Pacers Bounce Back With Win Over Timberwolves

Russell Westbrook racks up 45 points as Oklahoma City Thunder win in NBA

Russell Westbrook racks up 45 points as Oklahoma City Thunder win in NBA

They came back from a 22-point deficit in Sacramento last week, and chose to do it again on Friday at Bankers Life Fieldhouse.

Collison scored 15 first-half points, and Cousins added 14 points and nine rebounds for the Kings. The Kings have lost six of eight.

George made six free throws during the final 2:30 to force overtime tied at 104.

Indiana Pacers forward Paul George and Brownsburg native Gordon Hayward have been named NBA All-Stars.

Sacramento appeared to be cruising when it extended a 64-55 halftime lead to 78-62 midway through the third quarter and still led 98-87 with 6:33 left in regulation.

The tweet was immediately removed and Katie was subsequently suspended from the long-running comedy show indefinitely. She has since wiped her website and cleared her social media pages except for one tweet apologizing for her words.

"Anytime you get named to the All-Star team, it's a big honor personally but something I share with the entire organization, especially my coaches and teammates", said George.

Westbrook, who is leading the National Basketball Association scoring charts this season, added 45 more to his total as his side won for a third game on the spin. IN did convert 10 Sacramento turnovers into 12 points. IN was 10 of 28 on 3s and is 12-6 when making at least 10 in a game this season.

The Pacers were just 1-7 on the second night of a back-to-back coming into this game, so they'll take the win in this situation no matter how it happened.
