Rockets Vs. Timberwolves Game 4 Preview

Houston leads the series 2-1 after taking the first two games. Eighth-seeded Minnesota won 121-105 in Game 3 on Saturday. The top-seeded Rockets, who finished the season 65-17, had a 17-game win streak earlier this season but seem to have lost the strength they displayed during that stretch.

Other than a strong performance in Game 2, Chris Paul looks like he has been struggling. James Harden has missed a fair share of layups, and Clint Capela has also not been as strong as he could be. Nevertheless, Houston beat Minnesota in all four of their regular-season contests. The Timberwolves are making their first postseason appearance since the 2003-2004 season.

With regards to injuries, the Rockets’ Luc Mbah a Moute (shoulder) is expected to miss the whole first-round series. Ryan Anderson (ankle) has sat out Games 1 and 2.
