Game preview: Utah Jazz at Miami Heat

Miami • When Ty Corbin was asked which of his players would match up with LeBron James, the Utah Jazz coach didn't have an answer Monday morning.

It's something the Jazz were still trying to figure out a few hours before tipping off against the Miami Heat, the first game of a five-game road swing.

"He whole league is trying to figure out how to stop him," Corbin said.

James, the NBA's reigning MVP, is averaging 25 points and better than six rebounds and six assists a night for the 17-6 Heat.

"This team in Miami is still one of the best teams, if not the best team, in the league," Corbin said. "You have to make sure you're on your game against them."
