Minneapolis, MN (SportsNetwork.com) - C.J. Miles scored 28 points off the bench to lead the Indiana Pacers to a 100-96 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday. Roy Hibbert supplied 15 points with eight rebounds and David West netted 14 points for Indiana, which snapped an eight-game road losing streak. Our guys have been deep in the playoffs, they showed great composure and we were able to pull out the win, Pacers coach Frank Vogel said. Mo Williams poured in 24 points with 10 assists for the Timberwolves, while Shabazz Muhammad and Chase Budinger deposited 21 and 13 points, respectively. Minnesota has lost five straight. Williams 3-pointer gave the Timberwolves a 90-89 lead late, their first advantage since it was 3-2 early in the first. Hibbert answered at the other end with a layup before Williams worked a pick- and-roll with Gorgui Dieng and knocked down the jumper from the top of the key. The seesaw affair continued with Miles burying a trey to give Indiana a 94-92 edge, but Dieng converted a pair of free throws to tie the game with 1:36 left. Hibbert missed a hook shot with under a minute to play, however, Miles pulled down the offensive rebound. Out of a timeout, West hit a jumper to push the Pacers back in front with 34.3 seconds left. Rookie Andrew Wiggins made a pivotal mistake at the other end. Williams looked for a back-door pass to Wiggins, who stepped out of bounds as he received the ball, thus turning it over. Indiana worked the ball around after the turnover and chipped eight seconds off the clock before Miles was fouled. He converted both shots from the line to make it a two-possession game with 11.7 seconds left. Newly-acquired Troy Daniels missed a long two-point try, then Luis Scola missed a pair from the line. Muhammad made a quick jumper in the closing seconds and Miles sealed it with two from the stripe. We didnt play as hard as we needed to play in the first half, Minnesota coach Flip Saunders said. (The young guys) need to play with a sense of urgency. Or they are going to sit. Miles 3 gave the Pacers a 20-17 lead after 12 minutes. Indiana then went on a 10-2 run early in the second to push the margin to 10 and it led 52-38 at the half. Minnesota worked its way back, however, as Diengs jumper late in the third cut the deficit to three. The Pacers scored six of the final eight points of the quarter, though, and led 75-68 entering the fourth. Game Notes Minnesota is 1-10 in the month of December ...

Its been two seasons in one for both parties and neither will look back on the first 18 games fondly. "I think I took the fall for a lot of things," said Gay, reflecting on his short time in Toronto ahead of Wednesdays game against his former club. "But its happened before and itll happen again." Rightly or wrongly, Gay has and will continue to shoulder most of the blame for Torontos 6-12 start, the same way his exodus will be credited for the teams remarkable turnaround. Theres no avoiding it. In Toronto, Gay was the offence, more or less. He was taking more shots than ever before, shooting the lowest percentages of his career and as a result the team was losing. The numbers are pretty conclusive, the Raptors are a better team without him on the roster. However, Gay has also taken off since the trade to Sacramento, which goes to show you that finding the right fit - although its easier said than done - can make a big difference. "I think here theres just more space [in the offence]," said Gay, who is averaging more points and taking fewer shots with the Kings. "Obviously with the kind of season Kyle (Lowry) is having and with DeMar (DeRozan) sometimes it would be a little cluttered out there, especially at the guard position. Here theres just more space for me to do what I do." Gay has shot 50 per cent or better in 17 of his 25 games with the Kings after doing so in one of 18 contests to begin the season in Toronto. Overall, hes hitting 53 per cent of his field goal attempts since the trade, having shot 39 per cent before it. "It just wasnt working up there for whatever reason," said Kings first-year head coach Mike Malone. "But when we made the acquisition we looked at Rudy as a complete player and his whole history, including his years in Memphis and you see how efficient and effective hes been for us." He credits most of that improvement to a system thats more conducive to his style of play, a system that revolves around dominant centre DeMarcus Cousins. Cousins is one of just three NBA players averaging over 20 points and 10 rebounds this season. The attention he attracts in the paint has created space for Gay to operate on the perimeter. "You look at Torontos roster and no disrespect to Jonas (Valanciunas) or Amir (Johnson) but they dont have a true low-post presence," Malone said. "When Rudy was in Memphis he had two [frontcourt] guys that he could play with in Marc (Gasol) and Zach (Randolph) and we just thought the idea of putting him on the perimeter with the inside presence of [Cousins] could really allow him to showcase his abilities.dddddddddddd." "So it is a fit and guys have to compliment each other and thats what putting together a roster is all about," he continued. "Up there, for whatever reason, DeMar and Rudy on the court maybe wasnt a mesh, maybe [there] wasnt enough shots to go around. Im not sure what it was but all I can tell you is that the games that weve had Rudy hes been a great fit." The marriage between Gay and the Raptors, which lasted less than a full year, was flawed from the outset. He and DeRozan had repetitive skill sets that clashed on the court, restricting Lowry from playing to his strengths and stunting the growth of Valanciunas. Dwane Casey tried his best to fit square pegs into round holes until the inevitable split up freed his team and their most expensive player. The pieces just didnt fit. Though his pre-trade numbers may suggest otherwise, Gay never threw in the towel or lost hope that they would figure it out. "I think we had a chance to be a really good team," he said, two months removed from the deal. "I mean obviously theyre a really good team now but I still dont feel we had a lot of time to build and become a big threat in the East." Without Gay the Raptors have a record of 20-10, third best in the Eastern Conference behind only Indiana and Miami. They have recorded 20 or more assists in 24 of those 30 games, averaging 22.9 per contest, ninth-best over that stretch after ranking last in that category before the trade (averaging 17.3). They have gone from the 19th ranked three-point shooting team (34 per cent) to the fifth best (38 per cent) and find themselves in the top 10 in both offensive (10th) and defensive (fifth) efficiency since Dec. 8. "I think the trade helped both of us," Gay said. "Im here, I have more room and they have a solid bench. [Theres] no hard feelings. I love the fact that those guys are winning." Meanwhile, Gays reprisal hasnt translated to team success in Sacramento, at least not yet. The Kings are 11-19 since the trade, tied for the worst record in the West overall. Theyre last in the NBA in assists since Gays arrival but its been their defence, among the worst in the league, that has held them back more than anything else. Yet with Gay on board, paired with a young core of Cousins and breakout point guard Isaiah Thomas, the Kings are optimistic about the future. They have reason to be. "We couldnt be happier with Rudy and hes shown that hes much more than just a scorer," Malone said. "Hes proven to everybody that he can be a very efficient player so thats been a bonus."
