Gambling911.com has your T-Wolves vs. Rockets betting line, which had Houston as a -10.5 favorite.

The Rockets have won nine of the last ten games in this series, but failed to cover the double digit line in Game 1 of the Playoffs.  The final in that game was 104-101.

If the Timberwolves can again harass Houston into 10-for-37 shooting from behind the arc on Wednesday at Toyota Center in Game 2 of this Western Conference first-round playoff series, they will have met one of their primary objectives. However, preventing James Harden from torching their defense is a game plan that must be executed in concert with blanketing the 3-point line.

“It’s got to be a lot better,” said Timberwolves guard Jimmy Butler, who drew the primary assignment on Harden. “I’ve got to do my job more effectively. What do you want: a free throw, a 3-pointer, a layup? He got whatever he wanted in that game and I’ve got to be better at taking it away.

“He’s a (heck) of a player; everybody knows that. But you don’t just guard him with one guy, it’s everybody out there. Everybody has to be in the correct position to challenge shots, contest him at the rim. If there is a miss we’ve got to get the rebound and take off the other way. But we didn’t do any of that. We’ve got to be better on Wednesday.”

The NBA Betting Power Ratings only indicate a line of -7.5.
