Late Push Puts Pacers Over Bucks

(INDIANAPOLIS, IN) – Bojan Bogdanovic scored a season-high 37 points as the Indiana Pacers topped the Minnesota Timberwolves 122-115 to snap a two-game skid.

The Pacers needed every point out of Bogdanovic to overcome Karl-Anthony Towns’ big night as he led all scorers with 42 points and 17 rebounds. Towns dominated from the beginning as he had 23 points and seven rebounds in the first quarter alone.
The Pacers once again were short-handed as Domantas Sabonis and Tyreke Evans missed the game but Indiana got contributions from the bench as T.J. Leaf scored 18 points, Kyle O’Quinn had 10 and Doug McDermott added 9.
“All we need is who we’ve got in the locker room,” Pacers coach Nate McMillan said. “We’ve been adapting, really, all season long with guys being out. Our coaches do a good job of getting guys ready to play, and they’ve been able to step in and win games.”
The Pacers will continue their three-game homestand on Saturday when they host the Orlando Magic.
