The Pacers finish their four-game roadie against the Jazz but hopefully their mindset is on revenge and not returning home.
The Jazz outworked and outplayed the Pacers on Halloween back in Indy to hand the Pacers one of their six losses so far this season. That loss had all around Pacers Nation questioning the Pacers spread approach and how long it may take to figure out how to play the new style.
Since that game the Pacers are 12-3 and have certainly figured out how to play with both a big and spread lineup. They will benefit from Utah missing missing Rudy Gobert, their monster defensive presence around the rim. Paul George needs to bounce back from poor shooting performance in Portland when he failed to get anything going in the second half when the Pacers desperately needed it.
Former Butler and Brownsburg star, Gordon Hayward leads the Jazz averaging over 18 points, 5 rebounds and 3 assists per game.
