The Houston Rockets have been playing good NBA basketball as the team travels to Minnesota with five straight wins. The team enters play with good rest with a day of rest after defeating a bad Milwaukee Bucks team on the road on Saturday. Prior to their win at Milwaukee the Bucks last hit the court on Wednesday in a 14 point home win to Phoenix. Houston before their home win against Phoenix last competed on February 1st in a 14 point home victory to Cleveland. Houston will have energy here because the schedule has not been too taxing for this team as they enter Minnesota. Houston has won two straight against the Timberwolves winning by eight or greater in each contest. Houston has covered 9 of their past 11 trips to the Timberwolves. The head to head has trended under with 4 under the totals in their previous four games. This is a tough spot for Minnesota as they enter play with injury concerns. The team will be without big man Nikola Pekovic with an ankle problem and now return date is listed for the Timberwolves center. Shooter Kevin Martin is out with a broken thumb he suffered on Friday against New Orleans. Scorer Kevin Love is a bad quad and it forced him to miss the game at home to the Trailblazers. The injury to Pekovic is important here as he is the man assigned to Dwight Howard down low. Look for Houston to feed Howard who should be able to get good position on a depleted Minnesota team.
