The Timberwolves' closed out a four-game road trip with a fourth straight loss, 113-98 in Dallas Monday night.

Losses in 10 of their last 14 games has sent a once impressive record to a season-worst three games below .500.

Ricky Rubio, who hit his first three-pointer of the season, finished with six points, six assists and five rebounds in 26 minutes off the bench.

The Mavericks' starting backcourt combination of O.J. Mayo and Darren Collison outscored Minnesota's (Alexey Shved, Luke Ridnour) 43-14.

Transition defense has been a major issue the last two games for the Wolves, as they've allowed 63 combined fast break points.

Minnesota has allowed 100+ points in six straight games.
