Mavericks visit Timberwolves, look to clinch No. 5 seed in West

The Dallas Mavericks will clinch the No. 5 seed in the NBA's Western Conference on Sunday with a win over the Minnesota Timberwolves in Minneapolis.

Dallas (42-29) looks to close its regular season by winning seven of its last eight games. The Mavericks' current run, combined with Portland's one-point loss Thursday in Phoenix, put Dallas in control of its pursuit of fifth in the West.

Riding a three-game winning streak, the Mavericks moved a game ahead of Portland with a 114-110 win Friday over Toronto, holding off a late-game Raptors rally. Luka Doncic recorded his 11th triple-double of the season with 20 points, 11 assists and 10 rebounds, while Kristaps Porzingis added 21 points and 10 rebounds.
