The road Timberwolves come into this one off a 105-101 win at home over the Miami Heat. They entered that one as 8.5-point favorites and covered for the second time in as many outings.
The home Pacers come into this one off a 123-102 win at home over the Orlando magic. They entered that one as 7-point favorites and covered, just one game after beating the same Magic but failing to cover (-7.5) in a one-point SU win.
On the year, Minnesota is 6-11 against the spread, while Indiana is 11-5 ATS.
These two teams have not faced off yet during the 2022-23 season.
Minnesota’s offense is starting to click despite only scoring 105 points in their latest win. Over their last four, they’ve scored their top two season-highs on the year at 129 on the road against Cleveland and 126 on the road against Philadelphia.
On the year, Minnesota is scoring 114.3 points per contest, which puts the team in 12th as of this writing Saturday evening.
In terms of advanced stats, the Timberwolves score 109.4 points per 100 possessions. That number places them in 16th—a tie with the Philadelphia 76ers.
Defensively, this groups allows 114.4 points per night, putting them in 20th so far this season, which is a tie with the Atlanta Hawks.
Looking at Defensive Efficiency, Minnesota gives up 108.1 points per 100 possessions—a number that ranks 9th on the year.
On the injury report, Minnesota lists Kyle Anderson and Jordan McLaughlin as Day-to-Day.
The Pacers entered this season finally, in the eyes of many both locally and nationally, embracing a tank. Much of that had to do with a potential looming trade to send Myles Turner somewhere…anywhere. But a lot of it had to do with a lack of general direction.
Through 16 games, it’s unfair to say the direction of the franchise at large is clear, but the direction of this season is clearly going toward—or at least aiming toward—the postseason and not the Draft Lottery.
On the year, the Pacers are scoring 116.8 points per game. That number puts them in 5th across the NBA so far this season.
Looking at the advanced stats, they’re scoring 111 points per 100 possessions—a number that puts them in 9th.

Free Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Indiana Pacers NBA Prediction:
Not only is this game set as a PICK spread by oddsmakers, ESPN’s Matchup Predictor also lists the Pacers as 50.5 percent favorites against the Timberwolves at 49.5 percent. That’s as slim a margin as you’ll find.
The Pacers’ home-court edge has to mean something here, but Indy also looks like it’s found more sustainable improvements early in the year.
I like Indy in this one by a slightly wider margin than most might expect.
