Minnesota Timberwolves: 3 takeaways from Game 1 vs. Rockets

17 April 2018

Houston swept four games against the Timberwolves this season, and won three of them by 18 points. Harden made 7 of 12 3-pointers, but Trevor Ariza, P.J. Tucker, Eric Gordon and Paul combined to make just 3 of their 22 tries. Tucker made a three for the Rockets after that, but Minnesota used a 6-1 spurt, with threes from Wiggins and Teague, to go back on top 62-58.

During the regular season, the Wolves were 0-4 against the Rockets with a point differential of -63, and in a unusual twist, they lost the first three games by exactly 18 points. Derrick Rose added a bucket seconds later, but Houston scored six straight points after that to put Houston up 68-65. Harden flexed each bicep twice while peering down at the muscles after the shot before making the free throw. This series with the Rockets will likely come down to a couple of close games.
