18 days ago, the Rockets went to Indiananapolis and took care of the Pacers quite handily, winning 118-95.

Since that game, the Rockets have won five of six and the Pacers have won six of seven, losing only to the league-best Boston Celtics.

The Pacers have been a pleasant surprise in the beginning part of the season as they have Victor Oladipo leading the charge. He’s having the best season of his career, averaging 23 PPG. Originally a game-time decision, it was announced a little while ago that he will play tonight. If the Rockets want to win this game, they will have to contain him in some regard.

The Pacers won’t be an easy walk in the park, the Rockets will have to find their way to win tonight, but if the Rockets continue on the torrid pace they have been on since CP3 got back, it should be a Rockets win at the end of the fourth quarter tonight.

Projected Starters:

Indiana - Darren Collison, Victor Oladipo, Bojan Bogdanovic, Thaddeus Young, Myles Turner

Houston - Chris Paul, James Harden, Trevor Ariza, Ryan Anderson, Clint Capela
