Minnesota stays alive with Game 4 road win over Dallas

Karl-Anthony Towns showcased his scoring prowess in a spectacular second-half performance, contributing 20 of his 25 total points to lead the Minnesota Timberwolves to a thrilling 105-100 victory over the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night, May 28. This crucial win allowed the Wolves to avoid a sweep in the Western Conference finals.

The talented Anthony Edwards also made a significant impact on the game, recording an impressive stat line of 29 points, 10 rebounds, and nine assists. His stellar performance helped keep the Wolves’ playoff hopes alive, marking their first trip to the conference finals in 20 years.

Despite struggling with his shooting percentage in the series leading up to this game, Towns delivered a stellar shooting display, going 9 of 13 from the field and sinking four of five attempts from beyond the arc.

Now, as the third-seeded Minnesota team prepares to head home for Game 5 on Thursday night, there is a sense of anticipation in the air as they look to level the series against the fifth-seeded Dallas Mavericks.

Although Luka Doncic put up an impressive triple-double performance with 28 points, 15 rebounds, and 10 assists, he and his teammate Kyrie Irving faced challenges with their shooting efficiency, going just 13 of 39 from the field. Surprisingly, Irving’s undefeated streak in closeout games came to an end as he finished with 16 points.

The Wolves managed to maintain their composure and held on to their lead in the final minutes of the game, securing a crucial victory. Towns, in particular, played a pivotal role in sealing the win with clutch 3-pointers and key plays down the stretch.

Despite some tense moments, including Towns fouling out late in the game, the Wolves managed to weather the storm and emerge victorious, ensuring that they are not added to the list of teams that have been swept after losing the first three games of a series.

With stellar performances from key players like Mike Conley and Rudy Gobert, as well as contributions from Jaden Hardy and Maxi Kleber, the Wolves showed resilience and determination in their quest to extend the series and push for a shot at the championship.

As the Wolves look ahead to Game 5, they are determined to continue their impressive form and make the series even more captivating as they strive to become just the fourth team to force at least six games in this intense playoff showdown.
