  • Karl-Anthony Towns Pacers Timberwolves

The Indiana Pacers edged the Timberwolves to grab a 116-114 win, their second against Minnesota in three days. Wiggins then missed a layup on a fast break and later turned the ball over when he was ruled out of bounds with 31 seconds to go.

That gave Brogdon a chance to break the tie.

And Napier hit nothing but air on another 3 on Minnesota's final shot of the game.

The All-Star center had a team-high 27 points in 28 minutes in his first game since December 13, and was still producing with 1:48 remaining when his two free throws pulled Minnesota into a 114-all tie.

He said the Timberwolves would limit Towns' minutes and closely monitor his fatigue level.

"Never like losing, but you can feel good about some things that we saw tonight", Minnesota coach Ryan Saunders said, via Fox Sports North. Domantas Sabonis led IN with 29 points, and Jarrett Culver led Minnesota with 17 points. They finished each of the first three periods with a six-point lead. Gorgui Dieng has averaged 8.4 rebounds and added 11.6 points per game over the last 10 games for Minnesota. Minnesota outscored IN for the first time all night, 21-17, but it was not enough to overcome the six-point deficit.

TOP PERFORMERS: Sabonis is averaging 18.1 points and 13.1 rebounds for the Pacers. Doug McDermott had 13 points and a season-high eight rebounds off the bench. IN has more than treaded water while waiting for the expected late January return of star guard Victor Oladipo, who ruptured a tendon in his right knee a year ago.
