Last night volume beat efficiency, what does NBA History say?

Last night volume beat efficiency, what does NBA History say?

There have been 314 different players who have shot 20+ FGA against the New Orleans / Utah Jazz. Some have helped their team win, but most have not. Last night Paul George was shooting horribly, but as shooters do he kept shooting. Eventually he managed 19 points off of 20 shots, and the National Media message here is that he led his Indiana Pacers to a victory over the Utah Jazz. Gordon Hayward scored 38 points off of 24 shots, and his career high in his home state wasn’t enough to get the win. That got me to thinking that perhaps we Jazz fans over-emphasize efficiency over volume....

Utah Jazz Fall In Indiana Despite Huge Games From Hayward And Gobert

The Utah Jazz got a career-high out of Gordon Hayward, and a near triple-double from Rudy Gobert, but still came up short, falling to Indiana 107-100. In Monday night’s contest between the Utah Jazz and Indiana Pacers, the Jazz trailed for most of the game, and the Pacers came away with a big home win.

Paul George hits dagger, lifts Pacers to 107-100 win over Jazz

Paul George hits dagger, lifts Pacers to 107-100 win over Jazz

Paul George scored 19 points, including seven late, as Indiana grabbed a late win over Utah. Jeff Teague had 21. Key defensive plays from the Indiana Pacers and clutch shooting by Paul George helped lift the Pacers back into the win column, defeating the Utah Jazz at home. The Pacers needed George’s heroics late, when as was the case most of the night, their lead evaporated, forcing them to dig in and make plays when it mattered. Indiana took the lead for good late in the first, but the Jazz made them work to keep it on multiple occasions. None more than in the third quarter when a Rudy...

Indiana Pacers 107 - Utah Jazz 100: Game Recap

Indiana Pacers 107 - Utah Jazz 100: Game Recap

Utah Jazz limp home to Beehive state after 1-3 East trip The Utah Jazz (43-28) just didn’t have it tonight as they dropped their third game in a row on this trip - this night to the Indiana Pacers (36-34) by the final score of 107-100. The loss, one where Indiana was ahead for the vast majority of the game, spoils a new career high 38 points for Indiana native Gordon Hayward and a career high 8 blocks for Rudy Gobert.

Utah Jazz vs. Indiana Pacers: Game Preview

Utah Jazz vs. Indiana Pacers: Game Preview

Can Rudy, Gordon, and the gang bounce back? The Utah Jazz (43-27) are in Indiana to play a game of basketball against the Indiana Pacers (35-34). The Pacers are 5-5 in their last 10 games. More importantly, they have been alternating wins and losses for the past 12 games. If the mysterious pattern is to continue to hold true then Indiana is due for a win tonight. On the other side of the court you have our benevolent Utah Jazz who have made a habit of winning and losing games in little mini-streaks all season. Utah is coming off consecutive road losses vs. the Cleveland Cavaliers and the...

Jazz vs. Pacers: Game thread, lineups, odds, TV info and more

The Pacers face some familiar faces and a tough foe when the Jazz visit the Fieldhouse on Monday night. The Pacers normally bounce back pretty well after a lackluster performance but that trend will be tested on Monday night when they host the Utah Jazz after taking a 25-point loss in Toronto on Sunday. The Jazz have been in Indy for a couple of days and are looking to bounce back from losing their last two game in Cleveland and Chicago. Oh, and George Hill will make his return to BLF with the Jazz who beat the Pacers in Salt Lake City, 109-100 in January. Hill scored what was then a...

Utah Jazz vs Indiana Pacers: Five things to watch

On a two-game skid, the Jazz need to put together a quality effort against an inconsistent Pacers team. Well, here we are. We have twelve more games left in the season, and they’re not cakewalks. However, the Utah Jazz should be favored to win 4 of their next five, starting with this game against the Indiana Pacers. (The next ones are against he New York Knicks, Los Angeles Clippers, New Orleans Pelicans and Sacramento Kings) These Pacers have been one of the most consistently inconsistent teams in the NBA this season, showing flashes of good basketball and turrible basketball, often...

Utah Jazz vs Indiana Pacers: Overtone - Oh to be relevant again

Future Finals matchup? I hope so The Indiana Pacers are fighting to become relevant again in the NBA. Kind of like what the Jazz are trying to do (*receives promotion to “Captain” Obvious*). The Pacers are perhaps one of the sadder on-court stories in the last five years. They went from Eastern Conference powerhouse to fighting for a playoff spot year after year. As recently as 2014, they were going toe-to-toe with LeBron James’ Heat teams. With a trio of young, rising stars in Paul George, Lance Stephenson and (kinda young) Roy Hibbert, the Pacers were the next big thing. Then...

Utah Jazz Downbeat #2056

Indiana, Butler, the NCAAs, Gordon Hayward — AND MORE! Late Downbeat is late. I blame El Niño. You can blame Amar, though. The Utah Jazz won the first game of their road trip by soundly beating the Detroit Pistons. The good guys have followed that up with losing a close one against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and then just not being able to make any shots at all against the Chicago Bulls. If the team wants to salvage this East trip they will have to win tonight, against the Indiana Pacers. That would put the Jazz at 2-2 and with some face saved. (And the head to head results...
