The Pacers begin back-to-back roadies with their annual trip to Minnesota.

The Indiana Pacers remain on the road going from the sunshine on South Beach to a chill in the air in Minneapolis where they will face the Timberwolves for the first of two meetings this season.

The Pacers remain without Myles Turner as Nate McMillan continues to work through lineup combinations to find which players work well together on the court. In Miami, a three-guard lineup with Darren Collison, Victor Oladipo and Cory Joseph played the final six minutes at plus-eight to make a late run at a win.

Minnesota has a revamped and quite solid lineup around their two young talents, Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins. Both are off to nice starts thanks to the support of veterans Jeff Teague, Jimmy Butler and Taj Gibson in the starting lineup.
