Minnesota Timberwolves Betting

The Minnesota Timberwolves face a heavy opponent in the Rockets with their chances not looking good. Karl-Anthony Towns remains in the sidelines, leaving the T-Wolves to rely heavily on D’Angelo Russell. Guys like Malik Beasley and Juan Hernangomez need to do more if Minnesota is to pull off a win. Defense could help their chances but looms as a tall order against the powerhouse Rockets.

Players to watch: M. Beasley SG 13 GP 13 GS 33.1 MIN 21.9 PTS 0.7 OR 4.5 DR 5.2 REB 2 AST 0.6 STL 0.2 BLK 1.5 TO 2 PF 1.4 AST/TO 17.89 PER

D. Russell SG 11 GP 11 GS 32.5 MIN 21.1 PTS 0.3 OR 4.2 DR 4.5 REB 6.7 AST 1.2 STL 0.4 BLK 3.6 TO 1.8 PF 1.9 AST/TO 16.83 PER

J. Hernangomez PF 13 GP 13 GS 29.4 MIN 12.5 PTS 1.4 OR 5.7 DR 7.1 REB 1.4 AST 1 STL 0.3 BLK 1 TO 2.5 PF 1.4 AST/TO 13.61 PER

Houston Rockets Betting

The Houston Rockets need to get something going and the losing ends Tuesday. Offensively, they have little reason to shoot blanks against the Timberwolves. James Harden and Russell Westbrook will lead the offensive attack anew as they try to stop the bleeding. Defense has been woeful for Houston and is an area Mike D’Antoni needs to address soon.

Players to Watch: J. Harden SG 60 GP 60 GS 36.8 MIN 34.3 PTS 1.1 OR 5.3 DR 6.4 REB 7.4 AST 1.7 STL 0.9 BLK 4.5 TO 3.4 PF 1.6 AST/TO 28.28 PER

R. Westbrook PG 52 GP 52 GS 35.9 MIN 27.5 PTS 1.8 OR 6.3 DR 8.1 REB 7 AST 1.6 STL 0.3 BLK 4.4 TO 3.5 PF 1.6 AST/TO 21.55 PER

R. Covington PF 13 GP 12 GS 31.9 MIN 13 PTS 1.2 OR 6.7 DR 7.9 REB 1.3 AST 1.1 STL 2.5 BLK 1.4 TO 3.3 PF 0.9 AST/TO 14.85 PER
