The Indiana Pacers look for their third win in a row when they visit the Minnesota Timberwolves at the Target Center.

The teams split their two games last year but the Pacers played arguably their worst game of the year after Frank Vogel took over at Minnesota in the midst of a six-game losing streak. The Wolves have weapons that can cause the Pacers problems and with rookie Ricky Rubio added to the mix this year the Pacers defense will be put to the test.

The Pacers will be without George Hill, so hopefully Rubio doesn't lure Lance Stephenson into a no-look passing game of anything you can do I can do better. Although, as long as the Pacers win that could be pretty entertaining. Jeff Foster was ruled out last night and is listed as day-to-day in Minnesota so I'll take that as some good news.

Here is the preview. For a Minnesota perspective, check out Canis Hoopus. Also, after the game check out Pacers Overtime on WIBC 93.1FM with Eddie White. Need to have an Indy Cornrows mention on the show!
