Pacers looking for faster start against Suns

Coming off their most lopsided loss of the season, the Indiana Pacers hope for a better start in Wednesday night's road game against the Phoenix Suns.

The Pacers were upended 118-88 on Monday at Utah against a Jazz team that has been tough at home on opponents all season with a 17-3 record in Salt Lake City. Making things even tougher for Indiana was that Monday's game came a day after defeating the Denver Nuggets at altitude.

The physical nature of the challenge showed up early and never went away. The Pacers shot 42.6 percent from the field in the first half and 41.9 percent for the game. They were outrebounded 53-30 and had just four second-chance points to 22 for Utah.
