The Indiana Pacers remain in the mix for a playoff spot in the East even after dropping five games in a row. The quest continues on Monday night when the Houston Rockets visit Bankers Life Fieldhouse.
James Harden hasn't always enjoyed his visits to Indy but his normal host, Paul George won't be around to shadow his every move so slowing down the MVP candidate is going to be the main problem for the Pacers.
After watching the Nets torch the Fieldhouse nets, it is hard to imagine the Pacers slowing down Houston, but the NBA is a night-to-night affair so a different defensive disposition will help. If the Pacers can come up with the desired defensive effort then they just have to make some buckets.
