The Utah Jazz arrive in Indy riding a 11 game winning streak, poised to be heard among the league's elite come playoff time. Carlos Boozer recently returned to action for the Jazz, although he missed their last game on Sunday against Toronto and remains a game-time decision with an ankle tweak. The team won all six games Boozer played in before the ankle issue intervened.

Earlier in the season, the Pacers were ambushed in Utah but battled their way back into the game before running out of gas and time. Both teams were running and gunning in Utah so I imagine we'll see the same thing tonight. One thing I hope we don't see again, is a field day from the floor for Mehmet Okur. Okur lit up the Pacers for a career-high 43 points in Salt Lake City, draining shots from all over the gym.

Here are the Pacers.com Matchups. Danny Granger is not expected back tonight, still battling the foot injury that has sidelined him the past 9.5 games.

For the Utah perspective, check out SLC Dunk.
