The game was the fifth of the Heat's six-game trip that concludes Sunday against the Detroit Pistons, before the team's first home game in two week, Wednesday against the Washington Wizards.
This was the first game of a two-game season series that concludes Jan. 7 at AmericanAirlines Arena.
The teams split the two-game series each of the past five seasons, with the Heat winning two of the previous three meetings in Utah, including last season.
It was the second game of a four-game homestand for the Jazz, who entered on a three-game losing streak.
