Lebron James, and the Heat beat by the worst team in the West
Every great team has a game or two that they give away in a long 82 game season. The Heat (35-14), couldn't handle the Utah Jazz (17-33) Saturday night in Utah. The Heat had an opportunity to win in Utah Saturday. The Heat were down 87-79, before they went on a 10-4 run, cutting Utah's lead to just two points.
The Jazz came charging back, Williams hit back-to-back 3-pointers, and sparked Utah to a 94-89 win over the Miami Heat. Dwyane Wade had 19 points for the Heat, and LeBron James was 4 of 13 from the field for 13 points. That was James' lowest scoring total since he had 13 points in a 104-88 win over Atlanta on Nov. 19.
The Heat are now four full games back of the Pacers, who are 39-10 this season. The two teams seem destined to play for a second year in a row in the Eastern Conference Finals. The season series so far is tied, with two more games remaining to settle the tie break if they tie at seasons end.
