saturday evening at 7:30 p.m. ET when the Utah Jazz stop by on their East Coast road trip. The Heat have already held six straight opponents under the 100-point barrier and will be looking to pull off the feat again against a Jazz team that hasn't broke the century mark in their last five games.

The Orlando Magic also have a weekend matchup with the Jazz one day after the Heat have their way with them. Unfortunately, they don't have the same luxury of momentum as their last game on Friday resulted in a 93-90 loss to a very bad Toronto Raptors team. The Magic already lost their first game to the Jazz as well with Al Jefferson dropping 31 on them in Utah's 87-81 victory at home back in early December.
