The Indiana Pacers finish their efficient trip to Texas on Sunday evening when they face the Houston Rockets at the Toyota Center.

The Pacers were kept at arm's length on Saturday night in their 112-103 loss to the San Antonio Spurs so they should be plenty motivated to avoid playing from behind again when they face the Rockets. Houston continues playing without starters Kyle Lowry and Kevin Martin which should give the Pacers a chance to stay on the run and use their depth to their advantage.

Roy Hibbert will have to work in the post tonight since the Rockets are one team with some depth in the post with a pair of players that can look Hibbert in the eye. Samuel Dalembert normally starts, but was sick for the last game so Camby started and gathered 16 rebounds while also blocking six shots.

With the playoff race tightening in the Eastern Conference, every win continues to increase in value as the Pacers head into the final quarter of the regular season.
