Paul George scored 24 points, David West added 23 and Hill had 22 for Indiana (26-18), which lost for the third time in four road games. The Pacers outrebounded the Jazz 41-28.

The Jazz held a 98-94 lead when Hill stepped in front of Hayward's attempted pass to Jefferson and took it in for layup to cut the lead to two. Hill picked Hayward's pocket again a few seconds later, leading to Paul George's tying free throws with 9.5 seconds left.
The Jazz still had a time for a potential winning sho...

Burgeoning Utah Jazz superstar Gordon Hayward suffered a grade-one right shoulder sprain injury during Saturday’s 114-110 victory over the Pacers at the Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis, Indiana. The 6-foot-8, 210 pound Hayward, who the Jazz (24-20) snagged out of Butler University with the ninth pick in the 2010 NBA Draft, was hurt in the final minute of overtime after...
Jamaal Tinsley does not have the type of freakish physical ability that is commonly referred to as “NBA athleticism.” He didn’t have it when he was young and he certainly doesn’t have it now that he’s 34. What Jamaal Tinsley has is skills. The type of skills that earned him a nickname at New York City’s famed Holcombe Rucker Park. To earn any nickname at the Rucker...

At almost every NBA game, there is usually a dance cam to capture fans showing off their dancing skills on the Jumbotron.Earlier this week, one little Pacers fan got down to the classic Run DMC hit "Tricky" and made a name for himself on this fair Interweb:
The Utah Jazz, winners of their last four, travel to L.A. to take on the struggling Lakers, who are a phenomenal 2-10 in the month of January. L.A. needs a win, somehow, but facing a confident Utah team doesn’t seem to be the most favorable of matchups. Can the Jazz get the season sweep? AccuScore data does not seem to think so. The simulations have the Lakers as heavy favorites...
While the Indiana Pacers handily got by the Utah Jazz at home last month, they figure to face a much stiffer test in Salt Lake City.
The Pacers look to avoid a sixth consecutive road loss to a Jazz team seeking a season best-tying sixth straight home win Saturday night.
Indiana (26-17) dominated Utah (23-20) in almost every facet during a 104-84 rout Dec. 19. George Hill and Paul...
Well at least the offense appears to be clicking.
But the Pacers' lauded defense was nowhere to be seen, allowing open jumpers and back cuts to the basket all night long in a very disappointing 114-110 loss in OT.
The Pacers shot 54.3% from the field, which is almost unheard of for them, but they allowed 98 points in regulation and 16 more in overtime while allowing the...
