Doncic Finds Rhythm in First Half Vs. Wolves 

Doncic took his time settling into a groove in the first half against the Minnesota Timberwolves, winding up with 18 points as the game headed down the stretch of the third quarter on Wednesday night at the Target Center in Minneapolis.

Kyrie Irving approached 30 points in the third quarter as he led all Mavericks scorers with 26 heading down the stretch of the third and finished with 26 heading into the final stanza.

The Mavericks did not enter Wednesday night's game with the same type of size and athleticism up front as the Mavericks and their star, four-time Defensive Player of the Year center Rudy Gobert, but the backcourt duo of Doncic and Irving helped them to keep pace with eventually surmount the Wolves' challenges.

In Game One on Wednesday, Doncic and his Mavs teammates came up big when it mattered most. They shut down Anthony Edwards and the Timberwolves, holding ‘Ant-Man' to just 19 points as Doncic finished with 33 points and Irving finished with 30. Game Two and what should be a busy offseason are starting to look even more interesting than first anticipated for Doncic and the Mavs.
