The Dallas Mavericks are playing some of their best ball of the season right now, which includes winning their last five games by an average of 10.6 points. The Minnesota Timberwolves have played better ball as of late, but they've still lost 13 of their last 16 games and aren't covering numbers. The Timberwolves are losing their last five games by an average of 6.2 points and lose at home by an average of 7.5 points. I'll lay the chalk with the Mavericks.
