The first three games in this series cleared this line. It took nine missed Timberwolves free throws and cold shooting nights from Luka Doncic, Kyrie Irving, and P.J. Washington for the game total to go under this number on Tuesday.

Minnesota got an ultra-efficient 25 points from Karl-Anthony Towns, and they still only won by five points. As good as this Timberwolves team is defensively, we can’t see them holding Irving and Doncic to 15-for-39 from the field again.

Dallas has been phenomenal on the road all playoffs, including winning their last four. They are great value to close this series out on Thursday night.

Minnesota Timberwolves News, Injury Report, Schedule: Pressure On At Home

The Minnesota Timberwolves are aiming to become the first team in NBA history to win a series from 3-0 down. With homecourt advantage and only scoring eight points fewer than the Mavericks through the first four games, the Timberwolves have every reason to be confident heading into Game Five.

Karl-Anthony Towns finally found his shot in the second half of Game Four. The Minnesota defense was phenomenal, holding the Mavericks to 100 points. That’s Dallas’ third-lowest total over their last 14 games.

The Timberwolves have already lost two games to the Mavericks at Target Center this series – how will that impact their confidence for Thursday’s win-or-go-home showdown?

Dallas Mavericks News, Injury Report, Schedule: Margin For Error

Dallas obviously wanted to wrap this up in four. They would love to earn themselves an extra break by avoiding a Game Six. Winning in Minnesota is going to be tough, but the Mavericks have already done it twice this series and have two proven road playoff performers in Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving.

There is a margin for error, though, which can be viewed as a reason to take their foot off the gas or a way to relax under the high stakes of postseason basketball.

Dallas didn’t play markedly worse in Game Four. They were a few role-player shots falling from completing the sweep. Yes, Anthony Edwards slowed down Doncic, but it’s a big ask to do that two games in a row.

Timberwolves vs Mavericks H2H: Minnesota Records First-Ever Playoff Win Over Dallas

The Dallas Mavericks have a 77-59 advantage over the Minnesota Timberwolves in the regular season. Minnesota’s win on Tuesday was their first-ever playoff win against the Dallas Mavericks and gives them a sniff of a historic comeback having lost the first three games.

Minnesota has won four of the last five regular-season contests. They have also been very competitive in each of the four games so far in this series.
