The Dallas Mavericks defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night, despite superstar Luka Doncic scoring just 15 points and making just five of his 17 field-goal attempts. It was a fantastic team win in a crucial game in the standings. The Mavs have won two straight and can all but clinch a playoff berth with a victory on Friday night.

Minnesota is hungry for revenge and looking to knot the season series with Dallas at two games apiece. The Timberwolves are just 1.0 game back of the Nuggets for sixth in the Western Conference. Both teams want to avoid the play-in tournament, so every game matters during the stretch run.

Monday’s game had a playoff feel and this one should be no different, so here is a look at how to watch, the odds, and more as the Mavs take on the Timberwolves.

Dallas Mavericks at Minnesota Timberwolves predictions

Slowing down Luka Doncic in two straight contests is no easy task. The 23-year-old superstar is going to come out with a bit of extra fire on Friday night, and that could be bad news for the Timberwolves. Expect the Mavs superstar to drop 30 and produce his first triple-double since Feb. 6 as he leads his team to victory.

The game will go under 227 as both teams have underrated defenses this season.

Minnesota is going to bring the fight on their home floor. Expect Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards to both have monster nights as they look to snap their two-game losing skid, but Doncic and the Mavericks will be too much on March 25.

Dallas Mavericks supporters will not want to miss any game down the stretch as the team fights for homecourt in the first round. Expect an exciting game on Friday night that will feel like the playoffs. Do not miss it.
