This is just a total mismatch on paper, and it is going to make for a game that could be a one-sided blowout. We love that the Timberwolves keep playing as hard as they can in spite of the fact that they have a ton of missing players from the fold, not the least of which are three big men that would probably be averaging a combined 40 points and 25 boards per game if they were in the lineup. Playing against some teams works, but going against a healthy Houston team on the road when it is clicking on all cylinders offensively is just going to be far too much to ask for. The Rockets are amongst the best teams in basketball offensively, averaging nearly 107 points per game on the campaign. They are getting great contributions from G James Harden and F Chandler Parsons, amongst others. About the only thing that we fear is the idea of G Ricky Rubio taking over a third straight game. Rubio came up just shy of a second straight triple-double against the Indiana Pacers. He might be able to do that again versus Houston, but even if he does, it’s still difficult to justify taking less than two touchdowns in Houston.
