Sunday, February 7th the Utah Jazz and Indiana Pacers pair up for a matinee effort in their first meeting this season.
The Pacers hold the all-time record between the clubs with 46 wins in 90 meetings. Last season, the clubs played twice with each team winning one contest.
After their 11-game win streak came to an end the Jazz dusted themselves off and got right back to work and enter this match on a 3-game win streak and the best record in the association.
Their most recent win came against the Charlotte Hornets (138-121). The game was never in question as the Jazz took a 15 point halftime lead and never looked back.
Utah displayed their skills on both sides of the court as they posted a franchise record of 26 perimeter makes. The ball was zipping around the court as Utah also registered 32 assists.
Although Mike Conley struggled to fit in with Quin Snyder’s complicated system in his inaugural year this season is a completely different story. Unfortunately, he left the last game early when he experienced tightness in his hamstring.
Bojan Bogdanovic led the three-point assault connecting on seven of his 3-pointers en route to 31 points. Donovan Mitchell was close behind with 30 points while Rudy Gobert delivered his typical double-double of 12 points and 15 rebounds
Elijah Hughes (ankle) is a game-time decision while Conley is expected to be out.
On the opposite end of the spectrum to the Jazz are the Pacers who have lost 4 of their last five games. The most recent versus the New Orleans Pelicans.
It was a tough loss where the Pacers trailed by 18 but made it a game taking a one-point lead with just over four minutes to play but used up so much energy fighting back they couldn’t hold on for the win.
The top scorer for Indiana was Justin Holiday with 22 points.
Jeremy Lamb hasn’t missed a step since his return 10 games ago averaging 13.2 points, 4.6 rebounds, 1.6 assists, 1.0 steals while shooting 48.8 percent from deep. He scored 17 points versus the Pelicans.
For the first time this season, Domantas Sabonis failed to reach double-digit scoring (8) after collecting a career-high 33 points the game prior. It was only the third time he failed to collect a double-double with one of those outings because he left the game early with a knee injury.
Dough McDermott (14), Malcolm Brogdon (13), Myles Turner (12), and Goga Bitadze (10) were the other double-figure scorers while T.J. McConnell had 15 assists.
TJ Warren (foot surgery), and LeVert (kidney) are out indefinitely.

- The teams are 5-5 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings

- Over/Under is 6-4 in the teams last 10 head to head meetings
Free Utah Jazz vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
This isn’t a great time for the Pacers to be facing the red hot Jazz. The Pacers’ wings and guards will test the Jazz and they are a feisty group who doesn’t quit.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Jazz ATS
The one advantage the Pacers will need to rely on is their paint scoring (53.9) which ranks third in the league while it’s the one area the Jazz defense allows points (47.9) which ranks 21st. The key matchup will be Gobert on Sabonis but I still like the Jazz to cover.
