Shooting 67 percent from the field, the Jazz were led by Gordon Hayward and DeMarre Carroll off the bench, who each had 12 points.
Utah got off to a slow start and trailed the Heat early. Then the Jazz turned on some heat of their own, finishing the first quarter on an 18-7 run and leading Miami by five points.
The Jazz extended their lead in the second quarter, and led by as many as 17 points.
