Houston Rockets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves 4/21/18, Prediction & Odds

Utah is taking a 2-1 lead into their Western Conference first-round series against Oklahoma City on Monday night, and Gobert is probably as responsible for the Jazz being in that position than anyone. They followed that performance up with an equally thrilling one in their home playoff opener, beating the Houston Rockets in Game 3, 121-105.

It's amusing how one game can completely change a playoff series as the Rockets would've had one eye on the next round after winning so easily in Games 1 and 2.

As a season-ticket holder since the franchise arrived in the Twin Cities almost 30 years ago, Chuck Kangas has been to more home games than he can count. Minnesota made exactly half its shots (45-for-90) in Game 3 after shooting just 41.3 per cent the first two games of the series.

Their potential, however, hinges on their two stars, neither of whom have been able to make their mark against the Rockets.

Looking at the betting trends, the Rockets are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games following a loss, 0-5 ATS in their last five road games and 1-6 ATS in their last seven games overall. And heading back to Houston with a 2-2 series tie would be a massive win. Minnesota will look to get back into the series with home court advantage on their side for the third game. They played better than we did today. But the Rockets' reserves, particularly reigning Sixth Man of the Year Eric Gordon, have had a disappointing postseason which has not helped Houston's cause. Rose has 42 points in the series on 19-for-39 shooting in 62 minutes. Four starters had three or more assists seven players had multiple assists.

Rockets James Harden and Chris Paul at the post gamei press conference. Clint Capela, who was big in the first two games, finished with seven points and 11 rebounds. Although, James Harden scored just 12 points and shot 2-for-18 from the field, including 1-for-10 from the 3-point line.

As soon as the Timberwolves playoff run ends, the couple will return home, then it's on to the next milestone. For whatever reason, Minnesota has seen fit to reduce Towns' usage rate in most lineups on the floor this season and especially with Jimmy Butler on the floor.

The Timberwolves are shooting 47.6 percent from the field in the series and 35.7 percent from beyond the arc so far.

As for the Wolves, Butler and Towns have the highest fantasy upside if they continue to play like they did in Game 3. Green contributed 21 points and 12 rebounds off the bench, hitting 5-of-12 from 3-point range in the 102-82 victory over Minnesota. The Timberwolves pulled away in the fourth to seal the win.

The Minnesota Timberwolves won their first playoff game in almost 14-years on Saturday night in Minneapolis.

Here were the first two miscues, both uncharacteristically sloppy mistakes by Jimmy Butler, and both coming before the Rockets had even scored a point. Rose seems to have supplanted Jamal Crawford in the rotation.
