Pacers 15 Jazz 10 with 5:41 left in 1st quarter
Pacers are going to have a hard time scoring without Oladipo but the Jazz are turning the ball over at an alarming rate and giving the Pacers open court chances.
Pacers out hustling the Jazz to 7-0 run

Pacers 43 Jazz 30 with 7:43 left in 2nd quarter
Jazz were down 20.
Pacers defense is causing the Jazz major turnover problems.
Jazz had 8 turnovers in 1st quarter to 16 points
Jazz ball movement has improved as game has progressed
Pacers 47 Jazz 41 with 3:13 left in the 2nd quarter
Ricky Rubio leading the way with 16 points and 3 of 3 from 3
Pacers are playing drop big defense and Jazz have struggled with this
Consistent ball movement without turnovers

Pacers 57 Jazz 47 at the half
Pacers are without Oladipo
For the season they are 23rd offense after a make, 17th after a miss and 4th after a turnover. Without Oladipo it is even more vital for the Pacers to get out and run

Pacers 71 Jazz 53 with 6:46 left in the 3rd quarter
Jazz defensive rating tonight is a 120 and the Pacers don’t have Oladipo
3rd game 4 night and 5th day of a trip but I would have thought the Jazz could build off their defense in Boston better than this

Pacers 77 Jazz 63 with 3:55 left in the 3rd quarter
No numbers to back this up but feels like every 50/50 ball tonight has gone to the Pacers
Pacers 102 Jazz 81 with 6:22 left in the 4th quarter
This will be the 7th night this year the Jazz defensive rating is over 117. Not sure why. There is a decent explanation for each one but collectively it is a bit surprising considering how great the defense was a year ago

Pacers 121 jazz 94 Final Score
Not sure what happened here but the Pacers were terrific and everything they do well they did very well.
