NBA Playoff Betting: Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Houston Rockets

Timberwolves Blast Rockets Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Houston Rockets - 4/23/18 NBA Pick, Odds, and Prediction
| 24 April, 2018, 04:19

The Wolves' two All-Stars finally showed up to the series in Game 3. "That's why I was anxious the whole time about resting guys, doing this, getting out of rhythm". The Rockets will need Gordon - or another breakout performance from Gerald Green - in order to reclaim control of this series.

The Houston Rockets are desperate to rediscover their best form against the Minnesota Timberwolves in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

As it turns out, Oklahoma City has not only failed to come back from a 3-1 series deficit, in their history, they've ended up going down in five games in each of the four instances in which they've fallen 3-1.

During the regular season, the Rockets lost by double digits only eight times.

"It's been a long time", Rockets superstar James Harden said of the team being in a good rhythm. He's averaging 17 points, six rebounds, three assists, and the occasional block and steal.


Harden shifted the focus to defense when asked how the Rockets can regain their offensive rhythm in the middle of a playoff series.

"It's pretty simple: Play hard the entire game", Harden added. The Rockets were weak on both ends of the floor and that proved to be costly. However, the future Hall of Fame playmakers have yet to both perform well in the same playoff game. If it's high - if a team has way more assists than turnovers - the night probably belongs to them.

But it might have been Rose that got the Target Center most excited, showing burst and athleticism not often seen since his knees started failing him en route to 17 points in just 21 minutes off the bench. Harden had a terrible shooting performance in Game 2 (2-of-18 from the floor), but Paul starred with 27 points and eight assists.

"We've kind of like traded off, right?" It's not necessarily just me and Chris. After all, this feels like it's going seven games, doesn't it? Minnesota shot an even 50 percent from the field and drained 15 of 27 three point attempts: they sank just nine triples in the first two games combined.
