Wolves 93, Mavericks 94

The Wolves entered Saturday night's game at Dallas with an 8-11 record against teams below .500 and 14-13 against teams above .500.

From Rick Alonzo/Pioneer Press:
They weren't expected to go on the road and beat the team with the best record in the NBA (39-9), so there's little shame in losing this game, especially with the way the Wolves fought back down the stretch after trailing by 17 points in the third quarter and nine with fewer than five minutes left.

In the end, the Wolves were left questioning the officiating, wondering why they didn't get a foul called on a key sequence in the final minute.

Garnett after the game:
"I tried to be aggressive in the second half," he said. "These last couple games, I've been playing like crap."
