Recap

T'wolves beat slumping Mavericks for first time since 2006


By Dave Ivey, for NBA.com

DALLAS (NBA.com exclusive) -- A night that ended with a rare loss to the Timberwolves began with the even rarer sight of Dirk Nowitzki coming off the bench for the first time in more than a decade.

Minnesota ended its 13-game losing streak to the Mavericks with a 117-108 victory Friday night, its first win in the series since Jan. 4, 2006 and its first in Dallas since March 15, 2005. Six players scored between 12 and 19 points for the red-hot Timberwolves, who shot 53 percent and drained a season-high 12 3-pointers.

The Mavericks lost for the fourth time in five games, this time to a team that had dropped nine straight on the road since Dec. 26 and was 3-21 away from the Twin Cities. The Timberwolves were 0-10 against the Southwest Division and had lost 12 straight against opponents with winning records.

The Mavericks fought back from a 13-point deficit to take a 106-104 lead with 2:35 remaining, but the Timberwolves responded with a 13-2 surge to finish the game and extend their season-best winning streak to three games.

"It's just a good win against a playoff-caliber team," said Minnesota rookie point guard Jonny Flynn, who had a team-high 19 points and seven assists. "We really held them off during that great run and we came away with a big win."

Corey Brewer scored 14 points and began the decisive run with a 3-pointer at the 2:14 mark. He pushed the lead to 112-108 by making all three free throws after he was fouled by Nowitzki on a 25-footer with 1:07 left. Rookie Wayne Ellington delivered the dagger, swishing a 3-pointer from the corner to make it 115-108 with 32.3 seconds remaining.

Al Jefferson and Ryan Hollins added 15 points and Ryan Gomes scored 12 as all five starters reached twin digits. Kevin Love had a double-double off the bench with 17 points and 11 rebounds.

Nowitzki led six Mavericks in double figures with 21 points in his first appearance as a reserve since a loss to San Antonio on Dec. 14, 1999. The nine-time All-Star was benched for arriving late for Friday's shootaround and entered the game at the 6:48 mark of the first quarter. Nowitzki has been in the starting lineup for 863 of his club-record 888 career games and didn't play particularly well in a sixth-man role, shooting 6-for-15.

"Did it hamper him? When you get guys coming in late, those things tend to throw things out of whack," Mavericks head coach Rick Carlisle said of Nowitzki. "He knew he was wrong and forgot we were walking through stuff at 5 o'clock and didn't show up until 25 after."

Jason Terry had 20 points and Jason Kidd filled the box score with 17 points, seven assists, six rebounds, four steals, two blocked shots and five of the Mavericks' 14 turnovers. Rookie Rodrigue Beaubois was 4-for-5 from 3-point range and scored a career-high 17 points. Josh Howard started for Nowitzki and had 11 points, all in the first half. Erick Dampier returned to the starting lineup after a one-game absence with a lingering left knee injury and grabbed 10 rebounds.

The Mavericks shot just 33 percent (13-or-39) and were out-rebounded 25-14 in the second half. Dallas dropped to 15-9 at home, matching last season's total number of losses here (32-9).

"We're not going to be good until we play hard," Carlisle said. "We need to dig down and find some pride. It's as simple as that."

Carlisle said before the game that he wanted to run against the Timberwolves. True to his word, Dallas outscored Minnesota 24-5 in fastbreak points (16-2 in the first half).

The T-Wolves made up that difference by shooting 55 percent from behind the arc. Flynn and Brewer had three 3-pointers apiece and Gomes and Ellington each sank two. Their previous season high for 3-pointers was nine at New York on Jan. 26. Minnesota has now shot over 50 percent from the field in three straight games for the first time since March 2008.

"I like what our guys did in terms of executing our offense, moving the basketball, playing defense and staying attached to the defensive game plan," said Minnesota head coach Kurt Rambis. "I was very pleased."
