The Pacers will try to keep pacer with the Rockets on Sunday in an effort to win their third consecutive game.

The Pacers look to expand their two-game winning streak when they host the Rockets on Sunday evening.

After winning tough back-to-back games by gutting out a physical overtime win over the Kings on Friday, the Pacers will have to be ready to play a different style of game against the Rockets who won’t be pounding it into the paint, but instead pulling up from almost anywhere between the mid-court line and three-point arc.

With the Pacers’ propensity to give up threes, this could be a record night, at least for the Rockets three-point attempts. Hopefully, not for their makes. Houston will be playing the final game of a five-game road trip.

Kevin Seraphin (knee) remains questionable and Rodney Stuckey (hammy) is still out. Local legend, Eric Gordon (lower back) is also questionable for the Rockets after missing the past two games.
