Player grades from the match that saw the Houston Rockets defeat the Minnesota Timberwolves. Oh… and return to the playoff ladder!

After defeating the Los Angeles Lakers Sunday afternoon. The Houston Rockets gained another must-win victory, Monday, against the young Minnesota Timberwolves.

It seemed as if the Rockets did not want to give the Timberwolves any hopes of winning this game. Behind James Harden and Dwight Howard, the Rockets got off to a tremendous start and never looked back. With only one game remaining, the Rockets are trying to do everything possible to stay in the playoff hunt.

Editor’s Note: as of posting the Mavericks went on to beat the Jazz who lost Rudy Gobert to a horrendous ankle sprain in the game. That means the Rockets are back in the playoffs with control of their own destiny since they own the tie-break over the Jazz. Let’s hope they do what they’ve had trouble doing all season ….. determine their own fate with a victory.
