Open Game Thread: Pacers at Rockets

The Pacers are in Houston tonight looking to to make it two wins in March. The Rockets come into the game having won three in a row and six of their last seven, with a solid lock on the fifth seed for the playoffs in the Western Conference.

Here is Bruno's preview. Looks like J.O. and Tinsley will both be able to go and Jeff Foster is a maybe. That leaves Marquis Daniels and David Harrison out tonight.

Here's a preview from the Rockets' point of view.  Of note, in the eight games since Yao Ming's return, the Rockets are averaging 112.2 points per game. Not good news if the Pacers slip into their poor shooting, poor defense mode.

About time the Pacers rose to a challenge and beat a playoff team on the road!
