The Houston Rockets concluded their three-game home stand Friday against the Timberwolves.

After their disappointing loss to the Clippers, it’s no surprise the Houston Rockets came away with a win. This week was the perfect example of the inconsistency of their season.

However, I thought this game would be a walk on the bench for the Rockets. For the second time this season I underestimated the talented Minnesota Timberwolves. A duel between rookie sensations Karl-Anthony Towns and James Harden made this one of the most entering games of the season. Overall, it was a great win by the Rockets!
