The Timberwolves have played better basketball over their last 16 games posting a record of 9-7. They enter Saturday's tilt with the Houston Rockets three games back of the eighth seed in the Western Conference.
A big reason for the team's turnaround has been the play of Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins as both players are nearly averaging 30 points per game.
