Pacers, Rockets both jockeying for playoff position

The mad scramble for the fourth playoff seed in the Eastern Conference and the third seed in the West continues Wednesday afternoon when the Indiana Pacers face the Houston Rockets in the NBA bubble near Orlando.

The Pacers (43-28) will take the court one game behind fourth-seeded Miami (44-27) in the East with two to play. Indiana wraps up the regular season against the Heat on Friday afternoon. Miami also plays Wednesday, taking on Oklahoma City.

Finishing fourth or fifth means avoiding the top three teams in the East -- Milwaukee, Toronto and Boston -- in the first round of the playoffs. The fourth and fifth seeds will duel in Round 1.
