Led by rookies Bennedict Mathurin and Andrew Nembhard, the Indiana Pacers got back into the winning column on Wednesday after completing a late fourth quarter comeback to trump the New York Knicks at home and climb to 2-1 in the preseason.

Now, the Pacers remain at the Gainbridge Fieldhouse to host the rebuilding Houston Rockets for their final preseason game. This should be an interesting test for the team, as the visitors are currently in the same direction with the Blue and Gold as a young squad looking to develop as a group in the upcoming 2022-23 season.

Also, this should be an opportunity for Indiana to polish its rotation and chemistry as they inch closer to the regular season, where they will kick things off in relatively easy manner.

Indiana Pacers vs Houston Rockets Prediction

With the coaching staff presumably trotting out a more conventional rotation for their preseason finale, to fully test things out before the regular season, expect the Pacers’ home court advantage to come out and push them to a win over the Rockets.
