Venue – Target Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota
IND vs MIN DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Minnesota Timberwolves host Indiana Pacers in an NBA match at the Target Center, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, on Tuesday.
The Wolves started their regular season with a 140-136 defeat away at San Antonio Spurs, followed by a win and a loss against Cleveland Cavaliers and Dallas Mavericks in the next two games respectively.
Those two losses have come at a combined margin of 8 points, so the team is performing well. But their progress may be derailed by the in-house problem which is attracting too much attention for all the wrong reasons. And it’s about their prized asset, Jimmy Butler.
The four-time All-Star wanted to be traded to Miami Heat but was held captivated in Minnesota by head-coach Tom Thibodeau. Now there are rumours that he is unhappy and also misbehaved with some of his teammates and the general manager of the franchise, Tom Thibodeau.
As they say, ‘one bad fish can spoil the whole pond’, and in sports, it is certainly true that ‘an unhappy player can spoil the whole dressing room’ and more often than ended up damaging the cohesion between the players.
But the picture looks quite different on the court as it’s Butler who dropped the game-high 33 points to win the match for his team against the Cavaliers, while in the next game he was rested and Minnesota lost the match against Mavericks.
Butler is into his final year of the contract and he will be gone sooner or later, but Wolves will have to learn how to win in his absence.
Indiana Pacers started their new campaign with a big 111-83 win over Memphis Grizzlies. But were brought back down to earth in the next game with a 118-101 defeat to Milwaukee Bucks.
The inconsistency could be the name best describing Indiana Pacers as they were back to their marauding best in the very next game and outplayed Brooklyn Nets in all the quarters in their big 132-112 win at Bankers Life Fieldhouse. What was quite remarkable in the win for Pacers that their 9 players touched the double-digit mark in the match.

Minnesota Timberwolves: W-1, L-2

Players to watch out for:
