The Mavs 3-0 lead over the Timberwolves may not show it, but this has been a close series. It has been Irving and Doncic’s ability to close out games that has made the difference.


“Down the stretch, that’s where we make our money, man,” Irving said, per ESPN’s Tim MacMahon. “I think we have that poise now, and we’re showcasing just our skill sets out there that a lot of teams have to guard, the depth that we have. A lot of teams have to guard each one of us, and you got to pick your poison.”

Can Anthony Edwards Prevent Wolves From Getting Swept by Mavs?

Anthony Edwards attempted to save the Wolves’ season with a monster dunk in the third quarter of Game 3 sparking momentum. It was not enough to slow down Doncic and Irving in the fourth quarter.


Karl-Anthony Towns has been a non-factor in the series. KAT is shooting a dismal 13.6% from long range in the series, yet continues chucking threes. Towns is averaging over 7 three-point attempts per game in the Western Conference Finals.


“I’ve got to laugh,” Towns said after the Game 3 loss, per ESPN. “I’m putting up to 1,500 shots a day. Shot so well all playoffs, confidence extremely high. To be having these unfortunate bounces and these looks that are just not going in, it’s tough. It’s tough, for sure. I’m good confidence-wise. Just got to keep shooting.”

My Betting Pick: Dallas Completes Sweep

Minnesota has had every opportunity to win in this series but has come up short. The Mavericks will be plenty motivated to close out this series sooner rather than later.

Doncic and several key Mavs players are battling injuries. The sooner this series ends, the more rest Doncic can have ahead of the NBA Finals.


Minnesota has no answer for Dallas in the fourth quarter. Doncic did not want to talk about the NBA Finals, but all signs point to a Mavericks-Celtics matchup.

“Don’t even say it,” Doncic noted, per the Associated Press. “But it feels great. But we’ve got to think about next game. Gotta play with the same mentality. They’re not going to go away. No way.”

I am getting out the broom and taking the Mavericks to cover the spread at the sportsbook to complete the sweep.
