On Saturday, a full day of NBA action will include the ability to watch Rockets vs. Timberwolves live streaming online and televised coverage. Right now, Houston holds a 2-0 advantage after taking the first two games of the series at home. Minnesota will look to get back into the series with home court advantage on their side for the third game. Here's the latest preview with current odds, start time, television channel, and Rockets vs. Timberwolves live streaming options online.

Game 3 preview

While Game 1 of this series was a three-point win by the Houston Rockets, Minnesota lost by 20 points in the second of the games just a few nights ago.

It wasn't NBA MVP contender James Harden leading the way either. This time around, it was his new teammate this season, Chris Paul, who shot 10-for-18 and finished with a team-high 27 points. Paul also dished out eight assists in the effort. Clint Capella was huge on the boards, grabbing 16 of them, while Gerald Green came off the bench to get 12 rebounds.

On the opposing side, the Minnesota Timberwolves received just 29 points combined from their "Big Three" of Andrew Wiggins, Karl-Anthony Towns, and Jimmy Butler. Minnesota shot 38.8 percent for the game, and made only five of the 18 three-point shots they attempted. They'll hope that playing in their home arena on Saturday night gets them firing on all cylinders again.

Despite the fact they have home court in their favor, the oddsmakers still give Houston the role of favorites. The Rockets are favored by six points on the spread for tonight's contest, with a -260 moneyline price. Minnesota is a +210 underdog for the home game, while the over/under points total is at 216 points.
