Recap: Indiana vs. Minnesota

Indianapolis, IN (SportsNetwork.com) - George Hill scored 17 points with seven assists and six rebounds to help the Indiana Pacers to a 103-90 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves in preseason action.

Shayne Whittington tallied 11 points and Lavoy Allen added 10 points with seven rebounds for the Pacers, who look to build off of their Central Division title from last season without the help of All-Star Paul George.

George will miss the entire season after he suffered a gruesome broken leg while playing in a scrimmage for Team USA in preparation for the 2014 World Cup.

No. 1 overall pick Andrew Wiggins, who was traded from Cleveland in the blockbuster that sent Kevin Love to the Cavs, led his new team with 18 points on 4-of-11 shooting.

Gorgui Dieng recorded a 16-point, 10-rebound double-double in the setback.

The Atlanta Braves and Philadelphia Phillies, former powerhouses of the division, are going through rebuilds and won't contend anytime soon.
