As mentioned in the game preview, the Wolves are in search of their first four-game winning streak since 2012. Even more interesting is this stat via Timberwolves PR:

The Wolves have clearly been playing better as of late, and have the record to show for it:

As for the Pacers, they have lost their last three games, including losses against the Lakers and Knicks. As for injuries, Aaron Brooks (knee) and Monta Ellis (ankle) are PROBABLE while Rodney Stuckey (hamstring) is OUT. On the Wolves side, you guessed it: no Pekovic (ankle).
