For the Thunder, here's why Game 4 is absolutely a 'must win'

Thibs-Towns saga rolls on as the Wolves try to save face in this series and beyond

The Houston Rockets had the best record in the National Basketball Association during the regular season and are the top seed in the West. The young star scored 18 points in the Wolves win after scoring just 13 runs in the first two games combined. It was the first playoff game in Minnesota since 2004, and the fans were erupting with passion.

Houston lead the seven-game series 2-1, with game four taking place in Minneapolis tonight. The Rockets' three point shooting has been even worse as they are hitting a paltry 31.5 percent from beyond the arc: they hit 69.6 percent at the charity stripe.

Spurs vs. Warriors, Game 3 live stream
While Kerr has relied on David West and Kevon Looney, veteran Zaza Pachulia has received a healthy scratch for the past two games. The Spurs answered that offensive prowess with a 9-0 run of their own to take the lead towards the end of the first quarter.

The Timberwolves were desperately waiting for Karl-Anthony Towns to show up in this series and he arrived in game 3. Jeff Teague (23 points, eight assists) and Andrew Wiggins (20 points, five rebounds, five assists) both put in excellent games, while Derrick Rose (17 points) had another massive impact off the bench. James Harden had a quiet 29 points, seven rebounds, and seven assists, while Chris Paul had 17 points and six assists. The Rockets gave up 121 points in game 3 and allowed the Timberwolves to shoot 50% from the field. The Rockets will have to play tougher and smarter if they want to bounce back in game 4. Houston shot just 10-of-37 (27 percent) from 3-point range.

Mike Mayock's 2018 NFL Draft prospect-team connections
The NFL Draft is only days away meaning time is running short for players to sell themselves to teams they hope will draft them. Last season it was a virtual certainty the Titan would take a receiver and a cornerback with their two Round 1 picks.

Minnesota took Game 3 of the series but they aren't going to hit 15 threes in a game considering they were last in the league in threes per game in the regular season. They should expect Mike D'Antoni to construct a comeback based on serious contributions from James Harden and Chris Paul. The Timberwolves are battling but they'll need Towns to play more like he did in Game 3 as compared to the first two contests. Houston never made Minnesota uncomfortable in game 3, and must increase the pressure and intensity in game 4. Nonetheless, that is a lot of components to pull together for Minnesota, and if the Rockets regain their rhythm before the rest of the series, you can pretty much discount Minnesota's future playoff hopes all together.
