PLAYOFF-BOUND 1. Miami 2012-13 finish: 66-16. Coming: Michael Beasley, Greg Oden. Going: Mike Miller, Juwan Howard.

The Indiana Pacers, who took the two-time reigning NBA champion Miami Heat to seven games in the Eastern Conference finals last spring, are fortifying their front line by trading for versatile and durable big man Luis Scola of the Phoenix Suns. Scola, a 6-foot-9 power forward, would be added to a lineup that includes a budding star in 7-2 center Roy Hibbert and a former All-Star in 6-9 power forward David West. [ Update, 12:35 p.m. : The Pacers are sending 6-8 guard-forward Gerald Green, 6-11 forward Miles Plumlee and a conditional 2014 first-round draft pick to Phoenix for Scola, a sixth-year player from Argentina who has appeared in 82 games in four seasons and all 66 in a lockout-shortened season.]

Houston at Lakers, tonight, 6:30, Fox Sports West What do the Lakers' first four opponents have in common? None was over .500. If it's time for a bigger test, they're in luck, with the Houston Rockets here tonight. Challengers don't come much bigger with 7-6 Yao Ming, left, 6-7 260-pound Ron Artest and a sturdy supporting cast that includes physical players Luis Scola and Carl Landry. The X factor is Tracy McGrady, coming off arthroscopic knee surgery that limited him to 12 minutes in the preseason, obliging the Rockets to learn to play together as they go. This is the third of a five-game trip for the Rockets that began, agonizingly enough, when Portland's Brandon Roy beat them with a 30-foot three-pointer at the buzzer.

Below are five things to watch when Team USA plays Argentina in the London Olympics semifinals Friday at 1 p.m. 1. Expect a chippy affair. To get ready for this one, Team USA forward Carmelo Anthony might want to wear a cup after Argentina guard Facundo Campazzo punched him in the groin on a three-point attempt when the two teams met in preliminary round play earlier this week. Campazzo might want his own protection, too. He contended Team USA guard Chris Paul was too physical with him. Kobe Bryant scolded Campazzo for the dirty play afterward.

Slowly and deliberately, Lamar Odom bent over and put his clothes on, quietly announcing that he was famished after the game. His back was sore from so much heavy lifting for the Lakers. He was happy with how he played, for the most part, but still upset that his defense was not up to par. All in all, Odom was satisfied with his performance and with that of the Lakers during a 114-106 overtime win over the stubborn Houston Rockets Tuesday night. "I need something to eat," Odom said.

The Houston Rockets were the Western Conference's best team in terms of opponents' field-goal percentage and rebound differential, and they finished atop the league in points allowed per shot. In short, finding any breathing room against the Rockets last season was a colossal pain in the [you know where]. Adding Ron Artest will only make Houston stronger defending its net. Just as the Lakers can field a great deal of different lineup combinations, so too will Houston have plenty of ways to align stalwart defenders like Artest and Shane Battier, supported by bruisers like Luis Scola, Carl Landry, and Chuck Hayes.

Tracy McGrady sank a three-pointer in his season debut, Luis Scola and Aaron Brooks scored 23 points apiece and the Houston Rockets defeated Detroit, 107-96, ending the Pistons' five-game winning streak. Rookie Chase Budinger had 16 points and 12 rebounds in his first start for the Rockets, who shot a season-high 54.7% from the field. Trevor Ariza served a one-game suspension and that gave Coach Rick Adelman a chance to start Budinger and bring McGrady off the bench for his first action since Feb. 9. The seven-time All-Star entered at the 7:44 mark of the first quarter and missed his first shot, a 20-footer from the wing.
