The Wolves have been struggling despite have a great depth of young talent but I believe that next season will be their break out year as the teams are still settling in to their formation and style of play under new coach Tom Thibodeau. They have a great young 3 of Towns, Wiggins and LaVine all averaging 20 points per game but have not been able to get the rest of the team to follow suit in the scoring department. They have only won 3 games out of 12 at home, and 2 out of their last 10 across the league; showcasing the tough time this young side is having. A struggle that they have been having is defending properly, as nearly 20% of their opponents points are coming from the free throw line; and that could be something that will be licking the lips of James Harden tonight who alone likes to attempt close to 10 free throws per game.
This game looks like one between an extremely offensive high-tempo team in Houston and strong developing squad who can score but will struggle to defend and keep their opponent out. I am backing Houston to win this game and cover a 2.5 points handicap tonight.
