The Miami Heat and Utah Jazz played a defensive slugfest for 45 minutes on Friday night.
Then, Philly Cheese simply took over.
On a night when both teams clanked and clanked and clanked shot after shot, the Heat found a way to survive behind Dion Waiters, who keyed a 13-0 run over the final 2 minutes and 45 seconds of the game and lifted Miami to an 84-74 victory at Vivint Smart House Arena.
The Heat, which improved to 6-6 and 3-2 on this six-game West Coast trip, shot 39 percent for the game and held the Jazz (5-7) to 33.8 percent shooting.
