Open Game Thread #47: Pacers vs. Rockets

I'm on the grind today, so many links to share so little time. Hopefully I can catch up this weekend. As for the game tonight, here's Bruno's Scouting Report which focuses on the brutal matchup Yao Ming presents, regardless of whether O'B goes small-ball or not. There is some good news, Jamaal Tinsley will return to action tonight.

For some Rockets smack, check out The Dream Shake which just happens to include a Q&A with me where I enjoy a moment to reflect on the greatness of Reggie Miller.

Here's what the efficiency numbers say:

Team Pace Off.Eff. Def.Eff.
IND 96.9(2nd) 105.8(19th) 107.6(17th)
HOU 89.8(15th) 105.9(18th) 103.9(3rd)

Projected Starters
Mike Dunleavy F Shane Battier
Troy Murphy F Luis Scola
Jeff Foster C Yao Ming
Danny Granger G Tracy McGrady
Jamaal Tinsley G Rafer Alston
