The Minnesota Timberwolves have now lost 10 straight games after falling to the Indiana Pacers on Monday night by 23 points, 111-88.
Needing other players to step up with Kevin Love, Luke Ridnour, and Ricky Rubio out with injuries again, the Timberwolves did not receive the help they would need to end their nine-game skid and knock off the playoff bound Pacers. Jose Barea gave his best effort, scoring 14 points and assisting on nine baskets, but he was just 5-for-14 from the floor. Derrick Williams added a double-double off the bench with 13 points and 10 rebounds.
The Pacers were led by David West, who scored a game-high 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds.
Minnesota will look to end their longest losing streak since last year's franchise worst 18-gamer tomorrow when they host Memphis.
