The Minnesota Timberwolves and the Dallas Mavericks will play the third game of the Western Conference Finals here on Sunday night in Dallas. Everybody expected this to be one of the best series that we’ve seen all postseason and so far that has been the case throughout the first two games. As both games have been back-and-forth thrillers with Dallas coming out on top of the final minute. Now as the series shifts back to Texas, both teams will be looking for a pivotal victory here on Sunday night to get themselves one step closer to competing for an NBA championship this season. Yet another competitive matchup between Minnesota and Dallas fans will likely be on their edge of their seat throughout the entirety of the contest once again. 

The Minnesota Timberwolves were clear favorites when the Dallas Mavericks got past the Oklahoma City Thunder, and they got past the defending NBA champions the Denver Nuggets. Despite the fact that they have been playing fantastic basketball throughout the first two games of this series, they are down 2-0. They cannot find a way to slow down Luka Dončić and Anthony Edwards has struggled throughout the opening two games as well. that is something Minnesota will look to change here on Sunday night when the series heads to Dallas for the next two games as they are in a must win situation here in game three. 

Another loss would be almost insurmountable for Minnesota to overcome despite the amount of talent on their roster, especially with at least one more game to play in Dallas. Anthony Edwards will have to get back on track throughout this game on Sunday night if the Timberwolves want to have an opportunity to pick up the victory. Minnesota will also need to find a way to slow down Luka Dončić and Kyrie Irving if they want to be successful as well. This is a game that could easily go either way here on Sunday night, but one thing is for sure, you should expect a third consecutive offensive shootout between these two teams.

The Dallas Mavericks have been incredible throughout the first two games of this series and they have put up two breathtakingly excellent performances. Now they will look to replicate those performances for the third consecutive game fresh off the heels of a Luka Dončić game winning three in the final seconds during game number two of the series. With a third consecutive victory here on Sunday night in Dallas, they would put the Minnesota Timberwolves on the brink of elimination, heading into their second home game of the series with only one more win separating them from an NBA finals appearance.

Luka Dončić and Kyrie Irving have been the first couple of this series and they will put up incredible performances for a third consecutive game here on Sunday night as well. They have performed well at home throughout the season, and they will have yet another opportunity to do that here in this one. Dallas will need to find a way to limit the damage of Anthony Edwards for the third consecutive game and if they can accomplish that once again, they will come out on top here at home on Sunday night to take a commanding three games to zero lead over Minnesota.

Betting trends to consider in this matchup:

- the over of 207.5 is 6-0 between these two teams

- they have both scored over 100 in 5 of 6 matchups

- the lowest scoring game this season was 208 

I expect this to be another close and competitive matchup between the Dallas Mavericks and the Minnesota Timberwolves here in game three of the Western Conference Finals. I can easily see this game going either way, but in the end one thing I do expect is another high scoring matchup that goes over the total points line currently set at 207.5, much like the previous two games in this series has.
