The Pacers capitalized on Jazz mistakes with defense to run away from Utah.
The Indiana Pacers were on the right side of a good ol' fashioned blowout, putting on a clinic against the Utah Jazz as part of their most lopsided victory of the season, topping the Jazz 104-84, snapping a 12-game streak of games scoring under 100 points. Indiana led the Jazz by as many as 30 throughout the second half, a lead they accumulated after holding the Jazz to eight points in the second quarter.
Paul George led the Pacers with a 20 point, 11 rebound double-double, getting help from George Hill, who scored 20, and Gerald Green, who had 21. The Pacers outscored the Jazz 52-28 in the paint, shooting over 50% for the first time all season, and holding Utah to 30% shooting for much of the game.
