(Indianapolis, IN) - The Indiana Pacers ran their winning streak to five games, surviving a late Utah challenge to defeat the Jazz 94-91 at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
David West led the Blue-and-Gold with a game-high 25 points as Indiana improves to a league-best 46 and 13. Paul George added 22 points with CJ Watson finishing with 13 points in place of George Hill.
Hill missed both of the weekend wins over Boston and Utah after suffering a bruised shoulder in Thursday night's victory over Milwaukee.
Brownsburg native Gordon Hayward scored 16 of his team-high 21 points in the second half to lead Utah. The former Butler star scored his final five points in the last seven seconds and had a chance to send the game to overtime, but his three-point attempt rimmed out as time expired.
Derrick Favors finished with 17 points and ten rebounds as the Jazz lost for the fifth time in their last seven games.
The Pacers host the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night.
