Streaking Pacers to test Rockets' improving defense

The Rockets had talked up their defensive improvement for more than a week prior to Wednesday but, considering the quality of their previous opponents, that chatter rang hollow.

Following their gritty 102-93 win against the Los Angeles Clippers, the Rockets collectively had reason to puff their chests.

The Clippers were by far the toughest foe during the Rockets' recent stretch of defensive advancement. After earning their first win against a team with a winning record, Houston will try to maintain that level of defensive focus when the Indiana Pacers visit Toyota Center on Friday.
