Houston ranks third in the National Basketball Association in points per possession in the pick and roll, with 0.93. Judging by the fact that Houston finished 1 in the conference, it seems a little help is all Harden needed.

Harden meanwhile is the front-runner to win the award having led the league on points-per-game and three pointers made as well as helping the Houston Rockets topple the Golden State Warriors atop the Western Conference. "We didn't wake up this morning like, 'Hey, we're going to go to Houston.' We woke up saying we're going to go to Houston and get the job done". "He's been doing it for a while now". Chris Paul's 1.02 PPP is nothing to slouch at. "I'm just trying to get better every game, try to make winning plays and play as hard as I can". "If you wanna look as good as I do". The Houston Rockets are allowing 35.1 percent shooting from deep and are grabbing 43.5 rebounds per game. Towns' numbers dropped this season, but this was largely a product of Butler's inclusion to the team. Today we will preview this first game of the first round.

Even when breaking down the big men in this series, Capela isn't the first to come to mind. Andrew Wiggins scored 18 points to lead Minnesota.

"If guys want to come here, they come", rookie Kyle Kuzma said Thursday after his exit interview with team brass.

"And I get that, and I love the Astros, but the Rockets", said Trejo, "they're going to get a championship too!" Of particular concern is the Wolves' defensive rebounding percentage against the Rockets, which is.736.

De Bruyne targets sustained success at City
We have worked so hard for this and to win the title means so much to all of us having spent the season performing well. United hold the current record Premier League winning margin of 18 points and that could also fall to City.

Depth goes a long way in the postseason and that's something that Tom Thibodeau has not really relied on in Minnesota.

If Houston gets hot from downtown, it's game over for the T-Wolves. Terry Rozier hit a 3-pointer that should have sealed a victory for the Celtics. Harden flexed each bicep twice while peering down at the muscles after the shot before making the free throw.

The Rockets' leaders have a lot to prove this postseason. A ideal combination of a deep team clicking together and Harden having an awesome season has launched the Rockets to the top, but there are a few things they will need to focus on to take care of the defending champion Golden State Warriors and whoever they face in the finals. Just another two fell in the second quarter.

Paul on tying a season-high with six turnovers: "I think the worst thing was the turnovers". That was the first time I felt like I couldn't control it. The nightmares had by his opposition pre and post-game served as the inspiration for the latest colorway of the Adidas Harden Vol. 2. There's Ryan Anderson, P.J. Tucker, and Trevor Ariza. Totals 39-83 16-23 104. Game 2 will be at 8:30 p.m. Wednesday and can be heard on BUZ'N 102.9 FM. Assists_Minnesota 22 (Teague 8), Houston 15 (Harden 8). Fouled Out_None.
