PhilBoxing.com




MINNEAPOLIS - The visiting Houston Rockets proved ​why they are the NBA's most explosive team.​

The Rockets crushed the Timberwolves in front of their​ home ​fans 119-100 Monday night (Tuesday Morning RP Time) ​in Game 4 of their ​round-one series at the jampacked Target Center.

Rockets go-to-guy and MVP candidate James Harden hauled in ​36 points including 22 in the 3rd period.

The Rockets​' 50-point ​ 3rd quarte​r eruption is the second-​best in ​p​layoffs history​,​ next ​only ​to ​the ​LA Lakers​'​ 51-point in one quarter ​production ​in 1962 against Detroit Pistons.

Harden and Chris Paul combined for ​37 points of the 50 points 3rd period of the Houston Rockets.​ ​Harden and the Rockets ​started slow ​before opening the flood gates following a 21-21

The Timberwolves trailed 50-49 at the h​alf. But at the start of the 3rd period Harden, Paul, PJ Tucker and Eric Gordon had back-to-back treys.

The Houston supporting cast also contributed. ​C​enter Clint Capela 14 points and 17 boards, Chris Paul 25, Eric Gordon 18 and Trevor Ariza 15.

Meanwhile the Timberwolves center and 2016 Ro​okie of the Year Karl-Anthony Towns produced 22 points and 15 rebounds, Jimmy Butler ​had ​19 points and 9 rebounds, Derrick Rose 17​ ​​and ​Andrew Wiggins 14.

Game 5 will be on Wednesday night (Thursday morning Philippine Time) at the Toyota Center in Houston, Texas, State, USA. The winner between Houston-Minnesota will face the winner of Oklahoma City Thunder vs Utah Jazz. (DQG)
