Jrue Holiday led the team with 28 points while Anthony Davis was held to 15 points on 6-of-16 shooting. Nikola Mirotic started but could only muster 5 points while Emeka Okafor returned to the NBA for the first time since 2013.
Utah's Rodney Hood led all scorers with 30 points as he shot a perfect 4-for-4 from three-point range, contributing to the team's 66.7% night from beyond the arc.
The team will practice Tuesday before returning to action Wednesday against the Pacers at 7 p.m.
