The NBA Playoffs continued on Tuesday with Game 4 of the Western Conference Finals between the Minnesota Timberwolves and Dallas Mavericks.

Dallas held a 3-0 series lead heading into its home matchup against Minnesota. The hope for Luka Doncic and Co. was that they could close out this series and set up an NBA Finals matchup with the Eastern Conference champion Boston Celtics.

That did not come to fruition. Instead, Karl-Anthony Towns and Anthony Edwards came up huge down the stretch. Minnesota forced Game 5 with a 105-100 victory. Here are 10 winners and losers from Tuesday’s action in the NBA Playoffs.
