DALLAS (AP) Chandler Parsons scored 29 points and the Dallas Mavericks started fast in their first game since getting booed by the home crowd during a bad opening half, beating the Minnesota Timberwolves 128-101 Sunday night.

Parsons scored 13 straight Dallas points in a stretch covering the second and third quarters to help the Mavericks restore a 20-point lead they built in the first 11 minutes of their sixth straight victory against Minnesota.

Two nights after scoring 27 points to help Dallas rally from 23 down in the second quarter of an overtime victory against Denver, Parsons was 10 of 15 from the field, made four of seven from 3-point range and hit all five of his free throws.

Shabazz Muhammad scored 24 points to lead the Timberwolves, who dropped to 1-10 on the second night of a back-to-back after rallying for a win at New Orleans.
