The Pacers (26-15) host the Timberwolves (15-25) on Friday night after beating the T’Wolves, 104-99 on Wednesday in Minneapolis.

The Pacers had to rally in the second half and play well down the stretch (check and check) to earn the road win. Much has changed for Minnesota after their one day off. For starters, reserve point guard Jeff Teague was dealt to Atlanta for shooting guard Allan Crabbe. Also, a report that Minny is going after D’Angelo Russell means a few players have to be looking around the locker room wondering who may be dealt.

Karl-Anthony Towns remains questionable which is the biggest question mark for the T’Wolves. As for the Pacers, they are healthy and trying to win their fourth game before heading out on the road for their next five games.
