Minnesota Timberwolves 94

Dallas Mavericks 106 ot

For the second straight night the Minnesota Timberwolves failed to close, as they fell to the Dallas Mavericks 106-94 in overtime Wednesday night in Dallas.

1. Mavericks run away in overtime

After regulation finished tied at 89, the Mavericks ran away with the game in overtime. Dallas outscored Minnesota 17-5 in the extra frame to pick up the victory.

It was Dallas' fourth straight overtime game at home.

2. Towns takes over

Karl-Anthony Towns had the best night of his young NBA career. Towns did everything he could to help the Wolves, finishing with 27 points, a career-high 17 rebounds and six blocks.

Andrew Wiggins also put up good numbers with 23 points and seven boards.

3. Rubio cold, cold, cold

The biggest disappointment of the night for Minnesota had to be Ricky Rubio. He finished the game 1-of-9 from the floor and scored just two points.

Rubio did have 11 assists and grabbed two boards, but he didn't make shots at a couple of key times, especially late in the game.
