Pacers Down at the Half Against Minnesota 53-42 in Second Preseason Contest

Paul George (10 points) leads the way for the Indiana Pacers, who have struggled to contain the Minnesota Timberwolves at Bankers Life Fieldhouse in Indianapolis and trail 53-42. The Pacers led early with hot shooting, but stumbled back with poor team defense as the Wolves, led by Derrick Williams with 10 points, won the second quarter 25-13. George was the focus of Indiana's offense, going 5-15 shooting in the first half with five rebounds. David West made his preseason debut, scoring 8, with Ian Mahinmi putting up 6 of his own.

Other notables include D.J. Augustin with 5 assists and Orlando Johnson continuing his shooting woes as Ben Hansbrough and Gerald Green each totaled 5 points. For Minnesota, All-Star Kevin Love totaled 9 first quarter rebounds in his limited action. Roy Hibbert is out of tonight's game and Tyler Hansbrough didn't see any action in the first half.
