Halftime score: Timberwolves lead Pacers 52-39

The bright side of things is that the Indiana Pacers sliced into a 20-point Minnesota Timberwolves lead to trail by 13 at the half, but the fact they were down 20 to begin with and allowed Minnesota to finish the half on an 8-2 run spells out trouble for the Pacers, who shot just 39% in the first half, attempting just two free throws (and missing both of them). The Timberwolves have lit up the Pacers in transition, outscoring Indiana 12-2 and forcing 13 Indiana turnovers in the first half.

Paul George has 15 to lead the Pacers on 6-10 shooting, but hasn't gotten consistent help from the rest of the starters, who are just 7-23 for 14 points. Kevin Love had a first half double double with 19 points and 11 rebounds. The Wolves are shooting 47% and have gotten to the line 14 times (though they're only 7-14). Indiana continues to struggle in the second half of back-to-backs, and will need to turn the game around if they hope to pull out a road win.
