What to Know

The Dallas Mavericks have enjoyed the comforts of home their last two games, but now they must head out on the road. They will square off against the Minnesota Timberwolves at 8 p.m. ET Friday at Target Center. The Mavericks will be strutting in after a win while Minnesota will be stumbling in from a defeat.

Dallas didn’t have too much trouble with the Houston Rockets at home on Wednesday as they won 110-91. Dallas can attribute much of their success to point guard Spencer Dinwiddie, who had 26 points and six assists.

Meanwhile, Minnesota came up short against the Phoenix Suns on Wednesday, falling 125-116. Minnesota was up 64-51 at the end of the half but couldn’t hold on to the lead. Small forward Anthony Edwards (19 points) was the top scorer for the Timberwolves.

The Mavericks are expected to lose this next one by 4. They are currently two-for-two against the spread in their most recent games, however, a trend bettors might want to take into account.

Dallas’ victory brought them up to 45-28 while Minnesota’s loss pulled them down to 42-32. A pair of numbers to keep in mind before tip-off: Dallas ranks second in the league when it comes to points allowed per game, with only 104 on average. But the Timberwolves enter the matchup with 115.4 points per game on average, which is the best in the league. We’ll see which of these strengths — offense or defense — will win out.
