SALT LAKE CITY, Utah – A lane violation by the Utah Jazz cost the state of Utah from receiving a free Chick-Fil-A chicken sandwich the day after the Indiana Pacers fell to the Jazz.

Utah hosted the Pacers at Vivint Smart Home Arena on Monday, January 20.

The Utah Jazz and Chick-Fil-A have partnered this season for the Fowl Shot Promotion which rewards Jazz fans with a free chicken sandwich when an opposing player misses two consecutive foul shots during the fourth quarter.

Indiana’s Goga Bitadze went to the free-throw line after being fouled by Jazz center Tony Bradley late in the fourth quarter of the MLK Day game.

Bitadze missed his first free throw attempt, setting up the Fowl Shot reward for Jazz fans with another miss.

Before the Pacers center released the shot, Jazz forward Georges Niang committed a lane violation by entering the paint. Bitazde shot the ball and it missed the cylinder.

Officials called Niang for the violation and allowed Bitazde another attempt. The Indiana center didn’t miss his second chance and spoiled the state of Utah’s chance at the free chicken sandwich on January 21.

The Jazz went on to defeat the Pacers 118-88 for their 30th victory of the season.

Utah sits at 30-13 overall and 17-3 at home.

The Jazz travel to the Bay Area for their next game. Utah plays against the Golden State Warriors (10-34) on Wednesday, January 22 at 8 p.m. (MDT).
