The Houston Rockets will attempt to maintain their winning form and dominate like they have done all season long as they get ready to lock horns with the Minnesota Timberwolves in Game 1 of this Western Conference showdown with the opener set to be broadcasted on TNT Sunday night at 9:00 p.m. ET and live from the Toyota Center in Houston, TX.

The Rockets, who set a franchise-record with 65 wins to earn the No. 1 overall seed, have met the Timberwolves on four occasions this season. The Rockets swept the four-game series and won the first three tilts by 18 points. They prevailed in the finale 129-120 but led by as many as 25 points at one point. They covered the line in all four contests.

The Rockets could have won many more games but since they clinched the top seed in the West weeks ago, they took their foot off the gas pedal while resting some key players. The Timberwolves, who hadn’t make the playoffs in 13 years, enter this affair as an 11-point favorite, according to MyBookie Sportsbook, with the total sitting at 217 points.
