Predict the Score: Utah Jazz vs Indiana Pacers

The Jazz look like a completely different team behind the helm of Trey Burke.  Tre, Alec, G Hay and Favors (the real core 4?) lead the Jazz to a 109-103 victory.  What’s great is that it was against a Houston team that was on a roll.  The Jazz might get these teams overlooking them often and that can do wonders for the Jazz.

Tonight the Jazz host the Indiana Pacers or as they have been recently called the “beasts of the East”.  Indiana lost just their second game of the season against Portland on Monday night which leads me to believe the Pacers will be ready for this game.  Paul George scored a career high 43 in the loss and Hayward scored a season high 29 in the win.  Tonight will be the first time these two play each other since the comparisons of the two became nationwide by some analysts.

I expect this to be a hard fought game and for the final to be in the 80′s.

My prediction: Jazz 83 Pacers 86

The standings are as follows: (make your prediction in the comments below or on google+ under the article in the Locked on Sports community or tweet at me @Jazz9titans for a Jazz prize at the end of the season)

    Dang, I was two points low on each team. If only PG had missed his last circus shot and Favors didn’t have the ball land in his lap for that last dunk.
