Houston Rockets 129 Minnesota Timberwolves 106-Recap

All areas clicked for the Houston Rockets as they recorded a season high 36 assists and hit 16 3-pointers in a 129-106 blowout win over the Minnesota Timberwolves.

The Rockets looked dead out of the water in the first 16 minutes of the game, starting the game with 8 turnovers to find themselves down 41-31. James Harden would then hit two consecutive 3’s that would spark a 17-0 run, and the Rockets wouldn’t trail for the rest of the game.

Harden finished with 28 points in all, while adding 8 assists and hit 6 of 10 3-pointers. He was one of seven Rockets to score in double-digits as Chandler Parsons broke out of a recent slump with 19 points, 9 rebounds, and 5 assists.

Omer Asik started in place of Dwight Howard and added 12 points and 5 rebounds. Patrick Beverley scored 14 points, Terrence Jones added 10 points and 7 rebounds, while Jeremy Lin scored 11 points and dished out 10 assists off the bench.

But the player of the night goes to Donatas Motiejunas, who put in a career high 20 points and 9 of 11 shooting.
