Rockets vs. Timberwolves: Game 4 Prediction, NBA Playoff Odds

The top-seeded Houston Rockets will look to find their offensive rhythm and head home with a 3-1 lead when they visit the eighth-seeded Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday as solid road favorites for Game 4 of their Western Conference first-round National Basketball Association playoff series. "They waited a long time for this win and we're glad we could deliver". Jeff Teague chipped in 23 points plus eight assists, Andrew Wiggins added 20 points while Derrick Rose had 17 off the bench. Minnesota shot 15-of-27 from deep compared to 15-of-41 shooting by Houston. That's why I was anxious the whole time about resting guys, doing this, getting out of rhythm.

The Wolves only committed 10 turnovers the rest of the game - far from flawless, but at least majority were forced by solid Houston defense; James Harden and Chris Paul finished the game with three steals apiece. The Wolves closed the third quarter with a 26-14 run and produced spurts of 15-3 and 11-2 in the final period, perfecting their plan to play at a faster pace. He didn't require, or accept, any medical attention and returned from the intermission without any hint that he was hurt.

Rose, one of three former Chicago Bulls stalwarts under Thibodeau with Butler and Gibson who were brought in to bring the edge and experience the cornerstones Towns and Wiggins are lacking, made his presence obvious the entire time he was in the game.

Moody has actually declared his innocence this whole time. "The execution coming up doesn't add anything to that", Bob Vance said. They said he then sent out additional package bombs to make it look like the Ku Klux Klan was behind the judge's murder.

Unlikely? Sure. The Rockets aren't going to stay ice-cold from beyond the arc forever (29.2 percent so far), but if they have one more sub-par game from deep and the Wolves can capitalize on home court advantage and cease their suddenly sloppy play, things could get interesting. Trevor Ariza, P.J. Tucker, Gerald Green and Paul, all whom primarily defend against perimeter ball-handlers, allowed a combined 12-of-15 3-point shooting.

The Rockets, who ranked second in the league in scoring during the regular season en route to earning the NBA's top record, are averaging just under 104 points per game through the first three games.

"The fans were unbelievable", Towns said after Saturday's practice.
