Timberwolves Announce Playoff Schedule For Rockets' Series

Timberwolves Announce Playoff Schedule For Rockets' Series

They should also limit the Western Conference top seeds from shooting three's - they are one of two teams to have recorded over 1,000 three-pointers this season and they have also scored twice as many three's than the Timberwolves per game. It's the first time a LeBron James-led team has dropped the opening game of the first round of the playoffs.

MINNEAPOLIS, MN - Karl Anthony Towns with Timberwolves' President of Basketball Operations and Head Coach Flip Saunders in 2015. He'll have to be an absolute monster inside if the T-Wolves want any chance of winning some games in this series.

Their return to the NBA Playoffs. The Rockets own a 76-40 lead in the all-time regular season series and have won six straight meetings with four coming this season: that includes a 129-120 road win in the last matchup on March 18.

Anderson sprained his ankle on April 3 and it sidelined him for the final four games of the regular season. He got off to a great start, and it continued all game long, as he finished with 27 points and 10 rebounds. Jeff Teague added 15 points, nine rebounds and eight assists. Andrew Wiggins is a stud for the games he shows up and plays focused. Minnesota has to get production from Gorgui Dieng, Derrick Rose, Taj Gibson (12.2 points, 7.1 rebounds), Tyus Jones and Nemanja Bjelica as their bench group.

Houston fell to Sacramento in a game that meant nothing to either side as the Kings were headed to the lottery while the Rockets had long locked up the top seed in the playoffs and home court advantage throughout. Minnesota must play tight defense and hope that the Rockets go cold from the three-point line, while they need to shoot well from 3-point range themselves. After a bad pass by Paul gave the Timberwolves a chance to tie it with 1.5 seconds left, Jimmy Butler's shot was short. Oddmakers love to throw out big numbers with the Rockets, but Houston is an ugly 9-17 ATS this season as a double-digit favorite.

The Wolves didn't get enough from their big guns to contend with a team that possesses the firepower Houston has. The Rockets know this and they actually rely on isolation scoring as much as any team in the league thanks largely to these switches.
