View all 's tips »
This is a preview of the game between the Minnesota Timberwolves & Dallas Mavericks in the NBA.
The Dallas Mavericks have struggled early on in the campaign like many of the big teams such as Celtics and Lakers, but have since resurrected their fortunes, getting their first win after going down 0-3.
The Mavericks added more firepower to their lineup in addition to what they already have with the likes of Vince Carter and Lamar Odom, who gives them veteran experience and players who can handle crunch time situation, much like they did in their last game win against Toronto.
Nowitzki, Terry and Kidd will continue to do what they do best, and it's the primary reason why they won the championship last season, and with a great second unit now on the floor, it will only drive further impetus for the Mavericks to continue building on their form.
Minnesota have started out the season in fine fashion, showing glimpses of what they can do, however, haven't been able to convert that into victory with just Beasley and Love being the consistent performers on this team.
Ricky Rubio has turned out to be a great playmaker, with some absolutely outstanding vision in passing, bringing a European way of breaking down defenses and now only need to improve his scoring, if he is to be considered a success in this league.
Minnesota's side kick players aren't as good as Dallas, so when the second team is on the floor, is where this game will be potentially lost for the Wolves.
Dallas need to get their season going, and after getting the victory against Toronto, victory against a struggling Minnesota team, should be another W that they should be ready to check in the book.
Dallas to get the victory with a -2 handicap on the points margin.
