The Indiana Pacers host the make-shift Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. The Wolves are down four key players including Kevin Love and Ricky Rubio which has put a damper on the end of a once-promising season.
While the Pacers are 8-1 in April, Minnesota is 0 for April and losers of nine straight games heading into the opening tip tonight. With a game in Philadelphia on Tuesday, the Pacers need to come out focused and make sure everyone gets a little run tonight to stay fresh for the second half of the back-to-back.
Here is the Pacers.com 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!
