The Dallas Mavericks take on the Minnesota Timberwolves on Dec. 19 as they look to get back in the win column. Luka Doncic and Spencer Dinwiddie both missed Saturday’s game, which opened the door for Kemba Walker to explode. The four-time All-Star scored 32 points as he proved he deserves to be part of the rotation moving forward.
Minnesota has won two straight, but they are on the second night of a back-to-back set as the Mavericks settle in for two games in Minneapolis. Anthony Edwards had 37 points as the Wolves rolled over the Bulls on Sunday.
Injuries could be the story of the game on Monday night as Luka Doncic enters questionable and Karl-Anthony Towns will not play. Both teams will be shorthanded, so who will take advantage? Here is a look at the odds, how to watch, and more on the Dec. 19 showdown.
