Open Game Thread #69: Pacers vs. Timberwolves

New, comments

The Pacers will try to win three in a row and avenge an ugly loss from earlier in the season when they host the Minnesota Timberwolves tonight at the Fieldhouse. Should the Pacers win tonight and then win the other 13 remaining games, they will finish the season at .500. It could happen.

Here's Bruno's Scouting Report which looks at Shawne Williams finding his way back into the playing rotation and trying to build on his strong performance against Charlotte. It appears that Danny Granger will likely sit this one out, so Shawne will be needed. Of course, Stephen Graham would be a good choice, too. Right? Anyone?

Check out TWolves Blog for the Minnesota perspective.

Here's what the efficiency numbers say:

Team Pace Off.Eff. Def.Eff.
IND 96.1(3rd) 107.1(19th) 109.2(16th)
MIN 90.5(13th) 103.4(27th) 112.2(27th)
