David West has 14 points as the Indiana Pacers lead the Utah Jazz 48-45 at the half.

Gordon Hayward earlier scored a jumper at the buzzer to give the Jazz a first quarter lead, but it has remained close since then, with Indiana edging in front before halftime.

The Pacers shot 62 percent from the field to Utah’s 50 percent, but rebounding is where the Jazz have struggled. Utah had only nine rebounds in the half, compared with Indiana’s 20.

Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson each have 10 points for the Jazz.
