The Indiana Pacers continued their impressive game recently, beating the Charlotte Hornets 125-113 yards late on Wednesday night in the fourth quarter to defeat the hosts in a high-scoring contest. For the first time in almost two years, the team now has a winning record again.
Tonight, the Pacers stay on the road to visit the Houston Rockets, who have the worst record in the Western Conference at 3-13 and the second worst in the league. This should be a pretty good opportunity for Indiana to build momentum.
Last season, the Pacers defeated the season series, winning both contests against the Rockets. Houston leads the all-time streak 57-42 despite Indiana winning five straight.

Indiana Pacers vs. Houston Rockets Prediction
Both teams have not been good defensively so this will be a fight to decide which team outperforms the other. The Rockets have pretty good creators on their team, with makeup similar to the Pacers’ style, but with Indiana playing a role and heralding a much more efficient offense, expect the Houston visitors to come out of the gates strong.
