Five-second inbounding violation on Jazz. Sound familiar?

This time Ennis early. He need something. Shooting .385 to Jazz's .706.

The Jazz lead 16-11 with 5:39 remaining in the first quarter
Derrick Favors gets the first points of the game with a putback bucket. Jazz should dominate interior game.
The Jazz and the Heat have tipped off
The fortune I got earlier this trip seems fitting to share seeing as the Jazz are playing against Luol Deng. http://t.co/09ASWYTXx1
Burke, Burks, Favors, Kanter and Hayward starting for the Jazz tonight
The Jazz are looking to win their second game in 14 tries tonight. Still, have played reasonably well in previous two road games
It helps the Jazz that Chris Bosh (calf) will not play.
While Jazz C Derrick Favors (ankle) will play, he said he's still pretty sore. He's not sure how much he can do tonight.
Ty Corbin coached Utah. This Jazz Director thing finally makes sense.
Uh, oh. Derrick Favors back for Jazz tonight. Then again, less Gobert reaching over the top of Heat big men.
Good news for the jazz as favors has missed the past two games
Spoelstra says Granger is questionable tonight vs Jazz. Bosh, McRoberts are out. Wade will play.
CORRECTION - Alec Burks is leading the Jazz in 3 point shooting over last 5 games at 44%. Leading for season at 37.5%
