George leads Pacers over Jazz, 95-86

Paul George scored 19 points and the Indiana Pacers returned to their defensive ways in beating the Utah Jazz 95-86 on Wednesday.

Lance Stephenson scored 15 points, Luis Scola had 14 and Roy Hibbert added 13 points to win in Utah for the first time since an 84-60 victory on Nov. 29, 2005.

The Pacers were coming off their first back-to-back games of the season in which they allowed their opponent to reach 100 points - L.A. Clippers and Portland. But Indiana outscored the Jazz 27-19 in the fourth quarter and parlayed 14 Utah turnovers in 20 points.

Gordon Hayward's 3-pointer cut the Indiana lead to 79-76 before the Pacers scored nine straight points, capped by West's 20-foot jumper that just beat the shot clock, and never looked back.
