What to Bet on Timberwolves vs. Rockets: NBA Playoffs Betting Tips

This was so long ago that the first round of the National Basketball Association playoffs was a 5-game series.

The Rockets opponent, the Minnesota Timberwolves, clinched their first playoff birth in 14 years by beating the Denver Nuggets in the regular season finale.

Global 'chaos' looms if West bombs Syria again - Putin
He added that France wanted to launch a diplomatic initiative over Syria that would include Western powers, Russia, and Turkey. Mr Trump already made clear his commitment to further hit Syria, should Mr Assad attempt to use chemical weapons again.

With a healthy Butler, they may have won the Northwest Division and gotten a more favorable matchup, but the team can not complain after getting back to the postseason for the first time since 2004. Houston won 65 games for the first time in franchise history and had the best record during the regular season.

The good news is the slate gets wiped clean, and with the way Minnesota handled playoff type pressure just to get into the postseason they're confident they'll be ready. Can the T-Wolves pull off a big upset tonight in Game 1 of the Conference Quarterfinals or will the Houston Rockets roll? They need Clint Capella to dominate the paint so their shots on the outside come more often, and the ability for second chance points goes up. For the Jazz, they keep their own pick while the Wolves got a pick that was similar to the one debited to the Hawks and one that was likely to convey in 2018.

Scientists 'accidentally' create plastic-eating enzyme
But progress is slow, partly because big businesses have aesthetic concerns about bottles made from 100-percent recycled plastic. British researchers created the plastic-digesting protein accidentally while investigating its natural counterpart.

If they were playing the Warriors, who are without Stephen Curry, I would have given them a puncher's chance of winning the series. James Harden had a marvelous performance, in which he scored 44 points, made eight assists and grabbed four rebounds. There were two off days before Game 1, two more before Game 2 and two more before Game 3. Also, combine the Timberwolves road scoring with the Rockets home scoring and you get 222 points per game. Capela had 20 points and 10 rebounds at halftime, but was limited in the second half and added just four more points and two rebounds.

Luc Mbah a Moute will miss the entire first round of the playoffs for the Rockets, unfortunately. If you're Minnesota, there's no coming back from that.

Battle over sales taxes on online purchases heads to Supreme Court
Instead, the state argues that a sales tax should be imposed on businesses who have an "economic presence" in a state. They could also do something in between, granting the states more authority while imposing a number of restrictions.

He also led his team in all five major stat columns for the season including a career-high 9.1 assist per game. There's not a lot of reliable depth for Minnesota. This was pretty damaging to his team considering the fact that Towns can be a very dominant scorer at the low post and that Houston does not have enough players to match his size. If they can't, their return to the postseason will be short-lived. Join the House of Houston team! Given the way the regular season meetings went, there's little reason to think the Timberwolves can slow Houston's attack: look for the over to come up here.
