On Tuesday February 13, the Houston Rockets arrives at the Target Center to face their host the Minnesota Timberwolves. Entering the game the Rockets are on an eight game win streak with their most recent against the Dallas Mavericks.
Conversely the Timberwolves are dealing with traveling woes having lost six in row on the road, yet enter having won at home versus the Kings.
Last season, the Rockets took three of the four games versus the Timberwolves and took the initial game of the season this season. The Rockets hold the all-time record having bested the Timberwolves in 73 of their 113 matches.
When the trio of James Harden, Chris Paul and Clint Capela play the Rockets are stealth. On the season in games they’ve all played the Rockets have lost just once.
In the victory over Dallas this triad led the way. Harden produced 27 points, 5 assists and 6 rebounds. Paul came up just short of a triple-double with 25 points, 9 assists and 8 rebounds.
Capela registered a double-double of 16 points and 11 rebounds.
Trevor Ariza has missed the past seven games due to a hamstring injury and is unlikely to play in this match.
Tom Thibodeau needs to figure out how to get his charges to win on the road. Losing 10 of their last 11 road games is a major issue for a squad trying to be maintain home court with their eyes set on over taking the Spurs in third.
Consider the fact the Wolves have a 23-6 record at home and compare that to the three squads in front of them. Houston and San Antonio are 22-6 at home while Golden State is 21-7. Ultimately the road losses are the major difference separating the Wolves from the teams above them
In the win over Sacramento all five starters scored in double digits as well as Jamal Crawford off the bench. Karl-Anthony Towns led the way with 29 points.
Marcus Georges-Hunt (illness) is questionable for this match and has missed the last three games.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction: Wolves +3
If this game were a Wolves road game there is no way I’d take them. But, the Rockets looked a little haggard against the Mavericks and are due for a loss. Houston might still pull out the win, but it should be close.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Take the Wolves and the points
As improved as Houston is defensively if Karl-Anthony Towns gets rolling he poses a big problem for Houston especially with the Rockets needing to navigate defensively without Trevor Ariza.
