    The line is really low for this game. I believe it's -2. The TWolves are a really good home team, so if the Rockets want to win this game their defense has to show up for sure. I think the TWolves will definitely be up to play this game. I wouldn't be surprised if we dropped this one.

    Wright was just signed and not expected to be available for TWolves game.
    JJ not officially signed yet. DEF not available.
    That's my understanding

    I believe Trevor may still be out as precaution.
    But other than that, all systems go.
    I wish we had Brandan Wright available. They have some height on their team

    Oh, yes, and Bobby Brown is not available ;)

    Is Speights still expected to be bought out and do you really believe he'll be a Rocket?

    Would love this!

    Haha nice!! If we get Speights, a former Warrior, we're going to be outstanding :)

    We really need a backup point guard if anything with the injury history of our guards.

    Depending on which Timberwolves team shows up. They are much improved but I thought they could do even better.

    If they play their best, we would have to play our best.

    The T'Wolves are 23-6 at home and have won 13 straight there. This will not be an easy game for the Rockets.

    Gonna have to actually play well to win this one, won't be able to sleepwalk through it.

    We should win, but we should win literally every game CP3 and Harden both suit up for which is kind of an unrealistic expectation.

    This would be a big win here. Gotta keep pace with GS.

    Hard Game! let´s go for the W. Seeing a big Paul Game, his matchup seems to be the best for us.

    Lock and Load. Better be ready to play boys
    SA had the best home record in the NBA and we took care of business in their house
    Hopefully we can do the same in MInny

    Really excited about this matchup. Will be a strong test for the Rockets. And from all accounts they appear ready to meet the challenge.
