Mitchell said he thought he was fouled on the final 3-point attempt — that Butler prevented him from landing. pic.twitter.com/oCatORPjIp10:41 PM

Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Mitchell: 37 points 14-28 FG, 7 assists.
Conley: 18 points, 7 assists, 3 rebounds.
O’Neale: 15 points, 6 steals.
In Orlando tomorrow. See y’all then. – 10:00 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Mitchell misses a three over Butler and that does it. The Jazz fall in Miami 118-115….37 for Mitchell. 18 for Conley. Huge comeback comes up short. Utah falls to 7-2 on the season. On to Orlando and the Magic tomorrow night – 9:59 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Mitchell misses the game-tying 3 attempt… Heat pull out the win, 118-115. – 9:58 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Mitchell and Conley hit consecutive threes and the Jazz pull within 112-99….4:33 remaining – 9:38 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Heat 87, Jazz 78 going into fourth. Butler with 22 points, Lowry with 17 points, 10 rebounds, 6 assists. Mitchell with 27 for Jazz. – 9:19 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Donovan Mitchell just put together a superstar three minutes….Jazz within 72-69…Mitchell has 25 and is willing Utah back into this….he and Bogdanovic and O’Neale have all been pretty darned good tonight so far – 9:09 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Mitchell up to 10 points in the quarter. He’s been terrific in scoring tonight — that drive, pivot, and pull-up for an open midrange is such a smart counter for him to add to his game. Jazz within 3. – 9:08 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The Jazz lost the second unit minutes at the beginning of the second quarter pretty handily. But the Mitchell lineup got them back, partially because he and Bogdanovic were really hard to guard in the first half – 8:44 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
The chess match in this one is fascinating. The Heat are running 1-3 pick and rolls to death, trying to get mismatches from the screen action. The Jazz are going at Herro and Robinson….Mitchell simply doesn’t care who’s on him…sub patterns are fascinating as well – 8:43 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Heat up 55-52 at the half. Besides the last play, Mitchell was very good: 6-11 FG, 15 points, 4 assists. Bogdanovic has 12. Jazz have a 117 ORtg in the halfcourt against the vaunted Miami defense while not shooting great… pretty impressive. – 8:40 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
Halftime of a good one in Miami. The Heat lead the Jazz 55-52….Miami led by as much as 11 in the second quarter. The Jazz methodically worked their way back. Mitchell has 15, Bogey has 12…. – 8:39 PM
Andy Larsen @andyblarsen
Mitchell *has* to do more with 3.8 seconds left in the half. That’s either a selfish play or an unwise one. – 8:38 PM
Ira Winderman @IraHeatBeat
Heat 55, Jazz 52 at half. Lowry with 12 points, six rebounds. Mitchell 15 points for Jazz. – 8:38 PM
Ben Anderson @BensHoops
After one, the @Utah Jazz trail the @Miami Heat 27-24.
Non Donovan Mitchell Jazz players are 0-6 from three while Spida is 2-4.
He’s got 10 first quarter points.

Heat 27, Jazz 24 after one. Lowry with seven points for Heat. Mitchell 10 for Jazz. – 8:06 PM
Tony Jones @Tjonesonthenba
2:44 remaining in the first quarter: the Jazz lead the Heat 22-21…..Mitchell with 10 in the first quarter….by the way that change of direction off the dribble that froze Jimmy Butler was crazy.. – 8:00 PM
David Locke @DLocke09

The Heat and Jazz are the only two teams in the NBA currently with both a top-five offensive rating and top-five defensive rating.
Should be a good one tonight at FTX Arena. But of course, Kyle Lowry and Donovan Mitchell are both questionable for tonight’s game. – 11:05 AM

James Ham @James_HamNBA
Mitchell fouls out Plumlee. Savvy move from the rookie. – 12:06 AM

Kane Pitman @KanePitman
Interested to see if we get the first start of the season for Bobby Portis with the New York frontline of Julius Randle and Mitchell Robinson. Probably has more to do with where his recovery timetable is at with the hamstring but we’ll see.. – 6:33 PM
