Razzie dazzle playmaker and Indiana-native Jeff Teague contributed 23 points and 8 assists, Andrew Wiggins chipped in with 20 rebounds, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Minnesota beat the Rockets 121-105 in game 3 to make the series 2-1.
Last time they played at Target Center, the Minnesota Timberwolves clinched their first playoff berth since 2004. What was even more surprising was that the Wolves, not a great 3-point shooting team, made as many (15) as Houston did in Game 3. Tip-off is at 6:30.
After totaling only 13 points over the first two games and being challenged to be more aggressive by everyone from TNT analyst Charles Barkley to Timberwolves coach Tom Thibodeau, Towns was constantly double-teamed by the switch-heavy Rockets and didn't attempt a shot in the first quarter. But the Rockets' reserves, particularly reigning Sixth Man of the Year Eric Gordon, have had a disappointing postseason which has not helped Houston's cause.
Minnesota took Game 3 of the series but they aren't going to hit 15 threes in a game considering they were last in the league in threes per game in the regular season.
A loss here would be quite surprising for the 65-win Rockets considering they haven't been beaten in back-to-back games since January 4 & Jan. 6. Rose has 42 points in the series on 19-for-39 shooting in 62 minutes.
Rockets: Anderson returned to action for the first time in seven games due to a sprained left ankle and finished with 12 points.
After back-to-back quiet games, this could be the opportunity for Harden to finally return to his uber-aggressive self and go off for another 40-point game like he did in Game 1. James Harden led Houston with 29 points, seven rebounds and seven assists in the loss: he hit only nine of 21 from the floor. Towns put together a solid showing in Game 3 but he did next to nothing in the first two games of the set. The Rockets were 18-1 during the regular season when he made at least three 3-point shots. This one likely falls under the total as well thanks to Minnesota cooling off from outside and Houston playing tighter defense.
While Kerr has relied on David West and Kevon Looney, veteran Zaza Pachulia has received a healthy scratch for the past two games. Game 3 should be the most highly contested game in this series so far, and will come down to a play or two late.
