Monday, November 26 finds the Indiana Pacers meeting up vs. the Utah Jazz for the second and final time of the 2018-19 regular season. The Pacers last played Friday losing to the San Antonio Spurs. Utah last played Sunday against the Kings winning via a blow-out and will play immediately again on the second night of their back to back set against the Pacers.
Last season, the teams split their season series and Indiana took the initial meeting this season. The Pacers hold the all-time record having bested the Jazz in 44 of their 87 matches.
Despite missing Oladipo the Pacers have found ways to win via the depth they’ve added. This is best demonstrated via the team leaders which boasts five different players in key categories.
Oladipo leads the Pacers in scoring with 21.4 points per game. Domantas Sabonis has demonstrated growth and is the teams top rebounder per game (9.7). Other leaders are Myles Turner for blocks (2.6), Darren Collison for assists (4.2) and Cory Joseph for steals (1.5).
Indiana easily defeated the Jazz in their first meeting November 19th outscoring Utah 121 to 94. Six players scored in double digits for the Pacers in the win. Bojan Bogdanovic (21), Sabonis/Aaron Holiday (19), while Doug McDermott, Thaddeus Young and Myles Turner all had 12.
Domantas Sabonis (sprained right ankle) and Myles Turner (sore left ankle) are both questionable for Monday. Victor Oladipo has sat out the previous three games with right knee soreness and remains questionable for Monday.
Heading into the match on Sunday the Jazz were on a three game losing streak with losses to the Lakers, Kings and the first meeting versus the Pacers.
Two main issues surfaced for the Jazz — scoring and rediscovering their elite defense. Last season Utah was the top ranked defensive team in the Association, but so far this season they rank 13th.
Although scoring was cited as a possible concern few expected the Jazz to struggle so much defensively. The earlier loss to the Pacers reflects the scoring issues as only three players scored in double digits: Ricky Rubio (28), Jae Crowder (14) and Rudy Gobert (12).
That said the Jazz ousted the Kings 133-112 and this was without Mitchell in the lineup.
Donovan Mitchell left the game versus the Lakers early after suffering a rib contusion, did not play versus the Kings and remains questionable for Monday versus the Pacers.

Free Indiana Pacers vs. Utah Jazz NBA Prediction:
Difficult game to predict since both teams’ stars may miss the match. But, the Pacers have rest advantage while the Jazz has the altitude and home court advantage although their .500 home record is another oddity of this season.
