DALLAS -- Ricky Rubio hasnt given up on the idea of Minnesota making the playoffs. AJ McCarron Jersey . The case is a little easier to make after the Timberwolves avoided what would have been a disastrous loss in Dallas. Rubio had a triple-double, Kevin Love scored the last of his 35 points with the go-ahead basket late in overtime, and the Timberwolves hung on for a 123-122 victory over the Mavericks on Wednesday night after blowing several leads. Minnesota broke a six-game stretch of alternating wins and losses with a second straight victory to move two games over .500 for the first time since Nov. 23. The Timberwolves (34-32) are still 5 1/2 games behind Dallas and Memphis for the final playoff spot in the Western Conference with 16 games to go. But at least they didnt lose after squandering a 22-point lead in the first half and a 13-point edge with 7 minutes to go. "It was a big game against a tough team who is fighting for the playoffs, too," said Rubio, who had 22 points, 15 assists and 10 rebounds for his third career triple-double. "We want to try to catch up to them." Dirk Nowitzki scored 27 for Dallas and put the Mavericks ahead with a fadeaway over Love with 33 seconds left in overtime before Love scored on a jump hook with 17 seconds to go. Nowitzki missed on another try over Love in the final seconds as the Mavericks saw a three-game winning streak end and missed a chance to move a season-high 15 games over .500. "This is a tough one," said Nowitzki, who had his second straight tough shooting night at 11 of 27. "This feels like a playoff loss. It really does. I dont even know what to say." Monta Ellis scored the last 12 Dallas points of regulation on a three-point play and three consecutive 3-pointers, the last one giving the Mavericks their first lead since early in the first quarter at 113-111. Rubio answered with a pair of free throws for the tie with 50 seconds left. Nowitzki missed a 3-pointer to finish his 0-for-5 shooting in the fourth quarter, but Kevin Martin missed from just inside the arc and Robbie Hummel missed from just outside it for Minnesota. Dallas Devin Harris was short on a mid-court heave at the buzzer in regulation. "We knew they were going to go on a run," said Love, who was 11 of 20 from the field and 11 of 14 from the line. "We will take the win, whether it is in regulation or overtime." Nowitzki hit his first shot of overtime from the baseline and added a 3-pointer for a 120-115 lead, but the Timberwolves went back in front by a point on a reverse layup from Rubio and four free throws from Love. All five Minnesota starters were in double figures. Martin scored 19, Corey Brewer had 11 of his 13 points during Minnesotas fast start in the first quarter and Gorgui Dieng had 10 points and 11 rebounds. Former Dallas guard J.J. Barea had 15 points. Ellis finished with 22 points, including 15 in the fourth quarter and overtime. Shawn Marion had 16 points and 11 rebounds, and Sam Dalembert had 14 boards. Early in the game, the Dallas defence didnt look anything like a unit that had held consecutive teams to less than 40-per cent shooting. Minnesota was at 69 per cent after Dieng hit a hook shot to give the Timberwolves their biggest lead at 50-28 early in the second quarter. The Mavericks had six of their 16 turnovers in the first quarter, and several led to breakaway baskets for Brewer. "They were aggressive. We were sloppy," Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. "The first quarter was really the biggest factor in the game." The Mavericks forced four straight misses to spark a 24-5 run that got them back in the game. Nowitzki opened the spurt with a jumper, and Jae Crowder finished it with a dunk after a steal by Jose Calderon to make it 55-52. NOTES: Rubio had seven assists in the first quarter, one more than Dallas as a team. Minnesota had 12 for the quarter. ... Ellis was called for a technical after getting his fourth foul in the third quarter. Referee Monty McCutchen screamed at Ellis that he had been warned four times as Ellis walked to the Dallas bench. Jeff Driskel Jersey .com) - Delon Wright scored 17 points and No. Geno Atkins Jersey . Bobrovsky posted a 2-0-1 record with a 1.58 goals-against average and .950 save percentage to help the Blue Jackets (35-26-6) gain five of a possible six points last week. He capped the week by making 32 saves and stopping 2-of-4 shootout attempts in a 2-1 win over the Minnesota Wild on Saturday. http://www.officialbengalsprofanatics.com/Black-Friday-Michael-Johnson-Jersey/ . TSN Hockey Insider Bob McKenzie tweeted on Monday that Hemsky will be going to market as an unrestricted free agent on July 1. BARCELONA, Spain -- Barcelona lost its second straight game without