Butler, balanced Wolves pull away from Mavs for 111-87 win

DALLAS (AP) Cross another Texas losing streak off the list for the surging Minnesota Timberwolves.

Jimmy Butler led a balanced set of starters with 21 points and the Timberwolves ended a five-game skid in Dallas with a 111-87 victory over the Mavericks on Friday night.

Andrew Wiggins added 19 points for the Timberwolves. They won in Dallas for the first time since March 19, 2014, two nights after getting their first win over San Antonio since just about the same time - April 8, 2014. The losing streak against the Spurs was 12 games.
