Talk about the game tonight.

Wolves at Rockets
7:00 pm Central

The Wolves have a tough task tonight in Houston, facing a quality Rockets squad the night after a difficult game in Dallas. At least there will be no Dwight Howard tonight, but the Rockets have plenty of firepower without him. They lead the league in both three point attempts and free throw attempts, so slowing them down will not be easy. It will be a big test in particular for Gorgui Dieng, who must play a big role in protecting the rim while avoiding fouls. No Howard helps, but Rockets drives will need to be contained, a difficult task.

It will be interesting to see how much fatigue the Wolves show, in particular Ricky Rubio who played 49 minutes in last night's tilt. He has a tough matchup tonight with Patrick Beverly, who has really emerged as a top flight point guard this season after taking over the starting spot from Jeremy Lin.
