Pacers dump Jazz, 104-84

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) - Reserve guard Gerald Green scored a season-high 21 points to help the Indiana Pacers beat the Utah Jazz 104-84 on Wednesday night.

Paul George had 20 points, 11 rebounds and four blocks, and George Hill also scored 20 and had five assists for the Pacers, who matched their largest victory margin of the season and won for the fourth time in five games.

Derrick Favors scored 16 points, Alec Burks had 12 and Mo Williams 11 for the Jazz, who lost their third in the last four games.

Indiana scored more than 100 points for just the fourth time this season - and the Pacers have won all those games. Indiana also shot 51.2 percent from the field, the first time this season the Pacers were above 50 percent.

Utah was coming off a 92-90 win at Brooklyn on Tuesday night, while Indiana lost at Milwaukee on Tuesday.

The Jazz took an early 11-6 lead, but the Pacers dominated the rest of the first quarter and led 31-23 heading into the second.

George dominated the early part of the second quarter to help the Pacers extend their lead. Indiana led 53-31 at halftime, holding the Jazz to their lowest point total in a half this season. Utah made just 3 of 20 field goals in the second quarter and scored only eight points, a season low for a quarter. Hill had 14 points at halftime and George had 12.

A three-point play by David West early in the third quarter pushed Indiana's lead to 56-33, and a layup by Hill extended it to 25 points. By the time the Jazz called timeout, the Pacers led 60-33.

Indiana continued to dominate defensively, and the Pacers ended the third quarter with a 76-51 lead. The Pacers' largest lead in the quarter was 32 points. Utah was 6-for-18 from the field in the period, and by the end of the quarter only one Utah player had scored in double figures. Indiana had four players in double figures at that point.

NOTES: Utah G Gordon Hayward, a former Butler University star, scored eight points in 13 minutes at Bankers Life Fieldhouse, just a few miles from where he played college ball in Indianapolis. . Utah G Jamaal Tinsley, a former Pacer, did not play. . No Jazz player scored more than two points in the second quarter. Utah went 0-for-8 from 3-point range in that period. . Indiana C Roy Hibbert, who had scored in single digits three of the past four games, finished with 12. ... Pacers first-round pick Miles Plumlee played for the first time since Nov. 18. He had an alley-oop dunk in the final minute.
