Looking for ten in a row and on the second night of a back-to-back, the Miami Heat find themselves down 13 after one half in Salt Lake City. The Jazz have one of the best home court advantages in the league but Miami also committed nine turnovers in the first 24 minutes and certainly look tired.
LeBron James is five of ten from the floor and has 12 points so far. Shane Battier is the one Heat player to get some offensive rhythm going, going a perfect five for five from three-point range to keep Miami relatively in it. The Jazz shot 44 percent in the first half, pulling away in the second quarter for the double digit lead.
