The Indiana Pacers should be fired up to face the Utah Jazz on Saturday and to improve their level of play after losing by 20 points in Portland on Wednesday.

The Jazz should be equally motivated after getting run over by the struggling Los Angeles Lakers on Friday night. The Jazz also have a measure of revenge to exact after their performance against the Pacers back at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in mid-December. The Pacers ran past Utah in that game while holding the Jazz to just 31 first-half points.

The Pacers will face a different beast this time around in one of the harshest road environments in the league. But with two full days off, the Pacers should be rested and prepared to throw a strong effort at the Jazz. It should be interesting to see if Paul George can come up with a good performance on the road, where he has struggled overall this season, while trying not to go overboard in showing why he made the All-Star game.

In the end, the formula for the Pacers remains simple. They need to defend at a league-leading level to give themselves a chance to win and then find a way to generate enough offense to earn the win. That will require avoiding early foul trouble which was a factor in taking the life out of the team in Portland.
