THE STORY: Well friends, the Mavericks haven’t had much luck against the young Timberwolves this season. This will be the third matchup this season and the Wolves won the first two decisively, though Minnesota has been on a bit of a losing streak lately. (They’re also still fourth in the West, before anyone gets too amped.)
Dallas will also be without Dennis Smith Jr. today, who is out with a hip injury and probably will remain out for a bit — Rick Carlisle mentioned today that getting him healthy is the priority. And that’s good. I’d prefer we not take chances with our prize rookie in a losing season, I don’t know about y’all. Otherwise, the usual suspects should be ready to go.
Let’s go Mavs!
