Playing on the road in the NBA is a tough task at the best of times, but it’s even more challenging out of conference on the East Coast. The Utah Jazz have really struggled on the road, winning just three games of 19. Utah comes into Miami off a 98-91 loss at Denver, and the Jazz have lost eight of their last 10 overall. Six of those eight losses came by a double digit margin. One of those losses was a 107-83 loss at Denver. Here is what I said prior to that game: “Both the Jazz and the Nuggets are missing key players due to injury, but Denver has proven it has the depth to overcome adversity. The Nuggets have enjoyed a significant advantage at home in Denver. They are 11-3 straight up at home, and they have covered the spread in six of their last eight in Denver. The home team has won six straight in this series, and has covered the spread in all six of those games as well. Utah is just 3-13 on the road this season, only the Mavericks have lost more road games in the Western Conference. They are coming off a 103-89 home loss to Oklahoma City, and Rodney Hood struggled, hitting just 3-of-14 shots and scoring just nine points.

The Jazz have lost six of their last seven road games, and they are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games following a straight up loss of more than 10 points. Nikola Jokic has averaged over 22 points per game in his last three starts, and he won’t have to worry about Rudy Gobert tonight.” I see no reason why we should see a dramatically different result here tonight.
