Injury Update: Jazz Get Another Chance Against the Pacers

The Utah Jazz will aim to make it six in a row versus the Indiana Pacers on Martin Luther King Day.

The Utah Jazz will host the Indiana Pacers at the Delta Center on Monday night. Although Utah’s health was a problem at the start of the season, its recent hot streak has been trouble-free. The Pacers will be without their greatest player, and the Jazz are healthy going into the game.

Tyrese Haliburton, Indiana’s top scorer, is still sidelined as a result of his hamstring injury from last week. Aaron Nesmith’s shin and Bruce Brown’s knee are also suspect.

When it comes to playing teams that are devoid of their greatest players, the Jazz have recently been quite fortunate. Against the Jazz, Damian Lillard, Joel Embiid, and LeBron James have all been missing from Utah’s past five-game winning streak. Utah, on the other hand, will not be offering any regrets since they were dealt a cruel blow in the opening quarter of the season.

With a victory over the Pacers, Utah will try to extend its longest winning run of the year. The Jazz’s longest winning streak of the season was three games before this one. They may tie the NBA record for the longest streak of the season with a victory over the Pacers, which would make it six. The Orlando Magic and the Los Angeles Clippers now hold that mark, which is nine.

This is the third game of a six-game homestand where Utah is currently 14-5 this season. Utah is starting the game as a 7.5-point favorite according to the oddsmakers. It is scheduled to begin at 7:00 p.m. MST.
