Notebook: Wolves 105, Mavs 90


By Dave Ivey, for NBA.com
Posted Wednesday January 25, 2012 11:51PM

THE FACTS: The good news for the Mavericks is that there are no more pregame ceremonies on the schedule. Just as Miami spoiled the banner-raising in the season opener, an undermanned Minnesota squad stole the spotlight after the 2011 NBA champions received their rings Wednesday, beating Dallas 105-90 behind 31 points and 10 rebounds from Kevin Love.

Love enjoyed his own pregame celebration of sorts, signing a four-year extension worth more than $60 million. Ricky Rubio contributed 17 points and 12 assists, Wayne Ellington scored 16 points and Nikola Pekovic added 13 off the bench. Jason Terry scored 17 and Shawn Marion had 15 for the Mavericks, who had their three-game winning streak and seven-game home winning streak snapped.

QUOTABLE: "It was a good day. I wanted to put everything aside that happened off the court and really wanted to focus on the game tonight. We fought back from double digits and came up with big runs and got big stops down the stretch. You can see us growing as a team and we've got to continue to fight."
-- Kevin Love, who recorded his 17th double-double in 18 games.

THE STAT: The Timberwolves halted the Mavericks' franchise-record streak of holding 15 consecutive opponents under 100 points -- and they did it with only nine available players. It was the most points surrendered by Dallas since a 115-93 loss to Denver on Dec. 26. Minnesota shot 42.9 percent (9-for-21) from 3-point range and outscored the Mavericks 28-6 at the free-throw line.

TURNING POINT: Minnesota broke open a 70-70 tie with a 16-3 surge spanning the third and fourth quarters. Love got the run started with one of his four 3-pointers (4-for-6), followed by a three-point play by Ellington and a couple of dunks by Pekovic. The only points mustered by Dallas between the 3:00 mark of the third period and the 9:11 mark of the fourth came on a jumper by Rodrigue Beaubois and a free throw by Brandan Wright. The Mavericks shot 31.1 percent in the second half.

QUOTABLE II: "Minnesota was more aggressive. They had 33 free throw [attempts] to our 10. The more aggressive team is going to win most NBA games."
-- Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle

HOT: All of the Mavericks not named Lamar Odom combined to shoot 61.5 percent (24-for-39) during the first half. Dallas knocked down nine of its first 11 shots in the second quarter and led 46-32 with 7:13 left before intermission.

NOT: Odom, starting for the injured Dirk Nowitzki, was just 1-for-11 from the field in the first half. The reigning NBA Sixth Man of the Year finished 2-for-14, tallying five points, four rebounds, no assists and two turnovers. He did not get off the bench in the fourth quarter.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Rubio was only 4-for-16 from the field and committed seven turnovers, but the rookie played nearly the entire game (46:27) as Minnesota's only available point guard and added seven rebounds and four steals to his double-double performance. ... Beaubois finished with 11 points, five assists, three blocks (including one against Love) and three boards. Jason Kidd had eight points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

NOTABLE: Injured Minnesota guard J.J. Barea and retired sharpshooter Peja Stojakovic, who helped the Mavericks win the franchise's first title, also received their rings. So did former Dallas greats Brad Davis, Rolando Blackman and Derek Harper. The pregame ceremony included playoff highlights on the video screen and a speech by owner Mark Cuban. ... Minnesota guard Luke Ridnour was a game-time scratch with a sore knee. ... Dallas lost for the first time when leading or tied at halftime (1-11). The Mavs were up 54-52 at the break. ... Minnesota center Darko Milicic matched his career high with seven blocks.

UP NEXT: For the Mavericks, Friday vs. Utah, Sunday vs. San Antonio, Monday @ Phoenix. For the Timberwolves, Friday vs. San Antonio, Sunday vs. L.A. Lakers, Monday @ Houston.
