It’s a cross conference showdown on Monday night in the Lonestar State.
The Indiana Pacers travel to the Toyota Center to take on the Houston Rockets.
This is the second meeting between the two teams this year. The Pacers won the first meeting 120-101.
The big question during the trade deadline was if Paul George would be traded and the Pacers would start a rebuild mode, or if the Pacers would try and get another superstar around George.
Well the Pacers didn’t trade Paul George and no superstar was brought in to play with him. George came out and said after the deadline had passed how he was upset that he was not kept in the loop during the trade deadline.
It will be interesting to see if that friction between Paul George and the Pacers front office will cause any problems on the court the rest of the season.
The Pacers come into this game having won only three of their last ten games. In their last eight they have only won one.
It’s pretty clear that the Pacers are still one or two pieces away from really competing for a championship so it will be interesting to see what they do this off season.
The Pacers come into this game with a record of 9-18.
The Rockets on the other hand were buyers at the trade deadline. They traded to get Lou Williams, who will contribute to what the Rockets already do a lot of, shoot the three ball.
Speaking of the three ball Mike D’Antoni came out and said he would like the Rockets to shoot 50 three pointers a game, which is a crazy amount.
So if nothing else everyone can expect a lot of three’s flying from the Rockets in this game. The Rockets come into this game averaging 115.2 points per game well shooting 46.6 percent from the field and 36.5 percent from behind the three point line.
For the Rockets to win they need to push the pace in this game. The faster this game is played at, the better the chance the Rockets have to win, and cover the spread.
The Rockets come into this game with a record of 22-7 at home.
