MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Timberwolves plan to send first-round draft pick Shabazz Muhammad to Iowa of the NBA Development League in an effort to get him some more playing time. Coach Rick Adelman says the seldom-used Muhammad will benefit from playing big minutes rather than sitting on the bench for the Timberwolves. The 14th overall pick in the June draft has played in only 11 of Minnesotas 32 games this season. He has yet to play 10 minutes in a game. Muhammad is averaging 1.1 points. He was initially resistant to the idea of playing in the lower league. But Adelman and President Flip Saunders say its the best thing for his development. Muhammad will likely play at least four games before potentially rejoining the Timberwolves. He averaged 17.9 points in his lone season at UCLA. jerseys from china .

Paul George gestured to the crowd with his shooting eye and Danny Granger showed everyone he still has the touch. This is starting to get fun for the Eastern Conferences winningest team. Stephenson finished with his third triple-double this season, George scored 24 points and Granger made four 3-pointers as the Pacers overwhelmed Boston 106-79 on Sunday to ruin coach Brad Stevens return to his hometown. "Were starting the game off with high energy and were ending the game with high energy and in between were maintaining that energy," George said. "It wears teams down, and I think thats been the case these past couple games." Indiana (22-5) is taking full advantage of it, too. Since losing at home for the first time Monday and then losing at Miami on Wednesday, their first back-to-back losses of the season, the Pacers have been almost untouchable. They led for the final 38 minutes against Boston (12-17) and the final 41 against Houston on Friday. They have the best record in the East and are making things look easy. Stephenson finished with 12 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists and remains the NBAs only player with multiple triple-doubles this season. George, who is lobbying for Stephenson to make the All-Star team, has made 16 of 29 shots over the last two games. Roy Hibbert had 15 points and 12 rebounds, and Granger, who missed all but five games last season with a left knee injury and the first 25 this season with a strained left calf, was 4 of 5 on 3s. He scored 12 against Boston and has 17 points this season after scoring 27 all of last season. Perhaps thats why Stevens, a lifelong Indiana fan, called this the best Pacers team hes seen in his lifetime. "Adding Granger is scary," Stevens said. "I think the more comfortable he gets, the better theyll be. I think theyre already if not the leader for the hunt, theyre in the hunt." The resume proves it. Indiana has won two straight, beating the Rockets, a Western Conference contender, and the Celtics, who entered Sunday tied for the Atlantic Division lead, by a combined 60 points. The 33 and 27-point victory margins are the two most lopsided wins Indiana has had all season, though the Pacers beat Milwaukee by 27 last month, and its only the second time theyve topped 100 poiints in consecutive games this season.dddddddddddd The Pacers also will have a chance to pad their lead over the next couple of weeks. Sundays game marked the start of a 12-game stretch in which the Pacers will face 11 teams that currently have losing records. "We are a tough basketball team, we know that we can play, we know that we can improve," George said. "We are having fun out there because we are getting to know each other better." Thats a scary thought, even for Stevens, who was hoping for a much happier homecoming. The Celtics coach grew up in Zionsville, a suburb on the citys northwest side, and led nearby Butler to back-to-back national championship games before taking the Celtics job in July. During pregame introductions, he received a warm, polite reception from the home state crowd, which included his successor, Butler coach Brandon Miller, and his former athletic director, Barry Collier. The Pacers defence wasnt nearly as welcoming. Avery Bradley led the Celtics with 13 points, while Jeff Green and Courtney Lee each scored 11. Nobody else reached double figures. Stephenson was a showman all night, making nifty behind-the-back passes and at times dribbling wildly to shed defenders. So when he hit a 20-foot jumper after sending a Celtics defender sprawling on the ground early in the fourth quarter, he responded to the crowds ovation by wiggling his hips. Pacers coach Frank Vogel likes Stephenson for another reason. "Hes such a gifted passer and playmaker, he gives us a real edge," Vogel said. Boston started well, taking a 15-10 lead after going on a 7-0 run. Things went downhill fast. Indiana finished the first quarter on a 10-2 spurt to take a 20-17 lead. After the Celtics rallied to tie the score at 23 with 8:49 left in the first half, Granger hit two 3-pointers to spur a 15-1 run that turned the game and gave Indiana a commanding 38-24 lead with 5:08 to play in the first half. "Were not a team to make excuses," Jared Sullinger said. "Indiana just came out and kicked our behind. We just have to play better." Notes: The Pacers have won three of the last four and five of the last seven in the series. ... The Celtics have played back-to-back games eight times this season and have now been swept five times. ... Twelve of Indianas 22 wins have come by 10 or more points. cheap nfl jerseys ' ' '
