The Indiana Pacers tip off back-to-back games in Texas on Wednesday night when they visit the Houston Rockets.

Lance Stephenson is expected to be in the lineup after missing Monday's win over Atlanta, according Mike Wells on the scene in Houston. Point guard George Hill is a game-time decision which is actually good news while David West and Danny Granger have been ruled out. Not good news.

UPDATE: George Hill is giving it a go and will start for the Pacers.

Meanwhile the Rockets are feeling pretty good about themselves, riding a three-game winning streak after beating the San Antonio Spurs on Sunday. James Harden and his 26.3 points per game remains the primary focus for the Pacers.

Paul George did a nice job of making Harden work when the Pacers beat the Rockets in Indy back in mid-January. Harden is among the league leaders in points per shot (1.55), but caught the "PG disease" at the Fieldhouse when he needed 19 shots to score his 17 points. Hopefully, George can step up to the challenge on the road to keep Harden from feasting on buckets.
