Minnesota Timberwolves vs Houston Rockets – NBA: The Minnesota Timberwolves have ended the regular season with a 47-35 record
The team from Minneapolis gave a good response in Game 3 against the favourites Houston Rockets, winning the game by 121-105 with the highlight going to Jimmy Butler, with 28 points and 7 rebounds, Jeff Teague, with 23 points and 8 rebounds,
and of course Karl-Anthony Towns, with 18 points and 16 rebounds. Pushed forward by their fans and of course by how terribly they had played in Game 2, we saw the Wolves playing better basketball.
Tom Thibodeau finally managed to put some balance into this series. For Game 4, the center Justin Patton is still out.
Houston Rockets 65-17
James Harden and company unexpectedly suffered a loss on the Game 3 of this series. However, Mike D’Antoni had already alerted that this series could end up being tricky if the Houston Rockets didn’t give it the necessary importance.
From what I’ve seen of the game, I got the clear impression that the Rockets didn’t defend like we saw them defending during the regular season
and of course I could clearly see the difference both on the players’ effort and on the effects that had on the scoreline, along with their exterior game,
that is one of the biggest weapons of the team, but ended up being very lackluster, with only 15 out of 41 3-pts attempts being scored.
James Harden was the best player on the side of the Rockets with 29 points, 7 rebounds and 7 assists.
Minnesota Timberwolves vs Houston Rockets – Betting Tip and Prediction:
For this Game 4 I believe that we won’t watch a similar scenario to the one we saw on Game 3.
The Rockets know how important it is to start off these play-offs well, which means not letting it go to a Game 6 or 7.
Because of that, I think that a good performance and a victory will be part of the team’s plans for this game.
Despite thinking that these Wolves have individual quality, I believe that the best bet here is betting on the Rockets to win by 6 or more points.
