Houston Rockets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves, probably the last game of this round for the Timberwolves against the Rockets, tonight will be decisive for the home team that leads for 3 games this round against the Timberwolves, if they win tonight it will be the end for the visiting team. Houston Rockets lost at home to the Timberwolves, some defensive problems that were already corrected.
Houston Rockets: A small step from the next round.
Houston has been one of the best teams in the playoffs, they do not have to worry now, they are almost safe in the next round of the playoffs. The last game at the home of the Timberwolves was easy to win, 119-100, a solid victory, but during the first game things were not as expected, since the Rockets lost 105-121 due to defense errors, the point weak of the Rockets is the defense, away from home they can not do much to defend the team.
The Timberwolves know that playing at the Rockets house is dangerous, the Rockets at home are unstoppable, 113.9 points on average, 46.1% field goal and 76.7% free throw, but what helps the home team the most is the three pointers , the average of three pointers is at 15.35 with an effectiveness of 35.4%. At home the defense is much more effective than on the road, since the defense only allows 104.3 points on average.
This game can be easily won by the Rockets, they should only do the same as game 1 and 2 against the Timberwolves, the first game 104-101, the second game at home was a perfect victory, for more than 20 points and all starters they had a good performance against the Timberwolves.
Minnesota Timberwolves: Only a miracle can save you.
The nightmare of the Timberwolves begins tonight, arriving at the house of the powerful Rockets with a disadvantage of 3 games, and if they lose tonight it will be the farewell to the playoffs. The Timberwolves could not win the first games on the road against the Rockets, even though they put pressure on the home team in the first game, that did not help.
106.8 points on average on the road, 46.9% field goal, 81.4% free throw (better than Houston Rockets), but the Timberwolves have a failure in the Three Pointers, which creates problems to get closer on the scoreboard. Karl Anthony Towns mentioned this week that the team is ready to play at home the Rockets, supposedly have a surprise prepared for the home team.
This game is for the Rockets, there is no need to mention anything more than to spend words saying that the Timberwolves have a chance to win or extend the playoffs and go home.
