Game Preview


Oddsmakers around the globe have the Minnesota Timberwolves eating up the Houston Rockets tonight at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas. The hosts are 0-5 in their last 5 encounters but their losses go back way further than that and with Jabari Smith doubtful and Kevin Porter Jr. out, it seems too hard for Houston to put up a successful fight.


The Timberwolves aren’t at 100% either, Rudy Gobert, Taurean Prince and Bryn Forbes are all doubtful and Karl-Anthony Towns and Jordan McLaughlin are out. That being said, the Twolves did beat Houston 113-104 last Saturday and narrowly beat the Toronto Raptors 128-126 last Thursday. With Anthony Edwards at the helm, the Timberwolves have been able to keep their offensive sharp while relying on D’Angelo Russell to assist whenever possible.


Let’s check the latest picks, NBA news, stats and NBA expert picks for Timberwolves vs Rockets. We’ve plenty of NBA predictions for you to consider.


Whether Gobert is in or out tonight will make a big difference as he leads his team in rebounds and although the Rockets do have the Turkish menace in Alperen Sengun, it just hasn’t been enough lately. For the Rockets, it’s a lot of pressure on Jalen Green to carry his team’s offensive efforts at home tonight.


This Western Conference showdown also has some pretty strong implications for the standings as Houston is fighting to get out of the bottom of the table. They’re currently tied in points with San Antonio and Portland who play each other tonight. For the Timberwolves it’s an opportunity to ascend to the top half of the table or at least keep up the pace with Phoenix who they are tied in points with. Phoenix will play the Hornets tomorrow and are without Booker and Crowder which may give Charlotte an opportunity at the Talking Stick Resort Arena in Phoenix. Stay tuned to find out what the angle is on this match between Minnesota and Houston as our experts analyze the match.
