Tied at 74, the Heat took the lead for good after a 13-4 spurt in the final 2:35 of the third period. Herro and Lowry hit 3-pointers to key Miami’s surge.

Lowry’s jumper capped a 12-0 run early in the second quarter that gave the Heat their first double-digit lead at 43-32. Three-pointers from Royce O’Neale and Bojan Bogdanovic helped the Jazz outscore Miami 12-6 in the final 3:35 of the period and get within 55-52 at halftime.

TIP-INS

Jazz: It was the third time Hassan Whiteside has played at Miami since leaving the Heat, and those three appearances have come with three different teams. He played at Miami with Portland in January 2020 and Sacramento in January 2021.

Heat: Duncan Robinson’s only 3-pointer in the first quarter gave him at least one made from beyond the arc in 57 consecutive games, tying his own Miami franchise record previously set in the 2019-20 season. ... Robinson has now played in 156 consecutive games, two away from matching Bam Adebayo for the fourth-longest streak in Heat history.

Miami has played five of its first nine games at home. It’ll now start a stretch where it plays nine of its next 11, and 22 of its next 33 games on the road. The Heat are the fourth team in NBA history that’ll start with 26 road games in their first 42 contests, joining the 1996-97 Heat, 2006-07 Milwaukee Bucks and 2012-13 Cleveland Cavaliers.
