For this week’s pick of the week, we’re heading to the NBA for a faceoff between the Houston Rockets and the Minnesota Timberwolves. These two teams will go head to head at the Target Center in Minneapolis, Minnesota on April 2. 

The two teams have seen each other on the court twice in 2024, and both times, the Timberwolves claimed victory. 

These games have not been close games, with the Timberwolves defeating the Rockets in January, 122-95, and in February, 111-90, according to ESPN.

Timberwolves shooting guard Anthony Edwards is a lethal player for the team and is currently averaging 26.4 points, 5.2 assists and 5.5 rebounds per game, and is leading his team in points and steals, according to ESPN.

Timberwolves center Rudy Gobert is another great defensive asset to the team, averaging 12.9 rebounds per game, according to ESPN.

The Rockets do have shooting guard Jalen Green, who is averaging 19.6 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.4 assists per game and has helped the team to consistent wins, according to ESPN.

Although the Rockets have been on a five-game winning streak, I do believe the Timberwolves will leave this matchup with their third victory against the Rockets.

The Timberwolves are a top team in the league right now and have a home-court advantage against the Rockets, and considering their history with their opponent, there’s no doubt they won’t get another win.
