Dallas Mavericks Preview
The Dallas Mavericks will be hoping for a bit of luck as they split their last four games. They lost to the Miami Heat in the last game, reducing their gap with the eights seed Memphis Grizzlies, and dropping down to 36-24 for the season.
Seth Curry led the team in the defeat with 37 points on the night. He was supported by Kristaps Porzingis and Luka Doncic, who poured in 24 and 23 points, respectively.
The Mavs have started working well lately but need to focus on being consistent.
Key Player - Luka Doncic
Luka did not play the way he would have liked in the last game and will be willing to bounce back. For the season, Luka is averaging 28.6 points, 9.4 rebounds, and 8.8 assists per game. He is the main man for the Mavs, and his form will be a crucial factor in the later stages of the tournament.
Dallas Mavericks predicted lineup
Luka Doncic, Seth Curry, Tim Hardaway Jr., Dorian Finney-Smith, Kristaps Porzingis
Minnesota Timberwolves Preview
The Minnesota Timberwolves are one of the worst-performing teams right now with a record of 17-41 for the season and sitting at the 14th place in the West.
The Wolves have now lost five out of their last six games, which includes a loss to the Orlando Magic in the last game. Against Magic, D'Angelo Russell led the team with 28 points and seven assists. He was supported by Juancho Hernangomez and Malik Beasley, who added 18 and 17 points, respectively.
The Wolves will be hoping for showers of luck against the Mavericks tonight.
Key Player - D'Angelo Russell
D'Angelo Russell is the only player to watch out for in the Timberwolves' squad with Towns out due to injury. In the six games with them, Russell is averaging 25 points, 7.8 assists, and 1.3 steals a game. He has the potential to turn the tables around with a masterclass of a performance tonight.
