Last updated on Thursday, November 30, 2017

(HOUSTON, TX) - The Pacers kept it close in the first half but the Rockets pulled away in the third quarter as Houston routed Indiana 118-97.

James Harden led the Rockets with 29 points as six players scored in double figures. Houston also knocked down eighteen 3-pointers and outrebounded the Pacers 49-36. Clint Capela added a 22 point and 13 rebound double-double as Houston won their sixth straight game.

Thaddeus Young led the Pacers with 23 points while Myles Turner had a 15 point and 10 rebound double-double. Victor Oladipo added 19 points but the Blue & Gold couldn't compete against Houston's hot shooting.

"They got some threes in transition," Pacers point guard Darren Collison said. "We kind of lost sight of their shooters at times.... I thought we played hard for the most part, but it didn't stick for all four quarters."

The Pacers get back to wrap up their brief two-game road trip on Friday when they visit the Toronto Raptors.
