The Timberwolves dropped their fourth straight game on Saturday when Dorell Wright scored a career-high 30 points and set a franchise record with nine three-pointers as Golden State topped Minnesota, 104-94, at the Target Center.
“[Golden State] shot really well,” said Minnesota forward Anthony Tolliver. “That’s the danger in playing a team like that. They moved the ball around really well and they made the shots they needed. We just have to be better at making adjustments individually and as a team.”
The Wolves, who are just 1-8 on the road, will also face the 15-2 Spurs in San Antonio on Friday.
The Mavs, who will be finishing a three-game homestand tonight, won their sixth consecutive contest on Monday when Dirk Nowitzki scored a game-high 20 points and Caron Butler had 19 as Dallas topped Houston, 101-91.
“Everybody is coming into their own a little bit right now and we’re really supporting each other and we’re holding each other accountable when we need to,” Marion said of his team’s chemistry. “We’re playing as a complete team right now and we’re competing at a high level.”
Dallas has dominated the series recently, winning two straight and 15 of the last 16 contests with the lone Minnesota win in that span coming back in February of last season, a 117-108 triumph in Big D.
