Preview: Wolves vs. Mavs

by Shahbaz Khan

In the Minnesota Timberwolves' (22-49) final game of the season, the Dallas Mavericks (42-29) visit Target Center on Sunday evening.

The Wolves are one day removed from a 124-108 defeat versus the Boston Celtics, with Karl-Anthony Towns' 24 points leading the way for Minnesota.

Winners of six of their last seven games, the Mavericks look to head into the postseason on a high note, with a win on Sunday securing the team the fifth seed in the Western Conference Playoffs and a three-game winning streak. Dallas defeated the Toronto Raptors 114-110 on Friday behind Kristaps Prozingis' 21 points.

The Timberwolves and Mavs have met twice in the 2020-21 campaign to date, with Dallas emerging victorious in both matchups.

Tipoff for Saturday's game is set for 8:00 PM Central, available locally on Bally Sports North and 830 WCCO.
