Game Day: Wolves at Indiana

  • Updated: April 15, 2012 - 8:50 PM

Preview: These Pacers are primed for the playoffs: They have won four consecutive, eight of nine and 15 of their past 21 after winning 105-99 at Milwaukee on Saturday night. Big Roy Hibbert had 23 points, 14 rebounds and made six big free throws down the stretch in that one. ... At 38-22, they're third in the Eastern Conference playoff race. ... The Pacers have won five of the past eight meetings between the teams and are aiming for the first two-game series sweep since 2003. They won 109-99 at Target Center on Feb. 1 in another physical game between the teams. ... The Wolves have lost nine consecutive games and their past 25 April games dating to 2009.

Players to watch: Pacers forward Danny Granger has scored 18 or more points in his past 11 games. He scored a season-high 36 points, including 29 in the second half of that Feb. 1 game at Target Center. He has started all but two of the Pacers' 60 games. In fact, while the injury-ravaged Wolves have used 14 different starting lineups, the Pacers have used only three starting lineups all season.

Injuries: Wolves F Kevin Love (concussion, strained neck), G Luke Ridnour (sprained ankle), C Darko Milicic (hamstring) and G Ricky Rubio (knee surgery) did not travel with the team to Indiana and are out. Pacers starting PG Darren Collison has missed the past four games because of a sore groin and is listed as out on a day-to-day basis.
