Houston currently owns the seventh seed in the Western Conference, but only one and a half games separate Houston from the Utah Jazz -- who are currently on the outside of the playoff picture. Needless to say, the Rockets need to have a strong April in order to make the playoffs.
Hosting the Pacers, who are currently the fifth seed in the Eastern Conference playoff picture, is just the beginning of a tough week for Kevin McHale's Rockets. Houston will travel to Chicago to take on the Bulls on Monday before headed to Los Angeles on Friday to take on Kobe Bryant and the Lakers.
Televised coverage of Sunday night's game between the Rockets and Pacers can be found locally on Fox Sports Houston. Radio coverage can be found on 610am, 96.5FM and 850am.
