Man, I don't know. The Utah Jazz need to start winning these games at home. Tonight they will get a chance to do so against the Indiana Pacers who will be playing without, at least, rookie lotto bigman Myles Turner. Monta Ellis is questionable. For the Jazz they will be playing without starters Rudy Gobert and Dante Exum. Trevor Booker has a viral infection and did not go through shoot around. So, yuck. The Jazz beat the Pacers in their gym, tonight could be payback for Paul George. Gordon Hayward usually handles him; however, it is likely that he is going to start at PF tonight. C.J. Miles has been balling all season long and if his shots are falling in his old gym it could be tough for the Jazz.

Utah will be forced to go small. Indy knows how to play at that pace. Expect high scoring.
