The Jazz opened overtime with a 6-0 run and led 110-104 after a layup by Jefferson with 34.7 seconds left. However, out of timeouts, George hit his third 3-pointer of the game. The Pacers forced a stop with 13.9 seconds left and appeared to have a clean look at a corner 3 before Hayward barreled toward George.

After jumping at George, Hayward leapt once more to grab the ball out of the air, forcing West to reach out with both hands for the foul.

West led the Pacers with 24 points, but George, who was named an All-Star for the first time this week, finished with 23 points. Hill, meanwhile, nearly notched a triple-double, finishing with 22 points, nine rebounds and eight assists.

That the game had a strange finish was only fitting. The Jazz led most of the way, despite being thoroughly outrebounded. At the end of four quarters, they had 24 assists and 24 rebounds, and lost the final rebounding tally 41-28.

However, the Jazz compensated by recording 17 steals and scoring 22 points off 28 Indiana turnovers.
