This Friday night the Indiana Pacers and the Utah Jazz will face off at Vivint Arena in Salt Lake City, Utah. The game is scheduled for 9:00 PM ET. It will be the first time they will face each other this season.
Last Wednesday the Pacers suffered a sad loss against the Sacramento Kings, with a final score of 137-114. It was a tough game for the Pacers, so coach Rick Carlisle was not silent. “Tough game. This game is my fault. I didn’t have them prepared for what was coming. The transition points really tell the story of the game. We were a step slow,” Carlisle said.
On the other hand, the Utah Jazz are coming from defeating the Los Angeles Clippers 125-112, last Wednesday. Thus ending their five-game losing streak. The Jazz made more than 50% of their shots from the field and more than 40% of their three-point shots. Jordan Clarkson led the offense with his incredible 33 points and six assists. It seems that playing at home was a key factor in the outcome of this game. Lauri Markkanen who finished with 23 points and nine rebounds had this to say: “We were playing our style of basketball. We got good looks. It didn’t really matter who was shooting as long as they were making the basket and we were getting good looks.” Utah made it very clear that it has one of the best offenses in the NBA.
After a tough loss last Wednesday in Sacramento, the Pacers will need to play much better defense this time. And the Jazz looked like a good combination on both ends of the court, if they keep it up they will be able to match up with Utah.
