Indiana Pacers 107

The Minnesota Timberwolves lost their first road game of the year, falling to Indiana 107-103 Friday night.

1. Paul George is definitely back

Paul George was all over the floor for Indiana. He missed last season because of a broken leg, but made his return felt Friday night, finishing with 29 points and nine rebounds.

George found a variety of ways to score: he got to the rim, knocked down 4-of-6 from the three-point line and was 9-of-10 from the free throw line.

2. Youth sparks Wolves come back

The Wolves trailed by 27 in the second half, but the youth sparked a come back to make things interesting.

Andrew Wiggins, Zach LaVine and Karl-Anthony Towns helped lead the resurgence for Minnesota.

Wiggins and LaVine were the Wolves' leading scorers each with 26 points. LaVine knocked down four threes in the game. Towns had 12 points and nine rebounds.

A late turnover derailed the Wolves as Andre Miller overthrew LaVine on a transition opportunity as the Wolves were attempting to take the lead.

3. Rubio out again

The Wolves were again without one of their key players. Ricky Rubio missed his third straight game, with a strained hamstring.

Rubio hasn't played since Monday. The Wolves are 0-3 without him.
