10:11 p.m .: Wolves escape Dallas after tense fourth quarter

DALLAS – Game 4 of the Western Conference finals had a similar story to the first three - the Wolves had a fourth-quarter lead as the game entered the final minutes. This time, the Wolves were able to write a different ending and stave off elimination with a 105-100 victory over the Mavericks to keep their season going.

Game 5 will be back at Target Center on Thursday with Dallas ahead 3-1.

Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards played their best games of the series and were able to hit enough shots in the fourth quarter for the Wolves to survive and extend the series a little longer.

Edwards finished with 29 points, including multiple key buckets in the final minutes while Towns had an efficient night with 25 points on 9-for-13 before fouling out with 1 minute, 38 seconds to play.
