The Jazz hold on for one of their better wins of the season over the defending champs.
Jefferson finished with 23 & 11 to lead the Jazz, with Hayward scoring 22 and Millsap adding 17 & 9.
Hayward and Foye each hit 3-of-4 from 3-point range, as the Jazz converted 44.4% from beyond the arc while outrebounding the Heat 40-23.
LeBron James put together a 32/6/4/3/2 outing, coming 18 points short of eclipsing the 20,000 career points milestone. Chris Bosh scored 16, Rashard Lewis had 13, Mario Chalmers finished with 12, and Dwayne Wade contributed 11.
The 21-19 Jazz improve to two games above .500 for the first time since a Dec. 18 win over the Nets in Brooklyn put them at 14-12.
They’re now 12-4 on their home floor after beating a Heat team that now stands at 8-9 in away games.
Still 19 games to go on this home stand with five road games. Next up is LeBron’s old team (and everyone’s favorite player C.J. Miles’ new team) on Saturday night.
Jazz player of the game: Gordon Hayward
