Houston Rockets vs Minnesota Timberwolves
NBA Post Season
Houston Rockets lead the 7 game series, 3-1
MIN VS HOU DREAM11 MATCH PREVIEW:
Perhaps the best performance by a team in a quarter this NBA season, Houston Rockets dropped a jaw-dropping 50 points in the 3rd quarter against Minnesota Timberwolves and won the game four 119-100 against Wolves, thus taking a 3-1 lead in this 7-Game NBA Playoffs series. This was only the 2nd time in NBA history that a team managed to score 50-or-plus score in a single quarter. The last and the only time this feat was achieved was way back in 1962 when Los Angeles Lakers dropped 51 points in the loss to Detroit Pistons.
Rockets may have scored heavily in the last game, but it was the defense that must have given James Harden and Company a good sleep after that win. They produced more blocks and won more defensive rebounds than in the last three games. Luc Mbah a Moute’s continuous absence is the main reason why Rockets are so poor in defense in this series.
For Minnesota Timberwolves, this is a game of no-choice. The Wolves are 3-1 down in the series and need to win this game to keep their hopes of making it into the next round alive.

MIN vs HOU Dream11 INDIA FANTASY PREDICTION:
Minnesota Timberwolves completely outplayed Houston Rockets in the 3rd game to make it 2-1 in the series. They fought toe to toe against James Harden and company in the last game and were behind by just a single point at the half-time. But a meltdown in the 3rd quarter saw them letting 50 points and they ended up losing the game. Now they trail 1-3 in this series and need to win all the remaining three games to move to the next round, which looks improbable considering Rockets hardly lose two games on the trot.
We are backing James Harden’s team to finish the job in this match.
