Love, Rubio lead T-wolves over Mavs, 123-122 in OT
Question of the Day
Ellis finished with 22 points, including 15 in the fourth quarter and overtime. Shawn Marion had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and Sam Dalembert had 14 boards.
Early in the game, the Dallas defense didn’t look anything like a unit that had held consecutive teams to less than 40-percent shooting. Minnesota was at 69 percent after Dieng hit a hook shot to give the Timberwolves their biggest lead at 50-28 early in the second quarter.
The Mavericks had six of their 16 turnovers in the first quarter, and several led to breakaway baskets for Brewer.
“They were aggressive. We were sloppy,” Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. “The first quarter was really the biggest factor in the game.”
The Mavericks forced four straight misses to spark a 24-5 run that got them back in the game. Nowitzki opened the spurt with a jumper, and Jae Crowder finished it with a dunk after a steal by Jose Calderon to make it 55-52.
NOTES: Rubio had seven assists in the first quarter, one more than Dallas as a team. Minnesota had 12 for the quarter. … Ellis was called for a technical after getting his fourth foul in the third quarter. Referee Monty McCutchen screamed at Ellis that he had been warned four times as Ellis walked to the Dallas bench.