injured star Lionel Messi when Athletic Bilbao handed the defending Spanish league champions a 1-0 loss Sunday at San Mames. Forward Iker Muniain scored the winner in the 70th minute after Bilbaos incessant pressure recovered the ball and sparked a counterattack inside Barcelonas half. Neymar was once again tagged to pick up Messis goal-scoring duties, but when he wasnt frustrated by slippery footing Bilbaos defence got the better of him. Barcelona was left level on points with Atletico Madrid and three points ahead of Real Madrid after both title rivals won on Saturday. Barcelonas first defeat in the domestic league following 13 wins and one draw came five days after it lost 2-1 at 10-man Ajax in the Champions League. Barcelona hadnt suffered consecutive defeats since March. "When you lose there are always doubts and questions that arise, but one game had nothing to do with the other," Barcelona midfielder Andres Iniesta said. "We have to correct our mistakes. Its a loss. That can happen. We shouldnt see it any other way." Gerardo Martinos team has won once and lost twice since Messi suffered a left hamstring injury that will likely keep him out until January. And while Barcelona sputters, Atletico and Madrid keep on churning out wins. "This team isnt used to losing two consecutive games," Martino said. "And we came here with the intention of rebounding from the first loss, so its a shame not to win after we did enough to deserve it. Until Bilbao scored we were the better side, controlling the ball and creating chances for long stretches. After their goal it was a different game." Also on Sunday, Valencia beat 10-man Osasuna 3-0, Sevilla won 2-1 at Granada, and Rayo Vallecano drew 2-2 at Real Betis. The match was billed as perhaps the toughest test of the season for Barcelona coming off its first setback in 21 games and without the injured Messi, goalkeeper Victor Valdes, and defenders Dani Alves, Carles Puyol and Jordi Alba. And so it proved to be as Bilbao stayed undefeated in seven games at its new San Mames Stadium. The victory lifted it into fourth place and in the final Champions League spot. Like so many times in past meetings between the Basque and Catalan clubs, the pace remained frenetic and intense with the ball constantly changing sides until Bilbao took charge late as Barcelona faded after falling behind. Carlos Dunlap Jersey. "I think we played a complete game from start to finish. I am very happy to have done my part to get the win by scoring the goal," said the 20-year-old Muniain, who added that Bilbao was aided by the fact that Barcelona had played a game midweek and arrived with wearier legs. Early on, Barcelona coolly worked its way through Bilbaos pressure and just past the 10-minute mark deployed a number of one-touch passes in a series of attacks that went unrewarded. Neymar first had his strike palmed over the bar by Bilbao goalkeeper Gorka Iraizoz in the 12th before Iniesta spoiled a back-heeled flip by Sergio Busquets by firing wide. Then it was Bilbaos turn and Muniain had a golden chance to put the hosts ahead in the 29th, but he barely made contact on a deflected cross that reached him with only goalie Jose Pinto to beat. Barcelona looked to hit Bilbao on the break, but Neymar slipped several times while trying to dribble and had to change his shoes in the 34th. The new boots still didnt help the Brazil striker in the 50th when he wasted Cesc Fabregas pass by sailing his shot high, and his frustration at Carlos Gurpeguis marking boiled over and soon earned Neymar a yellow card when he retaliated. Neymar then drew a foul from Andre Iturraspe when he tackled the Brazilian from behind with only Iraizoz left. Barcelona clamoured for a red card, but the referee settled for yellow. Neymar curled the resulting free kick by the near post in the 59th. Bilbao kept up its pressure and it finally paid off when Ander Herrera stole the ball and passed to Markel Susaeta who crossed for the streaking Muniain to stab in the goal before Barcelona could recover in defence. Barcelona never threatened to equalize, and Bilbao striker Gaizka Toquero almost added a second goal when he headed into the body of Pinto in the 74th. "We said all week that we would play with the same intensity as always," Toquero said. "We pressured them well, stole a good number of balls and didnt let them play their game." Valencia forward Jonas scored a hat trick after Osasuna saw Patxi Punal sent off with a direct red for a low tackle on Dani Parejo. Sevilla striker Carlos Bacca scored one goal and set up Kevin Gameiros 86th-minute winner. Rayos Alberto Bueno scored a brace to help his team escape the relegation zone with the draw that kept Betis in last place.
