Pacers 122, Wolves 115: A Glass Case of Emotion!

New, comments

NORTHEAST, MINNEAPOLIS — A roller coaster season of emotions has taken its toll on the rightfully impatient passengers.

Nobody wants to drink warm milk in a hot phone booth anymore, except that’s exactly the uncomfortable position we’re currently in. There’s only one drink on the menu.

Yes, that’s marrying two different scenes from Anchorman as a lede that might not make sense. I guess that’s what we’re serving at Denny’s in Bloomington* tonight.

Wolves tumbled again on the road, fighting admirably most of the night before losing control late. KAT was sensational again, putting up 23 points, 7 rebounds, and two dimes in the first quarter in Indy. He continued to dominate throughout the game, balling at such a ridiculously high level as an unstoppable offensive force. That was the highest scoring quarter of Towns’ career. But of course, his 42/17 wasn’t enough.

WOLVES BOX SCORE

Bojan Bogdanovic (37/6/4) was unguardable for the Pacers. The point guards Darren Collison (8/9/7) and Cory Joseph (8/12/5) shred the Wolves, who fought hard on the back-to-back (Pacers were also on the b2b flying from Dallas) but once again faltered in crunch time. My son T.J. Leaf had 18 points.
