The fans at American Airlines Center will be treated to a game between the Minnesota Timberwolves and the Dallas Mavericks when they take their seats on Sunday.

ABOUT THE TIMBERWOLVES (14-26): Minnesota point guard Ricky Rubio contributed 14 points, 14 assists and four steals to Friday’s 96-86 win over the Thunder and is one of the keys to the team’s current stretch of good fortune. The 26-year-old Spaniard posted three straight double-doubles during the winning streak and is averaging 15.3 assists in that span. “I’m playing better, I’m feeling better,” Rubio told reporters. “The results are there, but I don’t want to be a four-game stand, I want to be all season long like that. It’s hard, we have a lot of games, but my expectations are high and I’m going to keep them high, because I worked hard to do it.”

ABOUT THE MAVERICKS (12-27): Dallas is getting strong play from its point guard as well, and Deron Williams keyed Thursday’s victory with 23 points and 12 assists. Williams found his shooting stroke in the last two games and combined to go 14-of-24 from the field – 5-of-8 from 3-point range – while using veteran Dirk Nowitzki as a pick-and-roll partner. Nowitzki appears fully recovered from an Achilles injury that robbed him of over a month and knocked down a combined 8-of-15 from 3-point range in the last two games.

bovada-logo-top-book currently has the Mavericks listed as TBA-point favorites versus the Timberwolves, while the game’s total is sitting at TBA according to MyBookie-White logo -70x40.

Dallas was a 113-108 winner in its last match on the road against the Suns. They covered the -2-point spread as favorites, while the total score of 221 sent OVER bettors to the payout window.

Minnesota was a 96-86 winner in its last match at home against the Thunder. They covered the +2-point spread as underdogs, while the total score of 182 sent UNDER bettors to the payout window.

The Minnesota Timberwolves brought in head coach Tom Thibodeau over the summer in large part because of his reputation as a defensive mastermind, and the young roster might finally be buying into his philosophy. The Timberwolves will try to push their winning streak to four straight when they visit the Dallas Mavericks on Sunday.

The winning streak began with a 101-92 home win over the Mavericks on Monday and continued to grow more impressive as Minnesota held a pair of playoff contenders and offensive powers down in wins over Houston and the Oklahoma City Thunder. “We’ve got a lot of guys who are putting the work in and are improving,” Thibodeau told reporters. “But we still have a long way to go. We’re nowhere where we need to be.” The Mavericks are a long way from where they want to be as well and continue to languish at or near the bottom of the standings in the Western Conference. Dallas was outrebounded 56-40 in Mexico City by the Phoenix Suns on Thursday but knocked down 15 from 3-point range and pulled out a 113-108 triumph against another team trying to stay out of the cellar.
