DALLAS -

Nikola Pekovic scored 20 points before leaving with an injury and the short-handed Minnesota Timberwolves beat the Dallas Mavericks 90-82 Monday night.
    
Because of a rash of injuries, the Timberwolves dressed only 10 players. The 6-foot-11 Pekovic exited with 2:46 left in the third quarter with a sprained left ankle and didn't return.
    
Pekovic went 8 of 13 from the floor. Andrei Kirilenko and Alexey Shved each had 16 points for Minnesota.
    
Dallas coach Rick Carlisle was ejected after arguing a foul call with 5 minutes left. Assistant coach Jim O'Brien coached the team the rest of the way.
    
Darren Collison had 21 points and O.J. Mayo added 18 for the Mavericks, who lost their third straight.
