Tip-off at 23:00 
Miami Heat will be looking to strengthen their playoff bid when they welcome Utah Jazz to the Kaseya Center on the morning of Sunday, March 3.
At least two spots are still very much up for grabs in the Eastern Conference, with Philadelphia 76ers (5th), the Heat (6th), Indiana Pacers (7th) and Orlando Magic (8th) separated by just 1.5 games.
Erik Spoelstra's team have a marginally better record than the Pacers (32-25 compared to 33-26) after beating Sacramento Kings 121-110 on February 27 to make it four wins on the spin.
The Heat overcame the Kings despite being without several key players after Jimmy Butler, Nikola Jovic and Thomas Bryant were suspended, while Tyler Herro, Terry Rozier, Josh Richardson and Orlando Robinson were ruled out through injury.

Bam Adebayo posted 28 points, 10 rebounds and seven assists, Jaime Jaquez Jr. added 26 as they closed the game out after Sacramento came within two points in the closing stages of the fourth quarter.
"That's what this group is about," Spoelstra said. "It really became so much less about anything in the huddle or coaching. Just use your competitive spirit and figure out how to win this game."
The Jazz need to turn things around quickly if they hope to qualify for the play-in tournament ahead of Golden State Warriors or Los Angeles Lakers.
Will Hardy's team snapped a five-game skid with a 128-109 victory over San Antonio Spurs on February 26 to close within three games of the Warriors (10th).
Lauri Markkanen led the scoring against the Spurs with 26 points as the Northwest Division franchise made 34 points off 20 turnovers from the opposition.
"We showed our hands and we kind of got in passing lanes, so that's what we got to do every game. Just fly around," Markkanen said.
"Not just running, but really trying to make the passes tough for them. We have some guys on this team with long wingspans and we try to use that to our advantage."
