What you need to know about the Mavericks
Dallas will remain shorthanded as it looks for revenge from Sunday night’s loss. Star Luka Doncic is expected to miss his fifth straight game due to right ankle soreness, while Kristaps Porzingis is questionable with a sore right toe. Maxi Kleber, Reggie Bullock and Josh Green are all in the league’s health and safety protocols.
Kleber pulled down a team-high 14 rebounds in Sunday’s loss. Dallas has won two of its four games without Doncic on the court, and those two losses have come by a combined nine points. The Mavericks have covered the spread in 10 of their last 14 games against a Western Conference opponent.
What you need to know about the Timberwolves
Minnesota is suddenly one of the hottest teams in the NBA, seeking a fifth straight win on Tuesday night. The Timberwolves held on for a 111-105 win in Sunday’s matchup between these teams, led by 24 points from Karl-Anthony Towns. Guard D’Angelo Russell added 22 points, connecting on 4 of 7 from the 3-point arc.
The Timberwolves are also dealing with COVID-19 disruptions, as Anthony Edwards and Taurean Prince have both missed consecutive games. Patrick Beverley, Jarred Vanderbilt and Josh Okogie have now joined them in the health and safety protocols. Minnesota has covered the spread in four of its last five games.
