Coming off a big win over the Grizzlies on Saturday, the Rockets are faced with a back to back on Sunday against the Indiana Pacers. I’ll be in attendance live, and with the Rockets tired; I expect a ton of offense and not a lot of defense from either side.

Rockets vs. Pacers

Houston didn’t necessarily play great defense on Saturday night, but they held the Grizzlies to 96 points at home. Now they travel on the road to Indiana, against a Pacers team that has the firepower to win this game. Houston will likely try to outscore this young Pacers team, but that may not prove very easy.

Indiana has a lot of players capable of going into double figures. All five of their starters, plus two or three of their bench players can snap for 10-to-20 points on any given night, and playing at home against the Rockets will help that.

The Pacers already play at the league’s fastest pace of more than 100 possessions per game, and while Houston isn’t that fast, they should gladly match pace with Indiana in this one.

The Rockets’ offense is scoring almost 113 points per 100 possessions, and I see them with at least 115 in this one. The Pacers defense is allowing over 108 points per 100 possessions, and with the Rockets tired, I expect Indiana to come with it here tonight.

Houston is coming in cashing the over in five of their last six games, and while Indiana is only 2-3 cashing the over at home this season, they dropped 120 and 117 points against the Rockets last season. I see a similar line from them tonight, so add the over to your NBA Picks.
