Two of the worst teams in all of the NBA will play this Friday when the Houston Rockets head out on the road to the Target Center for this matchup with the Minnesota Timberwolves.
The Houston Rockets were able to break their massive losing streak 2 games ago beating the Toronto Raptors handily, but the Rockets got right back to losing ways last time out, as they were beaten by the Charlotte Hornets by a score of 122-97.
The Houston Rockets just could not find rhythm from the field in that game against the Hornets shooting under 40 percent from the field which is almost assuredly going to lead to another loss if they shoot that poorly again here against Minnesota.
The main guy who needs to step up for the Rockets here is John Wall, as he was not that great against Charlotte putting up 20 points, but this is the type of game, against an inexperienced Minnesota team, where I can see John Wall shining and putting in a vintage performance.
Kevin Porter and Kelly Olynyk are both listed as day to day for the Rockets here, and they both can make plenty of impact if they are able to go, so be sure to check out the news report prior to tip-off to check in on their status.
The Minnesota Timberwolves have been downright awful all season long and they enter this game on a 3 game losing streak so they have not been much better as of late, but they do get this home game against the Rockets so if they ever wanted a chance to pick up a victory it would be here.
There have been some good things for Minnesota as of late, though, as Anthony Edwards is starting to prove himself at the highest level putting up solid stats on a consistent basis as opposed to just having the odd dunk go viral.
The other positive for the Timberwolves is that they now have Karl-Anthony Towns back in the starting lineup and he has looked decent scoring 22 points in his last game on 34 minutes on the floor.
There are also a ton of moving pieces in terms of the injuries and other news that can effect this game from a handicapping angle much like their opponents, so look out for line moves and news regarding the status of these Timberwolves.

Free Houston Rockets vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
With the stakes of this game being so low I can really see this being a wide open affair with plenty of early 3’s and points on the break. These two teams also do not have much of a reputation in terms of defense and there are enough offensive pieces on both sides as it stands right now that I think this game can comfortably get over the total.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Over the total.
Take the over this Friday and cash in on NBA action.
