The Miami Heat travel west for a pre-Valentine’s Day date with the Utah Jazz at Vivint Arena on Saturday. Both teams are on a roll with the Jazz on a six-game winning streak, while the Heat have won four straight games.

Sporting the league’s best overall record at 21-5, the Utah Jazz are fresh from their conquest of the Milwaukee Bucks, whom they beat easily 129-115 on Friday. Rudy Gobert led the charge with 27 points, 12 rebounds, and four blocks.

The Miami Heat are slowly crawling up the standings as they have become healthier. All-Star forward Jimmy Butler has been sensational the past four games and had a triple-double in their 101-94 win against the Houston Rockets on Thursday night.

When these two teams meet, a rough affair can be expected with neither team giving an inch.
