The Rockets, led by James Harden, have dominated all season long, and that's not expected to change vs. the Timberwolves. The Wolves have struggled defensively all season long. Clint Capela has the size to rough up Karl-Anthony Towns, while PJ Tucker should do a good enough job on Jimmy Butler.
Minnesota's only slim chance at creating the upset is if the Rocket go cold from the three-point line and Karl-Anthony Towns takes over the series in a consistent fashion.
