Halftime score: Jazz lead Pacers 46-45

The Indiana Pacers have been fighting from behind most of the night, but a pair of strong closes to the first and second quarter has put them in better position than they were when they found themselves trailing by double figures to the Utah Jazz in each quarter. The Pacers closed a 12 point deficit, taking a 42-41 lead with a 14-1 run. The Jazz regained the lead, heading into the locker room up by one.

David West leads the Pacers with 11 points on 5-8 shooting as Lance Stephenson's seven second quarter points makes up his total for the half. Paul George has eight, but is just 2-7 from the field. Ian Mahinmi has been excellent again with six points and two blocks. The Pacers have stayed in the game despite shooting under 41% thanks by forcing 12 Utah turnovers, which they've used to score 13 points. Derrick Favors has 11 for the Jazz.
