In a first half not known for its defense, the Minnesota Timberwolves managed to erase an opening 10-0 deficit to tie the game at 54 a piece before the Indiana Pacers closed the half on an 8-0 run. The offense for the Pacers was lights out, shooting 54.8%, but have struggled a bit from the free throw line, having missed seven of their 19 attempts. The Pacers have, at least from a statistical angle, every advantage possible, but Minnesota has held close due to their own impressive shooting, finishing the half just over 54%, making defense seem entirely optional for both clubs.

Roy Hibbert has been every bit a seven foot center tonight, scoring 17 points, with seven boards, five on the offensive end. Hibbert has thrived on put backs, going 6-8 from the floor. George Hill has nine. Three Timberwolves are in double figures, led by Luke Ridnour with 13. Ricky Rubio has 11 points and six assists.
