The Houston Rockets recently lost 20 games in a row – and Minnesota is still in last place in the Western Conference. The T’Wolves showed some life in wins over Portland and Phoenix, but have dropped their last two.
Wednesday looks like an easy one for the Mavericks, especially coming off one of their best offensive outings of the season on Sunday, and with the extra day off. These are the games that scare you though.
Dallas is just 4-3 since the all-star break, and they’re looking for some consistency. A win over Minnesota on Wednesday would break the cycle of alternating wins and losses over the last six games.
We all know the Mavs go as Luka Doncic does. The perennial MVP candidate has been great lately, going for 37+ points in three straight games. The Timberwolves are also the worst team in the league defensively vs. the PG position.
What Dallas will look for on Wednesday is a bigger game from their post players, specifically Kristaps Porzingis, who has been held under a dozen points for three straight contests.
There was a time when Minnesota was the worst team in the league vs. opposing bigs. That has gotten better with the return of Karl-Anthony Towns, but the T’Wolves also allowed 17 rebounds to OKC center Moses Brown on Monday.
Minnesota has no longer been a complete pushover, going 3-4 since the all-star break. That includes wins at New Orleans, vs. Portland, and at Phoenix – quality teams.
The Timberwolves haven’t looked good the last two though. That started with the Suns getting revenge in a 101-113 win on the back to back, but the real stickler was the 112-103 home loss to OKC on Monday even when Minnesota had 2 days off before.
Dallas has played better vs. the center the last four games, but they’ve also had two games each against Ivica Zubac and Enes Kanter. Minnesota’s success on Wednesday relies on Towns, who has a 33+ point double double in two of the last three.
The Timberwolves have also been getting solid production from rookie Anthony Edwards lately. He had a 42 point outing in the win over the Suns, but Dallas is 3rd best at defending opposing SGs.

Free Dallas Mavericks vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
This one could very easily get ugly in a Dallas blowout. Doncic is playing out of this world (per usual) and the Mavericks are fresh having had the last two nights off.
Minnesota has played well against some tough competition lately though. They’ve got a dominant big man, which usually gives Dallas fits, a competent PG, and a flashy rookie.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Timberwolves +8
The Timberwolves might not win this one, but +8 is a lot to give.
