Houston Rockets's Latest Performance :
The Rockets have now won back-to-back games for the first time this season, they were able to pick up a win against the Bulls. James Harden in his return scoring 25 points with one rebound, seven assists, four steals, eight turnovers, and five 3-pointers in 33 minutes. The Houston Rockets are glad to have him back in the rotation as they struggled mightily on the offensive end with him being out because of a hammy injury. Clint Capela chipped in with a double-double of his own as he scored 12 points and grabbed 12 boards. Anthony continued the hot shooting he scored 17 points with seven rebounds and one 3-pointer. For the second night in a row, Anthony did close this game out with the Rockets holding a lead down the stretch. It is good to see that the Rockets are now finally winning games with the roster that they have. It will be a challenge for them going up against the Pacers but it will go down to the wire.
Indiana Pacers 's Latest Performance :
The Pacers have now won three straight games after taking down the Boston Celtics. Leading the way for the Pacers was Victor Oladipo as he hit the game-winning three to seal the game for the Pacers. He finished the game with 24 points and dished out 12 dimes. He scored 10 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter he was the closer that the Pacers needed against the Celtics. The Pacers did a great job of switching on defense not allowing the Celtics to get the mismatches that they wanted. The Pacers have won back-to-back games that are decided on game-winning shots they will be hoping that the game against the Rockets won’t go down to the wire because games like these can take a toll on you as the season progresses. Tyreke Evans scored 17 he is fitting in well with his new teammates this was his best home game of the season as he was able to help out Oladipo with the scoring load if he can be consistent the Pacers might have found another weapon off the bench.

Against The Spread Selection: Houston Rockets
My reason for the pick :
The Houston Rockets should be able to edge out the Pacers in this game as this game is expected to go down to the wire but the Rockets all-stars Harden and Paul will outplay Oladipo. Anthony will have another good game off the bench as he will continue his hot shooting against the Pacers. For the Pacers, it will be tough for Oladipo to carry the Pacers over the stacked Houston Rockets team alone. The Pacers are missing one player to become a real contender in the East.
