Can Jazz pull off upset vs. Pacers?
The Jazz will be looking to pull off the upset tonight when they host the Pacers at 9:00PM ET.
Oddsmakers from online sports book RealBet.eu have installed the Pacers as a 2-point road favorite after they opened as a 1.5-point favorite. The total, meanwhile, sits at 195 points for tonight's tip-off at Vivint Smart Home Arena.
Indiana saw its six-game winning streak come to an end in a 123-111 loss to the Trail Blazers on Thursday. Paul George finished with just 11 points on 4-of-17 shooting, which included 0-of-9 from 3-point range. George had been red-hot before the loss and he could be in for another rough night tonight as the Jazz have a defense that has wreaked havoc on many opponents this year.
