Dallas Mavericks vs Minnesota Timberwolves LIVE Match Preview

Match Preview – Dallas Mavericks

The Dallas Mavericks come into this game in high spirits. They defeated the Bucks twice without their star big man, Kristaps Porzingis. Luka Doncic has been in great form and is surely an MVP candidate this season.

Their new signing, Josh Richardson has taken the league by storm. He scored 23 points last time out against the Bucks.

With one of the most potent offenses in the league, the Dallas Mavericks will be looking to make it 3 wins out of 3 games against the Minnesota Timberwolves. The talented Slovenian will be the team’s star against the Timberwolves.

Match Preview – Minnesota Timberwolves

It has not been a good start for Minnesota in the NBA Preseason. They have a 0-2 record, losing both their games. They were one of the lottery teams who landed Draft pick No. 1 in the 2020 NBA draft.

The Timberwolves had an exciting off-season which saw them add number one pick, Anthony Edwards, to the roster, alongside veteran point guard Ricky Rubio. Star center, Karl Anthony-Towns had a rather emotional game last time out.

The Wolves have a strong squad going into the 2020/21 season, and head coach Ryan Saunders will be expecting them to get a positive result against the Dallas Mavericks.
