Luka Doncic, Kyrie Irving combine for 69 points as Mavs defeat Wolves

Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving put on a scoring clinic on Sunday night to lead the Dallas Mavericks to a victory over the No. 1 seed in the West, the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Doncic had 34 points, 8 rebounds and 6 assists to continue his push for this season's MVP award, while Irving scored 35 points built on 6 three-pointers, including two late threes in the fourth quarter to steal the game from Minnesota.

The Wolves were leading 106-100 with four minutes left before Irving made the game-tying and go-ahead three-pointers with 2:59 and 2:05 remaining in the contest.

Dallas squeezed out this win despite playing severely undersized, with only one big in Dwight Powell playing all game against Minnesota's towering frontcourt. The Mavs were without 7-foot rookie Dereck Lively II (sprained right ankle) and German center Maxi Kleber (left toe dislocation).

It was an important win for the Mavs, who lost the first two meetings between the two teams. They currently have the sixth-best record in the Western Conference (22-15).

Anthony Edwards was spectacular yet again for the Wolves, finishing with 36 points and 10 rebounds despite the loss. Karl-Anthony Towns added 24 and 7, while Rudy Gobert pulled down 17 boards as the Wolves dropped to 25-10 for the season. Minnesota is still sitting in first place in the West, but the Denver Nuggets are just one game back.
