Dallas ends a three-game road trip against Minnesota on Friday night. The Timberwolves, one of the most exciting young teams in the NBA, are getting star PF Kevin Love back from a two-game suspension.
The Dallas Mavericks will wrap up a three-game road trip at Minnesota on Friday, a team they've struggled against this season, losing their last two games against the Timberwolves.
The Timberwolves are getting All-Star PF Kevin Love back from a two-game suspension for what the NBA deemed a flagrant "kick" of a prone Luis Scola earlier in the week.
Love has been a match-up nightmare for the Mavericks aging front-court, racking up 56 points and 28 rebounds in Minnesota's two victories over Dallas this season.
The Mavericks had won 18 of 19 games against Minnesota dating back to March of last season.
The Timberwolves snapped Dallas' nine-game winning streak at the Target Center with a 99-82 win on New Year's Day, and then beat Dallas 105-90 in American Airlines Arena on January 25.
