Indiana Pacers @ Minnesota Timberwolves
Friday, January 8
8:00 PM EST
Granger’s back (says Mike Wells).
The Pacers destroyed Minnesota just a couple of days ago as Roy Hibbert embarrassed 10,000 lakes and Luther Head dropped 20+ points in his second straight game (which turned out to be the second of four games where he scored 18 or more).
So there’s not really a ton to go over that we don’t already know. The Wolves have only played one game since then and they lost to the Warriors. At home. The Pacers had that embarrassing 43-point loss in Madison Square, but they got back on track against Orlando. And now they have Danny and Troy Murphy back.
So, ya know what that means?
Thank God It’s Wolf-Murdering Friday.
(I’m not going to bother to copy over all the stats for this one. The rankings haven’t changed much in a week, so if you care to see just how bad both teams are in numeric terms, just check the post from last Saturday. In fact, if you missed it, you should actually check it out since it has a pretty good “State of the Wolves Q&A” with Zach Harper, who knows more about Minny’s sad, sad squad than most.)
