The Utah Jazz will be fighting to snap a losing streak on Friday when they take on the Miami Heat at Vivint Smart Home Arena.

ABOUT THE HEAT (5-6): Dragic has scored in double figures and has at least one 3-pointer in each of Miami’s first 11 games, and he hit all 10 of his free throws in Wednesday’s win. “Greatness in this league is consistency, and Goran, you can book it every single night what you’re going to get from him,” coach Erik Spoelstra told the media. “He had a little bit extra punch to him in this game.” Fellow star Hassan Whiteside has run counter to Dragic with a very inconsistent stretch, but he notched his fourth double-double in six games this season with 23 points and 10 boards versus Phoenix.

ABOUT THE JAZZ (5-6): Rookie Donovan Mitchell led the woeful shooting effort against Philadelphia with a dismal 3-for-21 showing, while point guard Ricky Rubio continued to slump following a torrid start. Rubio, never a serious perimeter threat in six seasons in Minnesota, buried 11-of-21 3-pointers in a recent three-game stretch while averaging 23.7 points, but he is 1-for-14 from long range and shooting 25.7 percent overall during the losing streak. Fellow starting guard Rodney Hood has also struggled with accuracy of late, making 15-of-54 shots in his last four contests.

Oddsmakers opened the Jazz as -4-point favorites versus the Heat, while the game’s total opened at 195.5.

The Utah Jazz are struggling to rediscover their defensive identity and will take on a Miami Heat team that is coming off its best offensive effort of the season when the teams meet in Salt Lake City on Friday. After opening the season with a 5-3 record while holding every opponent to 103 points or fewer, the Jazz have dropped three in a row while giving up an average of 116.7.

They were a bit better on that end of the floor against Philadelphia on Tuesday, but shot a season-low 30.3 percent in a 104-97 loss. “Right now, I think we’re a little too much in our head,” forward Thabo Sefolosha told reporters. “We worry about not making shots and things like that. But those things take care of themselves. I think it’s mostly communication on the defensive end.” The Heat hope to provide a similar challenge after posting a 126-115 win at Phoenix on Wednesday to improve to 2-2 on their six-game road trip. Goran Dragic had a season-high 29 points as Miami shot 53.1 percent and outrebounded the Suns by a 53-34 margin.

Last time out for Utah, they were a 104-97 loser as they battled the 76ers at home. The Jazz failed to cover in the match as a -6.5-point favorite, while 201 combined points moved the game UNDER for totals bettors.

Miami won its last outing, a 126-115 result against the Suns on November 08. The Heat covered in that game as a -6-point favorite, while the 241 combined points took the game OVER the total.
