Dallas Mavericks vs Minnesota Timberwolves Date and Time: Thursday, March 25, 2021 5:30 AM IST Venue: Target Center, Minneapolis, MN. Prediction: Dallas Mavericks Bookmaker: 1xbet
The Minnesota Timberwolves surprised a lot of people in the league when they defeated the Portland Trail Blazers, the Phoenix Suns and blew away the New Orleans Pelicans by 30 points, all in the same week.
However, wins have been too far and between for the Minnesota Timberwolves this season, as they have the fewest victories of any team in the league this campaign. They hold the worst record in the league – 10-33 – and their fortunes are unlikely to improve with a few isolated victories.
The Minnesota Timberwolves are looking to build around Karl-Anthony Towns, Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell. Veteran guard Ricky Rubio has been good for the team in the few games he has played.
But a rare silver lining for the Minnesota Timberwolves has been their rookie Anthony Edwards. He has exploded since debuting in the league and is on course to winning the Rookie of the Year award.
In other news, Malik Beasley is facing a 12-game suspension ever since his guilty verdict.
The Dallas Mavericks are trying their best to grab a decent playoff seed in their Conference. They are currently eighth in the standings, with the Golden State Warriors right behind them with the same number of wins.
Luka Doncic and co. were dealing with a lot of injuries earlier in the season but seem to have found their rhythm and consistency now.
The Dallas Mavericks have to capitalise on the slumps and unfortunate injuries plaguing other teams. They face a relatively easy schedule going forward, as their next seven games are against teams with a below .500 record on the season.
Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis are the key players for the Dallas Mavericks, combining for nearly 50 points per outing. If they continue their good performances in the remainder of the regular season, the Dallas Mavericks will fancy their chances of getting a good seeding in the postseason.
The Dallas Mavericks are the overwhelming favorites to win this game. The Minnesota Timberwolves are inevitably out of playoff contention and could be more interested in rebuilding their roster. If their already abysmal season gets from bad to worse, they could get a high draft pick in the upcoming draft.
In their previous meeting this season, Doncic and Porzingis combined for 53 points to hold off the Minnesota Timberwolves despite Malik Beasley exploding for 30 points. Rookie Anthony Edwards had a good game that night, posting 22 points, two rebounds and four assists to go with two blocks and as many steals.
