IC Cold Links: Pacers beat Kings, Deron Willilams and the Jazz up next

If you buy something from an SB Nation link, Vox Media may earn a commission. See our ethics statement.

The Pacers looked all too familiar in the first half last night.  It seemed all too much like last year on the defensive end.  The game was tied at half, but this year's Pacers showed up once again in the third quarter.  They came out hot and fought off Beno Udrih and DeMarcus Cousins, who both had very solid games for the Kings.  The Pacers allowed a few mini runs, but were strong and consistent enough to keep the lead and come out with another solid win.

The Pacers now have the task of trying to stop the red-hot Utah Jazz, who currently sit at 14-5.  The Jazz have an all around solid team, but it will be interesting to see what they do to stop Deron Williams.  Al Jefferson is acclimating to his new team quite well so far, it should be a fun battle to watch down-low against him and the Bash Brothers tandem, Tyler Hansbrough and Josh McRoberts.
