(MINNEAPOLIS, MN) - The Indiana Pacers will try to maintain their recent hot streak tonight when they face the Minnesota Timberwolves in Minneapolis.
The Pacers have won three in a row to improve to 14-and-12. It is the first time the Pacers have been more than a game over .500 since opening the season with three-straight victories.
The Timberwolves are having an abysmal season with an NBA worst 3-and-21 record. Minnesota has lost its last six in a row and are a woeful 2-and-10 at the Target Center this season.
Pacers center David Harrison did not make the trip to Minneapolis with the team. Harrison played just five minutes in Wednesday night's win over Philadelphia before leaving the game with back spasms.
Ike Diogu, who returned from a torn calf muscle three games ago, will serve as Jeff Foster's backup tonight.
