Dec. 19, 2012 at 9:57 PM   |   Comments

INDIANAPOLIS, Dec. 19 (UPI) -- George Hill and Paul George ignited Indiana to a huge first-half lead Wednesday and the Pacers went on to overwhelm Utah 104-84.

Both Hill and George scored 20 points while lifting Indiana to a 53-31 advantage at intermission. Utah scored only eight points in the second period while making just 3-of-20 shots from the field.

It was the third loss in four games for the Jazz, who are 9-2 at home this season, but only 5-11 on the road.

Gerald Green led Indiana in scoring with 21 points, but much of his time on the floor came after the Pacers had put the game away.

Indiana shot 51 percent from the field and hit 9-of-16 from beyond the 3-point line. The Pacers' lead grew to as many as 32 points in the third period.

Utah was led by Derrick Favors with 16 points.
