Houston Rockets 129

Minnesota Timberwolves 105

The Minnesota Timberwolves three-game winning streak came to an end last night as they fell to the Houston Rockets 129-105 Monday night at Target Center.

1. Harden my heart

The Wolves didn't have any answers for stopping Rockets guard James Harden. Harden finished with 34 points on 12-of-21 from the floor. He also knocked down five three's and dished out six assists.

2. Rockets shoot down Wolves from the outside

Houston was red hot from behind the three-point line Monday night. The Rockets knocked down 15-of-30 from deep.

Much of the damage was done by Harden who was 5-of-7 from the three-point line, but there were others. Trevor Ariza and Josh Smith each knocked down three a piece.

3. Bjelica double-double

On the bright side for the Wolves, Nemanja Bjelica continues to show the promise the Wolves had hoped for when they signed him. He posted a double-double Monday night with 11 points and 14 rebounds.

It was his second straight.
