Jazz beat Pacers in OT thanks to controversial call

Salt Lake City, UT (Sports Network) - Al Jefferson scored 25 points and Paul Millsap added 21 points and five steals to lead the Utah Jazz to a controversial, 114-110, overtime win over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday.

Trailing 112-107 with 6.4 seconds left, George Hill nailed a deep 3-pointer to pull the Pacers within 112-10 with just 2.2 ticks showing.

Millsap then appeared to throw the inbounds pass off the backboard then caught the carom in bounds and was quickly fouled.

The officials huddled briefly to discuss the play, but decided to allow Millsap to attempt a pair of free throws, which he sunk.

David West's pass on the ensuing inbounds pass sailed out of bounds and the Jazz held on for the win.

Gordon Hayward scored 15 points and dished out six assists, Randy Foye scored 14 points and Derrick Favors added 11 for the Jazz, who improved to 15-4 at EnergySolutions Arena this season.

West finished with 24 points, Paul George added 23 and Hill finished with 22 for the Pacers, who dropped back-to-back games for the first time since dropping two straight on Dec. 7 and Dec. 9.
