Both the Jazz and Heat will feel they are championship contenders in the early part of this season. Jimmy Butler is questionable to play in this contest with an ankle injury, so Miami could be missing its best player. Utah has dealt with some injuries as well but Donovan Mitchell and Mike Conley appear to be healthy and hope to contend with a tough Heat defense in this one.
The Celtics and Cavaliers are both entering the second game of a back-to-back set. Boston got an overtime win against a shorthanded Milwaukee Bucks team Friday, while the Cavs blew out the Pistons. Cleveland has been a big surprise this season, with its young core playing well together on both ends of the floor. The Celtics have the best player on the floor in Jayson Tatum but there’s been some early chemistry issues under new head coach Ime Udoka.
