This game features the struggling Mavericks facing off against the equally struggling Timberwolves.
The Mavericks are 2-2 in their last 4, while Minnesota is also 2-2 in their last 4 contests.
The Timberwolves and Mavericks have split the season series so far this year.
The Mavericks are clearly in a rebuilding year in what is Dirk Nowitzki’s final season. Can they turn things around after the All Star break?
Heading into All-Star weekend Dirk Nowitzki was on a tear, lighting up the Mavs opponents. He picked up his first double double in 9 games with a 24 point, 10 rebound performance against the Pistons, but it still wasn’t enough for Dallas to pull out the win.
In the first two matchups in the season series Dirk is averaging 21 points and 5 rebounds. Expect another good performance from Dirk as he should get close to those averages.
Harrison Barnes has been one of the best free agent pickups in recent years for the Mavericks, even though it hasn’t translated into a possible playoff run. Barnes is averaging career highs of 20 points per game, and is shooting over 84 percent from the charity stripe.
While he was the 4th option in Golden State it is clear he is just cracking the ceiling of his potential. He dropped 30 points on the Timberwolves in the first meeting, but was held to just 13 in the second.
Barnes should put up good numbers, as I expect 26 points and 8 rebounds from the talented swingman.
A poor showing in the Three-Point contest shouldn’t be a worry for Wesley Matthews fans, as he should still be a key perimeter player for Dallas down the stretch.
He headed into the All-Star break off of a tough 8 point performance against Detroit, and I expect him to struggle with Andrew Wiggins guarding him most of the game.
Minnesota has been a disappointment this season, but the first year under Tom Thibodeau has shown the meteoric rise of Karl-Anthony-Towns, arguably the second best big man in the NBA.
He put up a dominant 24 point, 19 rebound performance against Denver in their last game, and with a poor interior defense by Dallas he should score at will.
He’s put up great numbers against Dallas, with a 34 point, 11 rebound performance in the win, and a 17 point, 9 rebound performance in the loss. It won’t surprise me to see him have 28 points and 13 rebounds in this contest.
Can Andrew Wiggins be stopped on offense? He has exploded in the last 2 games for the T-Wolves, scoring 40 and 41 in the contests.
Wiggins has put on an offensive clinic recently, shooting over 47% in the last 6 games, and making 50% of his 3 pointers in 5 of those 6 games.
Wiggins will keep the hot scoring up, as he won’t be stopped by Wesley MAtthews and should get 30 points, 7 rebounds, and a couple of steals.
Ricky Rubio has been racking up the high assist totals left and right, as he has 10+ in 4 of the Timberwolves last 6 games, and had a high of 16 assists 2 games ago versus the Cavs.
The first two games against Dallas he averaged almost 13 assists per game.
