The Dallas Mavericks

Team Preview

Luka Doncic Mavericks NBA

This Maverick team has been nothing but impressive throughout the entire postseason. There’s still a couple question mark surrounding Irving in my opinion, but with the recent talk, seems like he really took it personal and we can probably expect 100% from him throughout the rest of the series!

The Dallas Mavericks will be aiming to take a 2-0 series lead after outlasting the Timberwolves in a thrilling 108-105 comeback win in Game 1 on Wednesday.

Luka Doncic led the team with 33 points, six rebounds and eight assists, Kyrie Irving added 30 points with five rebounds and four assists while PJ Washington chipped in with 13 points, seven rebounds and two blocks.

As a team, the Mavericks shot 49 percent from the field and six of 25 from the 3-point line as they struggled to make their 3-point shots in the first half and trailed for most of the contest, before they caught fire and went on a decisive 13-0 run early in the fourth quarter to take the lead.

The job wasn't done as the Timberwolves came back to reclaim the lead late in the game before the Mavericks closed the final 3:14 on a 10-3 run to come away with a hug road win but can they continue this dominance on the road?

Minnesota Timberwolves

Team Preview

Anthony Edwards NBA

We seen the Timberwolves kind of slip up late in the last game and we are seeing them starting to fall away from what really has got them here and that is their defensive play! This is the defensive team in the league, that's what we need to see.

I'm sure the Minnesota Timberwolves will be kicking themselves after coming up just short to the Mavericks in the series opener. Jaden McDaniels drained six 3-pointers to lead the team with 24 points on nine of 15 shooting, Anthony Edwards added 19 points with 11 rebounds and eight assists while Karl-Anthony Towns chipped in with 16 points on six of 20 shooting.

As a team, the Timberwolves shot just 42 percent from the field and 18 of 49 from the 3-point line as they caught fire from the 3-point line early to lead for most of the contest, only to go cold in the fourth quarter which left the door open for the Mavericks to grab the win at the end and take the series lead.

Naz Reid once again provided a spark off the bench with 15 points in just 24 minutes of action, but Mike Conley struggled for just six points while Edwards couldn't find any offensive rhythm until late in the game. Can we see a Timberwolves bounce back tonight?

Timberwolves Player Facts

  • Karl-Anthony Towns ranks 2nd amongst qualified Centers for three-pointers made Per Game (2.2) this season.

  • Naz Reid ranks 3rd amongst qualified Centers for three-pointers made Per Game (2.1) this season.

Dallas Mavericks vs Minnesota Timberwolves

Game Prediction

Luka Doncic & Anthony Edwards

The Plugs Pick : Mavs / Twolves Under 209.5 -125

Look, there’s no doubt that this is going to be a great game and a great series. I also have no doubt that the Timberwolves know what they have to do here! Its going to be all about defense for Minnesota in Game 2. The Timberwolves are 6-0 SU in games when they hold opponents to under 100 points, so I’m expecting a feisty response following that disappointing loss in Game 1. so expect a much heavier defense brought on by the Timberwolves in this game and I’m not expecting Kyrie to eat in the paint the way he didn’t game one and that will take a lot of points off the board as well. I’m expecting a defensive battle here in game two! So we’re going to take the under for an easy cash tonight!
