Pacers vs. Jazz Prediction & Pick
Both of these teams are fighting to stay alive in the NBA Playoff race and at least make the play-in tournament.

This game may be in Indianapolis, but it's the road team that enters with a major advantage. The Pacers have been crushed from beyond the arc as they allow an opponent three-point shooting percentage of 37.1% (No. 29 in NBA). The Jazz drain 14.1 three-pointers per game (No. 5 in NBA).
