The Indiana Pacers walked into Target Center with heavy legs Sunday night, playing the second game of a tough back-to-back that Antworten

MINNEAPOLIS - The Indiana Pacers walked into Target Center with heavy legs Sunday night, playing the second game of a tough back-to-back that started in Denver the night before. Clive Walford Jets Jersey .The young Minnesota Timberwolves were the ones who really looked tired to start, and the Pacers took advantage of open shot after open shot to build a big lead and hold on for the win.C.J. Miles scored 28 points and David West bulled his way to the basket for two big points with 34 seconds to play to help the Pacers to a 100-96 victory over the Timberwolves on Sunday night.Miles hit 10 of 18 shots and Roy Hibbert had 15 points, eight rebounds and four blocks for the Pacers, who got 48 points from their bench. They shot a season-high 50 per cent from the field and forced 16 turnovers to win for just the second time this month.You get that taste and then start to remember why we do the things we do every day, why we run the system, why we try to play and get the win, Miles said. Weve still got to believe in that stuff because as competitors we want to win every game, make everybody play, want to make every shot and you get impatient.Mo Williams had 24 points and 10 assists and Shabazz Muhammad added 21 points and six rebounds for the Timberwolves (5-21). They have lost 11 of their last 12 games.I told our guys what I was most disappointed in, and it was pointed at our young players, was I thought they had no energy to start the game, coach Flip Saunders said. When youre playing your young players and theyre playing that much and you have that many wasted minutes, youre going to struggle.West finished with 14 points on 7-for-9 shooting and Donald Sloan scored eight straight points for Indiana to start the fourth quarter while the Timberwolves charged back into the game.The Wolves missed 13 of their first 14 shots, but looked even worse on the defensive end where they allowed Indiana to shoot 55 per cent in the first half and build a 16-point lead.The Pacers led 61-42 early in the third quarter before the Wolves woke up. Muhammad scored eight straight during a 17-1 run that trimmed the deficit to three points and Williams hit a jumper to tie the game at 87 with 3:33 to play.Williams hit a jumper a minute later for a 92-91 lead, but Miles fourth 3-pointer of the game quieted the crowd and West put his shoulder down, pushed Thaddeus Young out of the way and dropped in a layup for a 96-94 lead that the Pacers finished off at the free throw line.We dont want to let them get that close and tie it up and take the lead, but our guys have been deep in the playoffs, most of this group, Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. They showed great composure and were able to pull out the win.Both teams have battled injuries to key players all season, with the Pacers missing Paul George and George Hill and the Wolves playing most of the season without point guard Ricky Rubio, centre Nikola Pekovic and shooting guard Kevin Martin.TIP-INSPacers: Coach Frank Vogel said injured PG George Hill (quadriceps) has looked good for stretches during practice, but is still trying to get his conditioning back. He was injured in Minnesota in the preseason and has not played yet this year. ... The Pacers have at least 20 assists in six of their last eight games.Timberwolves: Newly acquired Troy Daniels made a brief debut at the end of the second quarter. Daniels came from Houston in the trade that sent Corey Brewer to the Rockets last week. The Wolves have been at the bottom of the league in 3-point shooting, which is Daniels specialty. Theres definitely going to be a lot more 3s, I can tell you that, Daniels said.WIGGINS STRUGGLESRookie Andrew Wiggins, the No. 1 overall pick, scored five points on 2-for-8 shooting and was singled out by Saunders after the game for his lack of energy at the start. Saunders has been harping on Wiggins to bring consistent effort throughout the game all season long.Hes just got to play harder, Saunders said. You cant pick and choose.UP NEXTPacers: Host New Orleans on Tuesday night.Timberwolves: At Cleveland on Tuesday night. Isaiah Crowell Jets Jersey .C. -- Gleason Fournier scored the shootout winner as the Grand Rapids Griffins defeated the Abbotsford Heat 4-3 Friday in American Hockey League action. Teddy Bridgewater Jersey . -- The Atlanta Braves added to their extensive wave of long-term deals with their young stars on Sunday by agreeing to a $42 million, four-year contract with All-Star closer Craig Kimbrel. . After seven wins in a row, they have to do it one more time to get into the playoffs.RIO DE JANEIRO, Brazil -- FIFA will not take action against the Colombia player who injured Neymar and ended the Brazil stars World Cup. FIFA said its disciplinary panel "cannot consider this matter" under the rules because the match referee saw the challenge by Camilo Zuniga and judged it at the time. "In this specific case, no retrospective action can be taken," FIFA said in a statement on Monday, because the incident "did not escape the match officials attention." In a separate decision, the panel also refused to consider a Confederation of Brazilian Football appeal against captain Thiago Silvas yellow card in the 2-1 win quarterfinals over Colombia on Friday in Fortaleza. Thiago Silvas second caution of the tournament triggered a one-match ban which he will serve in the semifinals. Brazil will therefore be without its best player and its captain against Germany on Tuesday in Belo Horizonte. Neymar will be sidelined for about 45 days after sustaining a fractured third vertebra. The panel studied video of Zunigas 86th-minute challenge, where he kneed Neymar in the back when jumping into him at speed. Zuniga apologized on Saturday. Spanish referee Carlos Velasco Carballo did not show Zuniga a yellow card, and FIFAs disciplinary panel coonsidered the incident judged on the spot. Terrelle Pryor Sr. Jersey. The seriousness of an injury could not be weighed in a disciplinary decision, nor was mistaken identity a factor in the case, FIFA added. "First and foremost, the chairman of the FIFA Disciplinary Committee (Claudio Sulser) wishes to state that he deeply regrets the incident and the serious consequences on Neymars health," the statement said. The Luis Suarez biting case earlier in the World Cup raised expectations that Sulsers panel would also punish Zuniga. However, Suarezs bite of Italy defender Giorgio Chiellinis shoulder was missed by match officials. That allowed Sulser to use video evidence to ban the Uruguay forward for nine international matches and four months. The Mexican referee in that case, Marco Rodriguez, will handle the Brazil-Germany semifinal in his first match duty since Uruguay beat Italy 1-0 on June 24. Thiago Silva was booked against Colombia for impeding goalkeeper David Ospina who tried to kick the ball downfield. The FIFA disciplinary code states that cautions can be cancelled only in "exceptional circumstances." The panel "cannot consider the matter given the fact that there is no legal basis entitling it to grant such request," FIFA said.
