Wolves 87, Mavericks 93

Tonight's win over the Wolves in Dallas made for the Mavs' 10th consecutive victory.

AP Recap

Box Score

From Steve Aschburner/Star Tribune:
Down by as many as 13 points in the first quarter, 16 in the second and 20 in the third, the Wolves -- trailing 76-61 heading into the fourth -- were set up for the sort of stirring comeback that salvaged their game against the L.A. Clippers Saturday at Target Center.

Except, of course, these weren't the Clippers they were facing, this wasn't Minneapolis and that's a reckless way to work through a game. Rather rare way to win one, too: Rallying from 12 points down was the Wolves' biggest fourth-quarter recovery in nearly seven years and only the sixth time in 10 seasons that they had overcome a deficit of 10 points or more to win.

Foye, who sparked Saturday's comeback with 14 points in the final quarter, almost did it again. He scored 11 points in the first 8:14 of the period, getting the Wolves to within 84-80.

Mike James broke his two game scoreless streak with 10 points in tonight's game.
