Two of the highest-scoring offenses in the NBA will get together on Sunday evening for a game of up-and-down basketball in the midwest.
Houston will attempt to get its 10th win of the season on Saturday against Memphis before it gets on the road and travels north to Indianapolis.
The Rockets’ opponent on Sunday could not be much more different than their opponent on Saturday. The Grizzlies will try to grind the Rockets to a halt and will likely have trouble doing so at the Toyota Center.
The Pacers, meanwhile, will be happy to run with Houston for 48 minutes in Indiana.
Both these teams are in the top-eight in terms of points per game. The Rockets shoot fast and score efficiently, the Pacers just really push the ball.
James Harden has been off to a quietly superb start for the Rockets. He’s scoring 30 points per game on just over 20 field goal attempts. The only place he can really get much better is with his turnovers.
He’s averaging five a game because the ball is always in his hands in Chris Paul’s absence.
The Pacers snapped a four-game losing streak with a big win over the Chicago Bulls. They’ll get a day off before welcoming in the Rockets.
Domantas Sabonis returned from injury to play against Chicago and contributed eight points and nine rebounds in 24 good minutes off the bench. Victor Oladipo scored another 25, including a 360 dunk on a wide-open fastbreak following a steal.
Oladipo will likely have his hands full on defense with Harden so he’s going to have to decide if he wants to try to lock him down as best he can on defense and let his teammates take on most of the scoring or if he wants to get into a scoring duel with Harden.
He can try to do both but may not make it.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction: the Rockets win big.
This isn’t an easy spot for Houston, on the road on the second night of a back-to-back. But I don’t think Indiana matches up well with the Rockets whatsoever.
Indy will try to run with Houston but the Pacers don’t score near efficiently enough to take down the Rockets.
