Vivint Smart Home Arena, Salt Lake City, November 26 – Utah Jazz for the 2nd time in this season have lost a game in an embarrassing manner. This time it was the Indiana pacers that schooled them. With this loss now, they have 9 victories and 12 losses and are sitting on the 14th spot of the Western Conference. Indiana Pacers are now 4th in the Eastern Conference with 12 wins and 8 losses.

This game was bad news for the Jazz from the beginning, since in the first quarter, Pacers managed to outscore them 33 – 25, and in the 2nd quarter they just increased their lead and after 24 minutes of game time they were up by 11 points, 58 – 47. Things started to look even worse in the 3rd for the Jazz, since this time the point deficit was 19 by the end of the period. It was quite obvious that they were furious in the 4th and only made things worse for themselves since the deficit only continued to increase as the game came to an end.

For the Pacers, Doug McDermott had a game high with 21 points and 6 rebounds, while he also received some valuable help from Myles Turner who had 16 points, 4 rebounds and 4 assists. For the Utah Jazz, Derrick Favors had a team high of 13 points and 8 rebounds.

Pacers will be again playing away from home, this time they will visit Suns on Tuesday. On Wednesday, Jazz will visit Nets.
