Can the Rockets tighten up on defense more like they played in Game 2?
A loss here would be quite surprising for the 65-win Rockets considering they haven't been beaten in back-to-back games since January 4 & Jan. 6. Houston won the lone playoff series between the teams, taking a 3-0 series win over Minnesota in the first round of the 1997 National Basketball Association playoffs. Towns had by far his best game of the series with 18 points, 16 rebounds and two blocks as Minnesota cut its series deficit to 2-1 with a dominant 121-105 win to keep hope alive in Minneapolis of a competitive series.
During the 2017-18 National Basketball Association regular season, the Houston Rockets walloped the Minnesota Timberwolves all four times they met. The Rockets' three point shooting has been even worse as they are hitting a paltry 31.5 percent from beyond the arc: they hit 69.6 percent at the charity stripe. Teague outplayed Rockets star Chris Paul and finished with 23 points and 8 assists.
Harden and co beat the Golden State Warriors to the No.1 seed in the stacked Western Conference, setting up a playoff clash with the Minnesota Timberwolves. It will be interesting if the Rockets do decide to go back to Capela a bit more in Game 4 and counteract Towns' resurgent play.

Minnesota guards, Jimmy Butler and Jeff Teague, both had outstanding games on both sides of the ball to help their team get a win.
Houston was on cruise control for much of the regular season, but they ran into a speed bump in game 3. The Timberwolves are all but dead if they fall behind 3-1 in the series so this is basically a must-win game for them. Coach Mike D'Antoni stated that he felt that the team hadn't played up to its full potential since the middle of March. Houston never made Minnesota uncomfortable in game 3, and must increase the pressure and intensity in game 4. The Rockets will need to find another gear if they're going to be a serious championship contender.
This likely will be Minnesota's final home game of the season without a victory; a win would assure the series would return to the Twin Cities for a Game 6.
