    Rockets in 4, this is the team I wanted. Minny is the absolute best matchup for Houston, terrible defensively and donít take nearly enough 3s to compete with our scoring

    Houston in 4. My Wolves drew the worst matchup possible, we can't keep with a team that hits so many 3's.

    If you want the ultimate, you've got to be willing to pay the ultimate price. It's not tragic to die doing what you love.

    I picked Houston in 5. Having already swept the series, I just don't think it's that likely that the Rockets go 8-0 against a team with so much talent like Minnesota. I think the Wolves will take one in Minnesota, and Towns and Butler will play out of their minds enough to get them one victory.

    Also, the Mbah a Moute injury may not seem like a huge deal, but he's the Rockets' best perimeter defender, and the Wolves have multiple quality perimeter scorers.

    Ya I agree with the above. Horrible matchup but I think we snag one home game to make it go 5.

    Terrible matchup for Minny.. Below average defending the three and unless Wiggins steps up and plays like Kobe, I don't think they have enough offense to beat Houston.

    Horrible matchup for Minny.

    I picked Rockets in 4, but I think there will be at least 2 really tough games because of Butler. He'll give Harden problems, and I wouldn't be surprised if he actually outplays Harden this series (Buckets is the truth in the playoffs for those of you out west who haven't watched much of him there). KAT and Wiggins will struggle, though, and Houston's firepower is just too much.
    The Baker is coming.

    I'll be surprised if it sees a 5th game.

    Houston won't have a problem. Wolves needed the Jazz or someone as a matchup to have a shot.

    As others have said this is a bad match up for the Wolves and I just can't see them getting a game. Chris Paul is so hungry for a championship that he's going to be playing out of his mind while James Harden has some playoff demons to exercise. I can't see Houston even dropping a game in this series. 4-0 Rockets.

    The thing is, he does have the physical ability and has done it for stretches already. Would be unbelievable to see him take the leap in this series to Derozen. Or at least give us a Good Derozen level series to make this thing interesting
