NBA Playoffs, Timberwolves Vs. Rockets Game 4 (April 23, 2018) Preview: Time Start, TV Channel Info, Series Schedule
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.
Monday’s game at Minneapolis’s Target Center will begin at 8pm EST and will air on TNT. Here is the schedule for the rest of the seven-game series:
- Game 5 in Houston: Wednesday, April 25, 9:30 p.m. ET, TNT
- Game 6 in Minneapolis: Friday, April 27, TBA (if necessary)
- Game 7 in Houston: Sunday, April 29, TBA (if necessary)
