Notebook: Timberwolves 112, Mavericks 106


Micah Powell, for NBA.com
Posted Sun Dec 01, 2013 12:24 AM - Updated Sun Dec 01, 2013 12:24 AM

THE FACT: Minnesota used a 13-4 run to end the third quarter, pushing its lead to 84-77 entering the fourth quarter. With the win, the Timberwolves are now 9-0 when leading after three quarters.

THE LEAD: Every Minnesota starter scored in double figures, led by 27 points from Kevin Martin, as the Timberwolves downed the Dallas Mavericks 112-106 Saturday night at the American Airlines Center.

Kevin Love recorded a double-double with 21 points and 11 rebounds and Nikola Pekovic also chipped in 21 points to help the Wolves (9-9) snap a three-game losing streak.

With Jose Calderon (bruised right ankle) inactive, Dallas (10-8) struggled to find a rhythm from beyond the arc, connecting on just 7-for-24 trey attempts. Monta Ellis led the way for the Mavericks, scoring 26 points and handing out six assists in the loss.

QUOTABLE: "We are in a tough stretch into December, so to get a win, especially on the road where we have had trouble these first several games, it feels good."

--Kevin Love

THE STAT: The game was won at the charity stripe, as the Timberwolves hit 21-for-30 attempts from the line, while Dallas attempted just 11 free throws.

TURNING POINT: After a 7-2 Dallas run cut the Timberwolves lead to just 92-90, Minnesota rattled off an 11-2 run, led by nine points from Martin, to push the advantage back to double-digits.

QUOTABLE II: "We're going to learn about our team right now. Lose four out of five, have a tough loss like last night and then another tough one like tonight -- it's going to test the togetherness and the collective will."

--Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle

HOT: Pekovic abused Samuel Dalembert in the paint early, scoring 10 of Minnesota's first 17 points. ... Ellis kept Dallas within striking distance, scoring 11 of his team-high 26 points in the third quarter.

NOT: Vince Carter continued to struggle from the field, shooting just 4-for-12 and amassing 10 points. In his last four games, Carter has shot just 10-for-45 from the floor.

ROOKIE WATCH: With Calderon out of action, Gal Mekel received his first career start and posted six points and a season-high seven assists in 26 minutes. The rookie struggled to find his shot, however, connecting on just 3-for-12 attempts.

NOTABLE: The win snapped a five-game road losing streak for the Timberwolves. ... Shawn Marion passed Fat Lever (1,666) for 20th pace on the NBA's all-time steals list. ... Ellis hit his 4,000th career field goal with a 3-pointer in the third quarter. ... Martin's streak of consecutive made free throws came to an end at 36.

UP NEXT: For the Mavericks, Tuesday vs. Bobcats, Wednesday @ Pelicans, Saturday @ Blazers. For the Timberwolves, Sunday @ Thunder, Wednesday vs. Spurs (Mexico City), Saturday vs. Heat.
