Jazz Face Slumping Pacers

Feb 13, 2023, 12:24 PM | Updated: 12:29 pm

SALT LAKE CITY – The Utah Jazz will look to lock up a .500 road trip when they travel to face the Indiana Pacers on Monday night.

The Jazz are 1-1 to open their four-game road swing having beaten the Toronto Raptors on Friday before falling to the New York Knicks on Saturday.

After facing the Pacers, the Jazz will close their road trip in Memphis against the Grizzlies as they head into the All-Star break.

Westbrook Out For Jazz

Though Russell Westbrook is officially a member of the Jazz he is not with the team in Indiana.

The future Hall of Fame guard was acquired by the Jazz at the deadline but the team is giving him space to decide his future.

“We are open to all sorts of possibilities with him,” Jazz general manager Justin Zanik said. “And he has been very positive on being here in Utah and we’ve been very open to the possibilities of him.”

Juan Toscano-Anderson and Damian Jones, the two other players acquired in last week’s trade were in uniform for the Jazz on Saturday but did not take the floor against the Knicks.

Pacers Slumping Into All-Star Break

After a surprisingly hot start to the season, the Pacers have struggled as they prepare for the All-Star break.

Despite guard Tyrese Haliburton earning his first All-Star nod, the Pacers are just 2-8 in their last 10 games and have lost four straight.

Over their last 10 games, the Pacers have the fourth-worst Net Rating in the NBA and are ranked in the bottom 10 in both offensive and defensive rating.

The Pacers own the sixth-worst record in the NBA this season at 25-33.
