The Minnesota Timberwolves and Dallas Mavericks will play in the NBA regular season on May 17. We offer you a forecast for this match.
"Wolves" at the end of the season slightly improved their position and even rose to the thirteenth place in the West, but there is no fundamental difference in this. The team is still one of the weakest in the league, especially defensively. Only Washington missed more than Minnesota, but at least there is someone to play in the attack.
But Dallas is doing great. The team looks as powerful as possible and almost guaranteed itself fifth place in the West. This means that it is waiting for him in the first round of "Denver". Admittedly, this is not the worst scenario, especially considering the fact that it was possible to play with the same "Clippers".
Injuries and disqualifications:
- Culver (ankle injury), Beasley (muscle injury) – Minnesota. Reddick (heel injury), Terry (personal reasons) - Dallas.
Statistics and figures:
- Minnesota has won only twice out of its last seven games;
- Dallas has just two losses in ten games;
- Dallas has won four of its last five games against Minnesota.
Dallas has been looking really good lately. Personally, we expect the Mavericks to perform well in the playoffs, and in the game against Minnesota, our forecast is quite clear and a little banal. "Dallas" will win with a small minus handicap.
