INDIANAPOLIS — For the second time in 48 hours, the Pacers and Timberwolves took it down to the wire with the same result — an Indiana win.
At Bankers Life Fieldhouse Friday, Malcolm Brogdon unlocked a tie with what turned out to be the winning basket with 18 seconds left in the game. The Pacers won it 116-114 for their fourth consecutive victory, including a 104-99 win at Minnesota Wednesday.
Indiana took a six point lead into the final quarter, but saw the Timberwolves go up by one with six minutes to play. The game remained close from there with Brogdon hitting the winner.
T.J Warren led Indiana with 28 points. The Pacers shot 56% for the game while holding Minnesota to 46%.
Indiana now goes on a five game road trip. Victor Oladipo, who has missed one year of action, says he'll be in the lineup when the Pacers host Chicago on January 29.
