The Indiana Pacers are back at it again on the road tonight when they take on the Houston Rockets. With three games and two trips in four days, the rookies for the Pacers are getting a crash course in NBA preparation.
No time to rest young fellas. Keep grinding and be ready for your next possession.
The Rockets will be without backup PG, Kyle Lowry but do expect to play Yao Ming some limited minutes, according to Jonathan Feigan. The Pacers will be without Josh McRoberts and T.J. Ford for sure. Brandon Rush mentioned he was on his way to Houston so I assume he'll give his sprained ankle a go after missing last night's game. With McRoberts out of the starting lineup, it is hard to say which way JOB will go at power forward. Solomon Jones has been first off the bench, but I wouldn't be surprised if Jeff Foster started for a few minutes with the Rockets playing big up front.
