Rockets Vs. Pacers Final Score: Houston Falls 104-102 To Indiana In Overtime

The Houston Rockets had a 10-point after three quarters, but they blew that lead to head to overtime and ultimately lost to the Indiana Pacers 104-102. The Pacers made their comeback in the fourth quarter by going on a 12-2 run to tie the game at 83 with 4:48 to go.

The Pacers even led 93-91 with 10 seconds left but Goran Dragic made both of his free throws to tie the game and send it into overtime.

At the start of overtime the Rockets won the tip and did not convert, but when the Pacers went down on offense they held the ball for over one minute before scoring a basket. On that possession the Pacers had three offensive rebounds to keep the play alive.

That series of offensive rebounds nearly ended the game for the Rockets, because the Pacers went on an 8-2 run after that made basket by Darren Collison. The Rockets were able to get back within one point and they had the last possession to get the win, but Danny Granger blocked Chandler Parson's three-point attempt with 10 seconds left.

The loss moved the Rockets from a tie for the No. 7 spot with the Denver Nuggets to the No. 8 spot, and the gap between the Utah Jazz who are at No. 9 is now down to one game.
