Butler leads balanced Timberwolves over Mavericks

(TSX / STATS) -- DALLAS -- After limping through a first half devoid of energy and focus, the message delivered by Minnesota Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau in the locker room was rather simple.

"Try," he said. "We knew we played poorly in the first half. We were disappointed in the way we played. The second half, the biggest adjustment wasn't schematic, it was bringing the right intensity to the game."

The Timberwolves (10-5) looked like the team they've been all season in storming back from a 14-point deficit to rout the Dallas Mavericks 111-87 Friday night at American Airlines Center.
