Pacers Host Timberwolves Tonight

Last updated on Friday, October 19, 2007

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) - The Indiana Pacers wrap up the home portion of their preseason schedule tonight when they host the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Indiana remained perfect with a 122-115 win over the Memphis Grizzlies Wednesday night at Conseco Fieldhouse.

Marquis Daniels led five Pacers in double figures with 24 points. Jermaine O'Neal chipped in with a double-double, adding 22 points and a game-high eleven rebounds.

The Pacers are 4-and-0 in exhibitions under new head coach Jim O'Brien. Indiana is in the middle of a stretch of three games in four nights and O'Brien has talked about giving some of the players nights off to keep them fresh.

Tonight's game is the first of a back-to-back as the blue-and-gold will head to Chicago afterwards to face the bulls on Saturday night. Following that game, the Pacers wind up the preseason with road games at Minnesota and at Memphis next week.

The regular season begins on October 31st when Indiana hosts the Washington Wizards.
