Rockets vs. Pacers game thread: MLK Day fun

It's an early game for the Rockets because of the holiday. Fun!

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports

The Rockets get a game against the (still) shorthanded Pacers to try to come back from the drubbing against the Warriors on Saturday night.

The game starts at 4:30 p.m. CT, so hopefully the Rockets didn't go out too late last night, I believe this is the earliest start they've had this year (though I have done no research to support that).

Dwight Howard needs some help. It's disconcerting that the best team in the Western Conference was so effective in shutting down James Harden, but let's hope it was just an off night. He hasn't had a slump yet this year; every sub-par game he's had -- and there haven't been many -- he's followed up with another MVP performance.
