The Minnesota Timberwolves will attempt to stave off elimination from the 2024 NBA playoffs when they host the Dallas Mavericks in Game 5 of the Western Conference finals on Thursday at the Target Center in Minneapolis.

Meanwhile, the Mavericks will look to clinch just the third trip to the NBA Finals in franchise history with a victory in Game 5. 

Tipoff on Thursday is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. ET. Minnesota is listed as a 4.5-point favorite in the latest Timberwolves vs. Mavericks odds via SportsLine consensus, while the over/under for total points scored is 209.5.

Why the Timberwolves can cover 

Karl-Anthony Towns regained his shooting stroke on Tuesday night. Towns, who shot 41.6% from 3-point land during the regular season, shot just 13.6% (3-of-22) from beyond the 3-point line over the first three games of the series. But in Game 4, he made 4-of-5 3-pointers and helped Minnesota shoot 45.8% (11-of-24) from 3-point land.

In addition, the Timberwolves have one of the best players in the league in Anthony Edwards. The former No. 1 overall pick had the best season of his career, averaging 25.9 points on 46.1% shooting from the field during the regular season. For his efforts, he was named to the All-NBA second team. See which team to pick here.

Why the Mavericks can cover 

Luka Doncic has been an elite playmaker for Dallas during the playoffs. In the postseason the do-it-all point guard has led all players in assists, averaging 9.1 per game. He also ranks eighth in scoring (28.3 points per game) and ninth in rebounding (9.6). In Game 4 on Tuesday he had a triple-double, with 28 points, 15 rebounds and 10 assists.

Led by Doncic and Kyrie Irving, the Mavericks have excelled in clutch situations this season. Dallas owned the NBA's second-best clutch record (23-9) and the best clutch offense (127.1 points per 100 possessions) during the regular season. So far in this series against Minnesota, the Mavericks have outscored the Timberwolves 32-21 in the final three minutes of the four games. See which team to pick here.
