Miles scores 28 to help Pacers hold off Wolves

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) 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 Indiana Pacers hold off the Minnesota Timberwolves 100-96 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 percent from the field on the second night of a back-to-back and forced 16 turnovers to win for just the second time this month.

Mo Williams had 24 points and 10 assists and Shabazz Muhammad added 21 points and six rebounds for the Timberwolves (5-21), who have lost 11 of their last 12 games.
