Dallas’ first crowd home win over Minnesota
The Dallas Mavericks won in front of home fans who visited the stadium for the first time in a long time 안전놀이터
Dallas beat Minnesota Timberwolves 127-122 at the American Airlines Center on the 9th (Korea time). With the victory, the team won 11-14. Minnesota is 6-18.
Dallas took the mood from the beginning. He took a big lead with 42-22 from the first quarter, and since then, he has consistently taken a lead of more than 10 points, overwhelming his opponent. He once took the lead by 25 points in the second quarter.
It seemed to end easily as it is. But Minnesota didn’t just back down either. It closed the gap by chasing at the last minute of the fourth quarter. Malik Beasley’s three-pointer with 4:59 left to chase a gap of 112-103, 9 points. Beasley made a layup shot with 50.8 seconds left, narrowing the gap to 123-120.
He is on the verge of being defeated in front of home fans. Fortunately, I was able to avoid rough. Dallas, who had been keeping the lead with Doncic’s consecutive goals, breathed again with Josh Richardson’s fade-away shot with 27.7 seconds left. He succeeded in defending and maintained a five-point lead, virtually confirming his victory. Minnesota went on a foul operation, but there was not enough time.
Doncic scored 14 points in the fourth quarter alone, scoring 26 points, eight rebounds, and five assists. Christophe Porzingis also achieved a double with 27 points and 13 rebounds. Tim Hardaway Jr. scored 24 points.
Minnesota struggled with Beasley scoring 30 points, Anthony Edwards scoring 22 and Josh Okoji scoring 11 points, but it was not enough.
On the same day, Mavericks invited 1,500 “essential personnel” including medical staff to the stadium for free. It was his first home game of the season. It wasn’t a big number, but I had a meaningful day winning in front of them.
