Recap: Minnesota vs. Dallas

Minneapolis, MN (Sports Network) - Vince Carter scored 22 points and grabbed nine boards as the Dallas Mavericks defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves, 100-77, on Sunday.

Carter shot 8-of-15 from the field, including 4-of-5 from behind the arc. Dirk Nowitzki had 16 points and nine rebounds, Brandan Wright scored 13 points and Elton Brand recorded a double-double with 10 points and 12 rebounds for the Mavericks, who are on a three-game winning streak.

"I think everyone did a great job," said Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle. "We got to keep our heads as we keep going on this trip. We owe it to ourselves and everyone who follows us, we have to keep our focus."

Derrick Williams had 18 points and nine rebounds and J.J. Barea scored 16 points off the bench for the Timberwolves, who have lost eight of their last nine games.

"We had shot after shot and we missed shot after shot," said Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman. "We were just worn out. We got to regroup on Tuesday."

The Mavericks had a 21-20 edge entering the second quarter, but opened up the period on a 17-1 run to increase their lead to 38-21 with 8:41 remaining in the half.
