The Dallas Mavericks couldn't secure a sweep last night in Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals.

What happened: The Mavericks were 3-0 in the series heading into the game, but the Minnesota Timberwolves were hungry for a win to keep their NBA Finals hopes alive.

  • The Mavericks struggled to stay in sync for most of the game, despite having forward Maxi Kleber back on the court after being out several weeks because of an injury.
  • Dereck Lively II was out because of a neck injury from Game 3.
  • Dallas had a chance to win in the final minutes, but missed several shots and had an untimely turnover that made it difficult to bounce back. The Wolves won 105-100.

What's next: Game 5 is tomorrow in Minneapolis. Tipoff is at 7:30pm.
