Things got tough for the Indiana Pacers, who appeared early in the third quarter en route to a convincing win, as they watched the Minnesota Timberwolves erase a 19-point deficit, creating an exciting game late. David West broke a 94-94 tie with a driving layup in the final minute, an Anthony Wiggins turnover giving Indiana the ball and the win.
C.J. Miles was a big catalyst for Indiana's success, scoring 28 points on 10-18 shooting, getting plenty of help from Roy Hibbert and David West, who each scored in double figures with 15 & 14 respectively. Donald Sloan and Luis Scola each reached double figures as well with 10. Mo Williams scored 24 to lead the Wolves as the Pacers snapped an eight game road losing streak.
