(Indianapolis, IN) - Roy Hibbert scored a season-high 28-points in leading the Indiana Pacers over the Houston Rockets, 100-91 at Toyota Center in Houston.
The 7'2 center added 13 rebounds and three blocks during Indiana's first of four games out West, and joined a defensive effort that muffled the league's highest scoring offense to a marginal 39-percent shooting effort from-the-floor.
Tyler Hansbrough had 16-points and eight-rebounds in place of David West, who missed his sixth consecutive contest at starting power forward with a lower back sprain.
Lance Stephenson returned to the lineup to score 21 points and George Hill scored 2 points in his first game back at starting point guard.
Both players sat out Monday's win over the Atlanta Hawks with injuries.
The Pacers are tied for the second best record in the East at 45-27 and continue their road trip tonight against the Dallas Mavericks.
