WHAT: Chance to prevent the first losing streak of the year
WHERE: Target Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota
WHEN: 7:00 p.m. CST
THE STORY: The Mavericks came away empty from their biggest test of the season against Oklahoma City, but can get on track by beating a Minnesota team that is much better than in the past. Kevin Love is putting up MVP numbers, Ricky Rubio's development is coming along nicely and there's a ton of quality role players to go along with those two. Don't let your guard down because this could be a great back-and-forth game.
