Dallas Mavericks Want to Keep the Good Run Going

The Dallas Mavericks won the semifinal series 4-2. In each of the six games with the Thunder, Luka Doncic was their best player. He recorded a double-double in five of those, while in his last three, we saw him get a triple-double each time.

What’s great for the Mavs fans is that Doncic’s teammates did alright in those games as well – P. J. Washington, Kyrie Irving, Dereck Lively, and so on.

What needs to worry them is that they have a very poor record against the Timberwolves, at least in the last couple of years. They lost eight of the last 10 Mavericks vs. Timberwolves games. The worst thing is that they haven’t won in Minnesota since 2022.

Can Minnesota Timberwolves Stop Doncic & Co?

In the semifinal series, the Minnesota Timberwolves managed to stop Nikola Jokic & Co. They beat the defending NBA champions 4-3, with two impressive wins in the last two games.

In Game 6, they beat Denver 115-70, which was the Nuggets’ worst performance in years. In Game 7, they beat the Nuggets 98-90. In total, they managed to keep Denver to under 100 points in four games of the series. No surprise there as Minnesota is the best defense in the league.

If they want to win their first-ever title in the Western Conference, they need to keep playing well defensively. So, can they stop Luka Doncic and his teammates on Wednesday?
