The Pacers found themselves on the wrong side of a missed call to suffer a loss in Utah.
The Indiana Pacers committed 22 turnovers allowing them to get outscored 28-13 in points off turnovers, giving the Utah Jazz a home win as the Pacers take on their second straight loss for the first time since December 9th. The loss comes with Indiana shooting 54% for the game, but it meant little when the Pacers folded defensively for the second straight road game.
The Pacers used a few big defensive possessions to erase Utah's six point lead in the final minute to force overtime, but in the extra period, the Pacers got caught in an overtime mess that led to Indiana's loss. David West led the Pacers effort with 24, with 23 from Paul George as five Pacers reached double figures. Stops on defense were hard to come by, especially when Utah scored 60 in the paint, led by their front line of Al Jefferson and Paul Millsap, who shot a combined 19-33 in the win.
