5 takeaways from Timberwolves-Rockets Game 1

Now, the Timberwolves will be heading to Houston to kick off the opening round playoff series.

The Rockets will face the Minnesota Timberwolves in the first round as Houston looks to take home its first National Basketball Association title since 1995. Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points to lead Minnesota. Tucker made a 3 for the Rockets after that, but Minnesota used a 6-1 spurt, with 3s from Wiggins and Teague, to go back on top 62-58. He was 2-for-11 with 10 points and six turnovers against the Spurs in the conference semifinals on his home floor, leading the way to a Rockets disaster, a 39-point Game 6 loss to end the series. Harden got things going when he made a three-pointer while being fouled by Rose and also made the free throw. Harden took over after that, scoring the last six points of the quarter to leave Houston up 76-72 entering the fourth. Rockets coach Mike D'Antoni has been unafraid to use him in late shot-clock situations, and Green carved out a niche for himself by averaging 12.1 points in 42 games.
