Wolves Happy With Game 3 Win; Hungry For More

April 22, 2018 05:04 PM

The Minnesota Timberwolves won their first playoff game in nearly 14-years on Saturday night in Minneapolis. Karl-Anthony Towns gave the Wolves a big lift with 18 points and 16 rebounds in their 121-105 win over the Houston Rockets in game three of their playoff series.

"The fans were unbelievable," Towns said after Saturday's practice. "They waited a long time for this win and we're glad we could deliver. If we continue to play this way through the remainder of the series, we'll have a chance to see some very special things happen with this team."


"We matched Houston's intensity," Wolves guard Derrick Rose said. "We went out there and played the way we were capable of. We shot very well from behind the arc and we plan on doing more of the same come Monday night in game four."

The Rockets still lead the series 2-1. Game four is Monday night at Target Center.
