NBA Playoffs: Houston Rockets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves Preview And Prediction

Nightmare Harden Vol 2

Timberwolves Feel Ready For First Postseason Appearance In 14 Years

The Rockets set an National Basketball Association record for most 3-pointers made (1,256) for two consecutive seasons, and a bit part of that has been the tandem of Harden and Paul. Harden hit seven of his 12 attempts, while everybody else combined to shoot 3-of-25 from deep. Derrick Rose added a bucket seconds later, but Houston scored six straight points after that to put Houston up 68-65. Harden took over after that, scoring the last six points of the quarter to leave Houston up 76-72 entering the fourth.

Tonight's late Rockets vs Timberwolves game will be televised exclusively on the TNT cable TV channel.
