Minnesota made exactly half its shots (45-for-90) in Game 3 after shooting just 41.3 per cent the first two games of the series.
Towns' game comes on the heels of a combined 13 points in the first two games in which he hesitated to shoot the ball and seemed confounded and beaten by the athleticism of Rockets center Clint Capela and physicality of forward P.J. Tucker. Meanwhile, the Timberwolves are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five home games, 4-1 ATS in their last five games against a team with a winning record and 6-1 ATS in their last seven games overall.
"It's been a long time", Rockets superstar James Harden said of the team being in a good rhythm.

These complications are more common in young children under 5, older adults, and people with weakened immune systems. People who swallow the germ contract symptoms of diarrhea, stomach cramps and vomiting within two to eight days.
Harden carried the Rockets in Game 1 with a 44-point, eight-assist performance while Paul had an off game, scoring 14 points on 5-of-14 shooting and matching his career playoff high with six turnovers.
It's amusing how one game can completely change a playoff series as the Rockets would've had one eye on the next round after winning so easily in Games 1 and 2. The Houston Rockets had the best record in the National Basketball Association during the regular season and are the top seed in the West. Jimmy Butler had 28 points, Jeff Teague 23 (he outplayed Paul) and Thornhill, Ontario's Andrew Wiggins 20 points, five rebounds and five assists.
James Harden had another solid game in game 3 (29 points, 7 rebounds, 7 assists), but wasn't able to get to the rim as easily as he is used to. Houston must play tougher defense in game 4 if they want to leave Minnesota with a 3-1 lead. In victories this season, they're averaging 115 points on 47 percent shooting, while allowing just 101.8 points. Nonetheless, that is a lot of components to pull together for Minnesota, and if the Rockets regain their rhythm before the rest of the series, you can pretty much discount Minnesota's future playoff hopes all together. Do the Timberwolves have what it takes to even up the series at home?
