Timberwolves vs. Mavericks: Predictions and odds for Western Conference Finals Game 4


The Dallas Mavericks are within striking distance of making their first NBA Finals appearance since their 2011 championship run. The Minnesota Timberwolves are facing elimination after a promising start to the playoffs.

Dallas opened the Western Conference Finals with back-to-back one-score wins in Minnesota. In Game 3, stars Luka Dončić and Kyrie Irving continued their clutch play down the stretch to help the Mavericks to a 116-107 win and 3-0 series lead.

For Minnesota, the conference finals have been gut punch after gut punch after the thrilling, back-and-forth, seven-game series win over the reigning champion Denver Nuggets. Every game has been close, but it’s consistently been the Mavericks who come out on top down the stretch.

Dallas is now one win away from a date with the Boston Celtics in the NBA Finals. Here’s everything to know about Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.
