Wolves aiming to build on dramatic finish at OKC
Preview: Andrew Wiggins’ 30-foot, three-point winner at the buzzer Sunday in Oklahoma City is the 16th time in franchise history that the Wolves won a game by scoring the deciding points as time expired. It’s the fourth time they turned a loss into victory. Wiggins has two of those four shots, including one against Phoenix in January. Kevin Garnett in 2007 and Malik Sealy (2000) made the other two winners. Overall, the Wolves have won in the closing moments 28 times and three of those were all three times the Wolves have won in Oklahoma City (3-15 all time). … The Pacers are 1-2, after an opening victory over Brooklyn and then a home loss to Portland and a road loss at Miami. Their 140-131 victory over the Nets was the fifth time in the past 25 years that they reached 140 points.
Players to watch: Wiggins’ 27-point, seven-rebound game in Sunday’s victory at OKC was his second game-winner and the 139th 20-point game of his young career. He’s fourth on the Wolves’ all-time list, one game behind Tony Campbell’s 140. Kevin Garnett’s 534 and Kevin Love’s 167 top the list. … The Pacers have committed 14 or fewer turnovers in each of their first three games and are second in the league in fewest turnovers with 12.3 a game. Veteran point guard Darren Collison — who replaced Jeff Teague after he signed last summer with the Wolves — has 23 assists and five turnovers in those three games.
Injuries: Pacers C Myles Turner (concussion, sore neck), former Wolf Glenn Robinson III (ankle surgery) and Edmond Sumner (knee surgery) all are out. So, too, is Wolves rookie C Justin Patton (foot).
