The Pacers face off against the Timberwolves for the first time this season on Wednesday night from the Target Center. The Pacers sit at .500 and dropped an overtime heartbreaker to the Bulls on Monday, after winning two in a row prior against the Pistons and Hawks. The Timberwolves are still working to finding answers on both sides of the ball, having lost nine of their last twelve games, but did win over the weekend against the Raptors, and hung around with the Lakers last night. As Karl-Anthony Towns gets back into form after missing time due to COVID, and the Pacers continue to deal with life without Caris LeVert and T.J. Warren.
If the Pacers look to win their third game in the last four, they will need Malcolm Brogden and Damontas Sabonis to continue to be leaders and put pressure on a struggling Timberwolves defense. Brogden and Sabonis have both been playing at an All-Star level this year and showed that on Monday when both recorded double-doubles. Brogden scored 23 points while pulling down 15 rebounds and Sabonis scored 25 points to go along with 10 rebounds.
The Pacers will have a depleted roster once again as Caris LeVert (kidney issue) and T.J. Warren (foot) continue to remain out, while Doug McDermott could miss a second straight game as well. Indiana will need Lamb, Turner, and McConnell to step up once again to provide some much needed depth production.
Minnesota began their offseason heading into this year with the #1 overall pick which they used on Anthony Edwards in an other words weak draft class. By the looks of things so far they will have a great chance to make it back to back years at the top of the draft board as they are currently 7-21 which is the worst in the entire NBA. The teams production can’t solely be placed on the players as they have dealt with injuries including to superstars Karl-Anthony Towns (COVID) who missed 15 games early in the year and now D’Angelo Russell (knee) who has been out since February 10th and will remain out another 4-6 weeks after undergoing a surgery on his knee to remove loose bodies that have been hampering him all season.
Malik Beasley has seen a boom in his play as he has jumped from his 9.6 points per game career average all the way to 20.9 points per game this season. Anthony Edwards hasn’t had a superb season as many now expect to be the norm for a #1 overall pick but he is averaging 14.3 points, 3.5 rebounds and 2.2 assists per game. He just exploded for 28 points in last nights loss to the Los Angeles Lakers.

Free Indiana Pacers vs Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction
Brogden and Sabonis are both playing at an All-Star level and the Pacers have the support in place around them to win against the Timberwolves. Minnesota is young and continues to try to find production from their bench whereas Indiana is a deeper team. The Timberwolves are also coming in on a back to back and should be the more fatigued team in this matchup.
