The Wolves beat the Mavericks in Dallas, 90-82 Monday night. Nikola Pekovic scored 20 points but left in the third quarter with a sprained ankle.
Add Pekovic to an injury list that includes Kevin Love, Ricky Rubio, Brandon Roy, J.J. Barea and Chase Budinger.
The win boosted Minnesota’s record to 5-and-2. Not bad considering they’re without 6 of their top 7 players.
