Notebook: Rockets 112, Pacers 86


Matt Miller, for NBA.com
Posted Sat Mar 08, 2014 1:23 AM - Updated Sat Mar 08, 2014 1:23 AM

THE FACT: The Rockets have won a franchise-record 21 consecutive games when they score at least 100 points, topping the 20-game streak Houston strung together from Jan. 29-Nov. 9, 2007.

THE LEAD: The Rockets suffered their worst loss of the season in Indiana last December, so it was only fitting that they would turn the tables on the Pacers in a 112-86 rout on Friday at Toyota Center. James Harden led the way with 28 points, four assists and three steals. Dwight Howard added 15 points and seven rebounds for Houston (43-19), which has won a season-high seven consecutive home games and improved to a league-best 22-6 since Jan. 1.

David West scored 15 points and grabbed 10 rebounds to pace Indiana (46-16), which has lost three consecutive games for the first time this season and four of six on the road. Paul George, playing with a stiff back, finished with 13 points on 5-for-12 shooting and five boards.

QUOTABLE: "There are a lot of positive things happening. ... It's just us building and getting better. I really like what I see. I like it defensively. Everyone is on the same page. They are talking it out, and the guys are doing their job of just playing together."
-- Houston coach Kevin McHale

THE STAT: With Indiana riding its first three-game skid of the season, the Rockets and Clippers are the only remaining squads to not drop three straight this season.

TURNING POINT: The Pacers had cut a 16-point first-half deficit to 50-47 early in the third quarter after George scored on Indiana's first two possessions of the period. Houston's defense took charge from there, holding the Pacers scoreless on 10 of their next 12 possessions while the Rockets ripped off a 23-3 run that gave them a 73-50 lead.

QUOTABLE II: "We're not the same team. ... I feel like now we're at that point where we're letting teams do what they want to do and not imposing our will. ... We still have 20-something games to fix it, but the fix has to come immediately."
-- Indiana guard George Hill

HOT: Harden, who was averaging 17.0 points on 24.6 percent shooting against the Pacers as a member of the Rockets entering Friday, delivered by far his most impressive performance against Indiana since arriving in Houston. The 6-foot-5 guard spearheaded the Rockets' third-quarter outburst with 16 points on 6-for-8 shooting, including 3-for-4 shooting from behind the arc, in the period and went on to record the highest-scoring effort against the Pacers of his career.

NOT: Indiana, which entered Friday averaging an NBA-high 4.8 points more than its opponents during the third period, was dominated 38-16 in the third as it watched Houston run away with this one.

GOOD MOVE: The Rockets displayed arguably their best ball movement in the half-court of the season, handing out 24 assists on 33 field goals over the first three quarters. Houston rose to the challenge against the Pacers' top-ranked defense and made the extra pass to turn good looks into great ones, leaving the Pacers' defense a step behind throughout the contest.

BAD MOVE: A chippy game briefly took a turn for the worse in the third period when Evan Turner and Harden got into an altercation under the basket across from the Pacers' bench. The pair got in each other's faces after Turner shoved Harden in frustration, instigating a mild shoving match between other players on the court. Harden and Turner were assessed double-technical fouls, while Indiana seemed to become increasingly unhinged as it watched its deficit grow beyond 30.

NOTABLE: Pacers reserve guard C.J. Watson missed his second straight game with a sprained right elbow. ... Rockets guard Patrick Beverley, who suffered a broken nose during Wednesday's win at Orlando, wore a clear protective mask on his face. ... The Pacers' Roy Hibbert, who grabbed three rebounds, will surpass 3,000 for his career with his next board. ... Houston is now 14-0 at home this season against Eastern Conference competition and can wrap up a perfect season at Toyota Center against the East with a victory over Philadelphia on March 27. ... This is the Rockets' first victory over Indiana in four attempts since acquiring Harden. ... Indiana's last six opponents have shot a combined 57-for-125 (46.4 percent) from 3-point range. ... Houston has shot 50.0 percent or higher from the field 26 times this season, the most by a Rockets team since 1994-95. ... Houston improved to 17-0 at home when it scores at least 107. ... Brian Ching, who made 45 appearances with the United States men's national soccer team and won two MLS cups with the Houston Dynamo, was in attendance.

UP NEXT: For the Pacers: Sunday @ Dallas, Tuesday vs. Boston, Friday @ Philadelphia. For the Rockets: Sunday vs. Portland, Tuesday @ Oklahoma City, Thursday @ Chicago.
