A shorthanded Houston Rockets squad will look to add on to their six-game winning streak as they take on the Minnesota Timberwolves Saturday evening.
Coming off an impressive 111-102 victory over the Indiana Pacers that saw James Harden inch his scoring average even closer to 40 points per game, the Houston Rockets are right back in action Saturday night. The Rockets will be without many key players as they hit the road to face Karl-Anthony Towns and the Minnesota Timberwolves from the Target Center.
Towns is leading the T’Wolves in points and assists per game with 26.8 and 4.1. Despite coming off a disappointing 137-116 loss to the Washington Wizards, the Wolves still sit at 7-5 after 12 games so far. The Rockets will need to pay special attention to Karl-Anthony’s improved outside shooting, as he’s hitting 42.5 of his shots from deep so far.
Here are all the details about Saturday’s matchup.
