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.
