KEY GAME INFORMATION
INDIANA: GUARDS: The Pacers went 7-2 during the regular season and won a playoff series with GEORGE HILL in the starting five. He averaged 13.9 PPG and 5.3 APG in those regular season starts . . . PAUL GEORGE is a defensive stopper who is making strides on the offensive end. If he can find the touches, his scoring average will rise . . . D.J. AUGUSTIN has a skill set similar to Hill's. Maybe he'll push him for minutes later in the year, but more likely he'll shoot corner threes off the bench . . . GERALD GREEN is another athlete for their second unit . . . LANCE STEPHENSON has a chance for a bigger role, but he's been atrocious to this point of his career. FORWARDS: DANNY GRANGER's touches dropped last season, but his shot selection improved as last year went on. He'll continue to be a borderline All-Star . . . DAVID WEST's knee should be fully recovered from his torn ACL in late 2010-11. He was their best player in the postseason and should be a star this season with his ability to knock down shots . . . TYLER HANSBROUGH looks like he's settling in as a career second unit player. His lack of athleticism really limits his upside . . . JEFF PENDERGRAPH may or may not hold on to a roster spot in a 12th-man role. CENTERS: They're paying ROY HIBBERT like a franchise player, and he has the ability to control both ends of the court. The question is whether they'll now play him 30-plus minutes, or continue to use him as more of a part-time player . . . IAN MAHINMI should step in as a decent backup center . . . Rookie MILES PLUMLEE was a part-time player at Duke and is highly unlikely to contribute in his first season.
HOUSTON: GUARDS: Houston has gutted its roster, and this is JEREMY LIN's team now. Coach Kevin McHale will use the same pick-and-roll offense he used with Goran Dragic, and Lin should do what he did in New York a year ago . . . KEVIN MARTIN is on the trade block. As long as he's in Houston, he'll be in and out of McHale's doghouse, especially seeing that he's not in the long-term plans . . . JEREMY LAMB should push Martin for minutes early. Lamb will have some defensive issues, but he's a cagey scorer who should mesh well with Lin . . . CARLOS DELFINO replaces Chase Budinger as the team's most reliable marksman from three-point range . . . TONEY DOUGLAS' defensive ability puts him in the running for a rotation spot . . . SHAUN LIVINGSTON can give them 12 to 15 minutes a night . . . Rookie SCOTT MACHADO, an outstanding passer, will back up Lin . . . GARY FORBES will have trouble finding minutes. FORWARDS: CHANDLER PARSONS was a nice surprise a year ago. He's a fifth option offensively but does the hustle/energy thing well . . . 2011 first-rounder DONATAS MOTIEJUNAS is a skilled 7-footer who fits with Lin. Expect him to grab a starting job by midseason, but he can also play center when required . . . This might be the year PATRICK PATTERSON makes an impact. His game is limited, but he can rebound and score around the basket . . . ROYCE WHITE is a 270-pounder with point guard skills. He needs the ball in his hands though, which is why he's not a great fit with Lin in the starting lineup . . . TERRENCE JONES has a tweener skill set. At this point, he's better suited for the second unit . . . Speaking of 'tweeners, MARCUS MORRIS looks to be nowhere near contributing. CENTERS: OMER ASIK earned his reputation as a defensive stud in Chicago, and he'll get a little more offensive freedom in Houston. He is quite foul-prone though, and he'll be tested on the free-throw line early and often . . . His backup, GREG SMITH, has more fouls (17) than points (14) in his 69-minute NBA career.

*Pacers-Rockets Preview* ========================

By MATT BEARDMORE STATS Writer

Indiana (44-27) at Houston (39-31), 8:00 p.m. EDT

There is no question that the Indiana Pacers are one of the league's deepest teams, but the Central Division leaders would prefer to have their entire roster available at once.

They could move closer to full strength Wednesday night if Lance Stephenson and David West return for the start of a four-game trip that kicks off against a resurgent Houston Rockets team.

Without Stephenson (strained right hip flexor), point guard George Hill (strained left groin), Danny Granger (sore left knee) and West (sprained lower back), Indiana (44-27) rebounded from Saturday's 87-84 loss at Chicago with a 100-94 victory over Atlanta on Monday.

Starting for the first time since Dec. 15, Gerald Green led six Pacers in double figures with 19 points - 17 in the second half - to help Indiana move closer to its first division title since 2003-04.

"I feel good about our depth," coach Frank Vogel said. "If a guy goes down, it won't be the end of the world for us."

That may be true, but Indiana could use all the healthy bodies it can get as it's percentage points behind New York for the second seed in the Eastern Conference.

Vogel said on Tuesday that Stephenson will probably the Rockets, while West could return after missing the last five games. Granger and Hill might see action on Thursday versus Dallas.

Losers of three of four on the road, the Pacers will get their second look at the Rockets (39-31) this season after defeating them 105-95 on Jan. 18. Paul George had 31 points, six rebounds, five steals and three assists to go with his seven 3-pointers.

"Offensively, he's so talented," Rockets forward Chandler Parsons told the team's official website. "He can shoot the ball, he can handle it and he's a great player. I get hyped for every game but when you a guy like Paul, you definitely get more hyped, especially since he hit shots on me last game, you want to come in here and limit those."

Houston is not known for its defense - it's yielding 102.7 points per game - but the team has clamped down on that end during its season-high seven-game homestand, holding opponents to an average of 92.5 points. The Rockets are 5-1 during that stretch and are seventh in the West, 4 1/2 games ahead of the ninth seed. Houston's last playoff appearance came in 2008-09.

"We're growing," leading scorer James Harden said. "It took us some time, but we usually rely on our shots. If we're not making shots, we kind of give up on our defense. The last few weeks, it's been our defensive effort, holding teams down defensively and trying to get out and score our transition baskets."

Houston, which is 24-5 when limiting opponents to 101 points or less, is among the NBA's best with 18.4 fast-break points per game.

Harden, who is averaging a league-high 10.3 free-throw attempt, took just five on Jan. 18, hitting four. He also missed 14 of 19 field-goal attempts and finished with 17 points as his career-best streak of 22 straight games scoring 20 or more ended.

The Pacers, the league leader in field-goal defense at 41.4 percent, held the Rockets to 41.0 on Jan. 18.

Indiana has won two straight in this series and three of four in Houston following a 104-102 overtime victory on April 1.
