Are the Rockets better than the Timberwolves?
The Rockets showed some pride in Friday’s second half, allowing just 50 points to Dallas after surrendering 80 in the first half. That would seem to indicate the team hasn’t checked out on Stephen Silas. The Timberwolves (19-20) are clearly the better team and are still likely to win, straight up.
What time does the Houston Rockets game with the Minnesota Timberwolves?
The Houston Rockets will take on the Minnesota Timberwolves at 8 p.m. ET on Wednesday at Target Center. Both teams were in the bottom three of the Western Conference a season ago and both teams are still probably a couple of offseasons away from being able to contend for a playoff spot.

What you need to know about the Timberwolves
Last year was nothing to brag about for Minnesota (23-49), so the squad is looking forward to a new start. Chris Finch took over for Ryan Saunders early last season and Minnesota played better basketball under the former Raptors assistant. The Timberwolves closed out their season by winning seven of their last 12 games.
What you need to know about the Rockets
Likewise, coming off of an uninspired 17-55 last-season record, the Rockets have set their aspirations higher this year. The Rockets began a rebuild by trading James Harden and Russell Westbrook away last season and have to feel good about identifying Wood and Porter as potential building blocks going forward.
