The NBA is back in action today as Minnesota Timberwolves will grapple with Dallas Mavericks.
Minnesota is heading into this game after a 116 – 128 in the game against the Nugget. And on the other side, Dallas was upended 111-107 on the road by Atlanta in the second game of a back to back Saturday night.
Minnesota Timberwolves Form
The Timberwolves suffered a defeat in the game against the Nuggets in a Northwest Division matchup Sunday. Moreover, it is safe to say that they do not have a good season so far. Therefore, the Timberwolves are in the basement of the Northwest Division, 21 games behind the Nuggets for the top spot. As for the Western Conference playoff picture, the team is 14th with 11 games behind the Grizzlies for the final playoff spot.
On the offensive side of the game, the Timberwolves score an average of 112.5 points per game, good for the 13th spot in the league in scoring. Also, they have an average of 45.6 boards per game combined with 23.7 dimes per night.
Also, their defensive record stands at 116.1 conceded points per game which is the 26th defensive record in the NBA.
Dallas Mavericks Form
The Mavericks are a good team this year. However, they have dropped their form as they lost their last two games in a row. Especially, the defeat in the game against the Hawks was disappointing. Nevertheless, the team is playing without Luka Doncic and has affected their game.
And now the Mavericks are second in the Southwest Division, two games behind the Rockets for the top spot. As for the Western Conference playoff picture, the team is seventh in the Western Conference, 9.5 games behind the Lakers for the top spot.
On the offensive side of the game, the Mavericks score an average of 116.4 points per game on the season. Houston is collecting 47.1 boards a night combined with 24.3 dimes per contest. The Mavericks give up an average of 110.4 points per game on the year. And that is the 15th defensive record in the NBA.
The Timberwolves are not playing well this season. Also, their form is not that good at the moment. On top of that, they are playing away at a strong Mavericks team.
On the other side, the Mavericks need to get back to winning ways after two defeats in a row. And this is the perfect game for them to get a win. Take the Mavericks to win this one.
