Nightmare Harden Vol 2 Rockets to face Timberwolves in first round of playoffs

Harden's year has been remarkable as he's posted averages of 30.4 points, 8.8 assists and 5.4 rebounds while shooting 44.9 percent from the field and 36.7 percent from three.

For the first time since 2004, the Wolves are in the playoffs.

Karl-Anthony Towns averaged 21.3 points per contest this season while collecting an average of 12.3 boards per game.

Jimmy Butler had no interest in divulging any information regarding the wrap he had on his wrist prior to Game 1 of the playoffs on Sunday. They rank first in offensive rating, but don't sleep on Houston's defense with Clint Capela down low.

While Minnesota possesses more talent than the average 8-seed, beating the Rockets four times in seven games is almost impossible, especially when considering they lost only three games with James Harden, Clint Capela and Paul in the lineup during the regular season.

Anderson sprained his ankle on April 3 and it sidelined him for the final four games of the regular season.

The Rockets opponent, the Minnesota Timberwolves, clinched their first playoff birth in 14 years by beating the Denver Nuggets in the regular season finale. It's impossible to stop their offense entirely but the Minnesota bigs are going to have to at least consistently apply pressure, get hands in shooters' faces, and not give them the easy looks. Also, combine the Timberwolves road scoring with the Rockets home scoring and you get 222 points per game. Towns had 12 rebounds and two assists.

Jeff Teague flirted with a triple-double (15 points, nine rebounds, eight assists) while Derrick Rose added 16 points off the bench for Minnesota. Andrew Wiggins is a stud for the games he shows up and plays focused.

Defensively, he's going to have to play the series of his life handling Paul and Harden off the pick and roll and guarding against the lob when the Rockets' guards penetrate.

Houston Rockets guard James Harden is bound for the first MVP award of his career this season.

Houston had Minnesota's number in the regular season, sweeping all four meetings.

Tonight's late Rockets vs Timberwolves game will be televised exclusively on the TNT cable TV channel.
