Not having Dereck Lively is huge for the Mavericks.

The Timberwolves should be able to find plenty more easy buckets in the paint with Lively and Maxi Kleber both not likely to play. Obviously, the Wolves' shooting woes have been abysmal and are the reason they're trailing 3-0.

Their defense hasn't been much better, either. Lively has been playing much better than Daniel Gafford in this series, and now the Mavs will be without two of their top three big men.

We know what Luka Doncic and Kyrie Irving are going to do, so that's why I am staying away from a side here. I'm rolling with the Wolves' team total in a win-or-go-home game.
