MIN VS HOU DREAM11 NBA Basketball Prediction 24th April – Fantasy Team News
Minnesota Timberwolves vs Houston Rockets
NBA Post Season
Houston Rockets lead the 7 game series, 2-1
MIN VS HOU DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
First loss in the NBA Playoffs first round this season and James Harden had to come out in open to claim that Houston Rockets are yet to hit their top gear in this year’s Playoffs series. That’s right actually because Rockets have been below par in the first three games. They scored 104, 102, and 105 respectively in the first three games against Minnesota Timberwolves which is way below than the average 112.4 they managed during the regular season.
There is a theory going on in NBA circle that Houston Rockets are no longer the team that won the Western Conference and long gone are the days when this team put together a 17-game winning streak. If we take Rockets’ performance in the first three games, and despite them winning the first two games, they could easily become only the fourth Number-1 team to bow out from the first round.
Minnesota Timberwolves, on the other hand, are brimming with confidence after they stunned James Harden and Company in the third game. That success could be singled out to the fact that Wolves changed their game-plan in the game -three and shot more from beyond the arc than they did in the first two games. It worked and they ended up winning that game. There is no reason they should change their philosophy in this pivotal game.

INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
It’s looking very very promising for Minnesota Timberwolves as soon as they came to Minneapolis and played a Basketball match against Houston Rockets at their own home. Jimmy Butler, Jeff Teague, Andrew Wiggins and Karl-Anthony Towns all contributed in the big numbers to down James Harden’s Rockets. A similar performance from the home team and we may see a 2-2 scoreline in this NBA Playoffs series which nobody could have predicted at the beginning of this series.
But the last match may very be a wake-up call for Houston Rockets and we could see a different performance from the Western Conference Champions. We are backing Rockets to win the match-
