Minnesota will finished off their back to back with the 2nd leg inside American Airlines Arena in Dallas on Wednesday night.
Minnesota will be in New Orleans on Tuesday as they look to put back to back wins together for the first time in a while.
Dallas grabbed an overtime win against Boston as they’ve won 2 of their last 3 with a win against Chicago and a loss against the Spurs sandwiched in between.
The Timberwolves finally got in the win column in the month of January as they knocked off the Suns with a 20 point win on Sunday.
Minnesota has been horrible this season as they’ve been able to string together back to back wins just 4 times this season. They’ll have a chance to make that 5 against New Orleans Tuesday, but that doesn’t bode well for them heading into Dallas.
Minnesota has struggled on back to backs this season as this young team just hasn’t been strong enough mentally or physically to play well in the 2nd legs.
The Timberwolves bring in a 7-12 SU record on the road this season, but have gone 12-7 ATS in those 19 games. Overall though, the Twolves have been a bad ATS team this season. They have gone 17-24-1 ATS this season, leaving them in the red for backers.
Dallas has gone 3-3 in their last 6 games, with one of those wins coming against these Twolves on the road back on 1/10. The Mavericks got a major contribution from Nowitzki as he put in 29 points in the victory.
The Mavericks held off the late surge from the Timberwolves as they racked up 32 points in the 4th quarter, but their attempt fell just short. The Mavs held the Timberwolves to just 42% shooting overall and just 4 of 16 from behind the arc.
Dallas has won 2 of 3 with their most recent win coming at home against Boston in overtime. It was once again Nowitzki, who had 31 points and 11 rebounds as Dallas recovered from a late 3rd quarter collapse to grab the win.
The Mavericks now sit 6th in the Western Conference, tied with 5th seeded Memphis as they continue to bounce back and forth.
Dallas has gone 12-7 SU at home this season and like the Timberwolves have done on the road, they are also 12-7 AYS.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Timberwolves have just been way too inconsistent to back this season. Combined that with this being the 2nd leg of a back to back for them, their youth will certainly be exposed here.
Dallas has had Dirk Nowitzki playing at a superb level too, which along with Deron Williams and Chandler Parsons, is just way too much for Minnesota to compete with here.
