[MINNESOTA] — The Minnesota Timberwolves played host to the Indiana Pacers last night and the hometown crowd got exactly what they paid for in the form of a hard-fought 115 to 114 Wolves victory. The win bumps Minnesota's record up to 29-44 on the season, while the loss drags Indiana's down to 37-37. Though a win's a win and Timberwolves fans will settle for whatever they can get their hands on, there's plenty of room for improvement in the future. Games likes these are essential for any team with bigger aspirations.

An impressive performance from Karl-Anthony Towns led all players in the contest and his 37 points, 12 rebounds, 1 assists, 1 blocks and 1 steals in 41 minutes will make many-a-fantasy owner proud. Ask anybody, however - Towns included - and the most important part is that the Timberwolves walked away with the W. Each win adds up over the course of the season with the end goal being far more satisfying than a Tweetable stat line.

Though not quite able to steal the show, Paul George did a fine job leading his ultimately unsuccessful Pacers. George's 37 points, 7 rebounds and 2 assists were one bright spot for the team that spun out in the matchup.

Beyond any individual contributions, one of the major reasons why it was the Timberwolves walking away victorious was Minnesota's ability to limit Indiana's offensive output. By holding the Pacers to less than they usually produce the Timberwolves made their life considerably easier.

Up next for the reeling Wolves will be a date with the while the visiting Pacers will look to bounce back in a matchup with the .
