The Pacers return to the road for the first of three away from home when they visit the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night.
The blue and gold will try to bounce back after running out of buckets in the fourth quarter of their loss to the Clippers on Tuesday night. Doug McDermott left the game early and remains questionable, along with Myles Turner, with ankle sprains.
The Rockets are in full draft lottery mode, having lost eight of their last nine games while altering the roster for the future at the trade deadline. They still have individual players who can get loose, including reclamation project Kevin Porter Jr. and the Pacers will likely have to keep their high-scoring approach of late to leave H-Town with a W.
