Looking for a breakdown of tonight’s matchup? This game preview has you covered!

Fun (and extremely crazy) fact of the night:

As for injury news:

So for now, Zach LaVine (hip) will remain QUESTIONABLE and Nikola Pekovic (ankle) is OUT. On the Rockets’ side, Eric Gordon (toe) and Clint Capela (knee) are OUT. With LaVine possibly sidelined, it will be interesting to see who replaces him in the starting lineup (Brandon Rush maybe?) and how Thibs staggers his starters to help alleviate the current issues with bench production (or lack thereof). Get well soon, Zach!

The game thread is open and ready for business. Be kind. Unwind. Let’s talk Wolves.
