The Indiana Pacers and Houston Rockets resume their Global Games preseason matchup in Taipei early Sunday morning. No doubt all involved will be happy to return home following the game, but since they are playing the game, might as well make the most of the game time.

The big story in this game is Jeremy Lin playing as the first NBA player of Taiwanese descent which makes the Rockets a severe favorite among the locals in Taiwan. The Pacers struggled to get anything positive going when the two teams played earlier in the week in Manila, so there is much to build on from that effort. For starters, taking care of the ball and executing on the offensive end would be a big step in the right direction for the Pacers.
