It's been the Luka Doncic show in Dallas this season, but it was the no-name players who led the Mavericks to a fourth-quarter rally and 121-114 win over the visiting Timberwolves Wednesday night. 

Dwight Powell scored 24 points on 9-of-9 shooting and Jalen Brunson scored 14 of his 16 points in the fourth quarter to fuel the come-from-behind a win. Minnesota led by four going into the final dozen minutes, then got outscored 41-30 in the fourth to drop to .500 on the season (10-10). 

Dallas (15-6) is one of the biggest surprises in the NBA and is in fourth in the Western Conference. Even at .500, the Wolves sit in seventh place. 

Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins each scored 26 points while Robert Covington added 22 for the Wolves. 

"We've got to find consistency playing for 48 (minutes)," Towns said, via ESPN. 

Up next: Wolves at Oklahoma City, Friday at 7 p.m.
