MINNEAPOLIS — Chase Budinger converted a layup on a feed from Andrei Kirilenko with 0.8 seconds to go, lifting the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 96-94 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Friday night.

Budinger scored 18 points while subbing for the injured Brandon Roy. Alexey Shved had 11 points and seven assists and Nikola Pekovic added 13 points and eight rebounds for the Timberwolves.

Roy left the game at halftime with a sore right knee. The former three-time All-Star is attempting a comeback after chronic knee issues forced him to retire from Portland before last season.

George Hill had 29 points, seven assists and five rebounds and David West had 19 points and 13 boards for the Pacers.

Shved, a rookie from Russia, ran the pick-and-roll like a seasoned veteran against Indiana’s stout defense, creating scoring chances for himself and his teammates.
