The Minnesota Timberwolves did something no one else has done all season long in their 115-114 victory over Indiana Tuesday night. They became the first opposing team to win in Indiana when trailing after three quarters.

The Wolves trailed by three points heading into the fourth and the Pacers were perfect at home this season when holding a lead heading into the final quarter.

Karl-Anthony Towns was unstoppable for Minnesota, he finished with 37 points and 12 rebounds. But it was Ricky Rubio's free throws that gave Minnesota the lead.

Minnesota hosts the Lakers on Thursday night.
