The Indiana Pacers showed a total team effort in a big road win against the Minnesota Timberwolves, snapping their two game skid to move back to .500. Indiana overcame a five point deficit in the third, closing the quarter on a 24-5 run to put them in the lead for good.
The Pacers had a franchise record shooting night, finishing 66.7% thanks to big efforts from new faces. They were led by a 28 point night from Victor Oladipo, who was 11-16 from the floor. Cory Joseph scored 21 off the bench, hitting five of Indiana’s 10 threes on the night.
Bojan Bogdanovic had his best performance in the young season, with 19 points while Darren Collison pieced together a 15 point, 16 assist double double (all with one turnover). Domantas Sabonis continued to impress in his starting role, with a 15 point, 11 rebound double double of his own.
The Pacers dominated much of the game, outrebounding Minnesota by 15, and getting out and running, outscoring the Wolves 18-6 in fast break points. This was a real feel-good win for the Pacers, who will tip off tomorrow night in Oklahoma City against the Thunder.
