Houston Rockets vs Minnesota Timberwolves – NBA: The game 1 of this
series between the Rockets and the Timberwolves ended with a win for the home side by 104-101.
But on this game, the men led by Mike D’Antoni will want to improve their playing level and give a better impression than the one they gave in game 1.
The team’s figures on that game were James Harden with 44 points, Clint Capela with 24 points and 12 rebounds and Chris Paul with 14 points.
The rest of the team was somewhat underwhelming when compared to what we’re used to see from them. For game 2, the absences are Luc Mbah a Moute while Ryan Anderson is still doubtful.
KAT and company have played a great game 1 against the Rockets. However, I believe that the team can still do a little bit more because none of their players played extraordinarily.
The coach Tom Thibodeau has excellent resources in hand, combining experience and a ot of youth.
\They have players like Taj Gibson, Derrick Rose, Jamal Crawford, Jeff Teague and even Jimmy Butler, added to KAT, Wiggins or even Georgi Dieng, which could be the recipe for something very good.
Honestly, i look into this team and I see them putting up a very good fight to the favourite Houston Rockets.
On the first game we have witnessed a lot of suffering from the men from Texas and maybe on this 2nd duel we’ll witness something very similar. Justin Patton is still doubtful.
Houston Rockets vs Minnesota Timberwolves – Betting Tip and Prediction:
I think that on this game 2 we might even see a surprise from the visitiors.
I see on these Wolves the ability to defeat the Rockets, despite not thinking it will be easy, taking into consideration the strength that the team from Houston has been showing when playing at home.
However, I think the Wolves will fight toe-to-toe and won’t suffer a disastrous loss, so the value is all on the Handicaps favouring the Timberwolves.
