NBA RESTART PLAYOFFS Pacers to face Heat; Clippers battle Mavs
Sixers, Celtics set up first-round clash

MIAMI (AFP) — Myles Turner and Justin Holiday scored 18 points apiece as the Indiana Pacers withstood a 45point performance from Houston star James Harden Wednesday in a 108-104 NBA victory over the Rockets.

The Pacers snapped a five-game losing streak against the Rockets — who announced before the game that star guard Russell Westbrook was nursing a quadriceps strain that could jeopardize his appearance in the playoffs.

Harden did what he could to fill the void, contributing 11 of 14 Rockets points in a late-game surge that saw Houston cut a 104-90 deficit to 106-104 with 27 seconds remaining.
