Mavericks, Timberwolves meet in key West clash

MINNEAPOLIS -- When the Dallas Mavericks and Minnesota Timberwolves parted for the All-Star break, the two had nearly identical records and were looking up at several teams for a possible playoff spot.

Dallas and Minnesota reconvene against each other Friday, with each team still eyeing the playoffs. The teams saw Thursday's trade deadline differently and test out their approach as the season resumes.

The Mavericks were one of the few teams to make a move, sending center Andrew Bogut, swingman Justin Anderson and a first-round pick to the Philadelphia 76ers. Dallas received center Nerlens Noel, the former sixth-overall pick in the 2013 draft who has dealt with injuries and was stuck behind emerging talent Joel Embiid in Philadelphia.
