Minnesota Timberwolves Jeff Teague looks to pass as Memphis Grizzlies Ivan Rabb defends in the first half of an NBA basketball game Monday

The game Wednesday had a 7.5 rating in the Minneapolis/St. Paul market - topping the previous high of 6.5, which came on April 14, 2004 in a 107-90 victory over Memphis, which was the final game of the last season in which the Wolves made the playoffs.

Below is the schedule for Houston's First Round series vs. Minnesota (all games to be broadcast on either KBME 790 AM or KTRH 740 AM). They lost twice at Dallas, including a March 6 defeat in which Jokic and Murray were benched for the entire fourth quarter.

Eric Moreland also had a big night, posting career highs with 16 points and 17 rebounds along with four assists, four steals and four blocks. After Taj Gibson hounded Jokic to force an air-balled 3-point try, Jeff Teague swished a floater with 1:19 left in overtime to put the Wolves back in front for good.

The Nuggets won six straight entering tonight - all against winning teams - but it wasn't enough.

Jackson, who played this past season with the Beijing Ducks, signed with the Rockets yesterday and played 34 minutes in Houston's regular season finale at Sacramento. In fact, it would come down to the final game of the season against the Denver Nuggets.

After the game, the Timberwolves expressed to ESPN how emotional he was with the team making the playoffs because of a promise he made to former Timberwolves head coach Flip Saunders, who passed away in October 2015.


Karl-Anthony Towns of the Minnesota Timberwolves rebounds the ball against Gary Harris and Jamal Murray of the Denver Nuggets.

Six players are averaging at in double figures for the Rockets, they are James Harden (30.4), Chris Paul (18.6), Eric Gordon (18.0), Clint Capela (13.9), Gerald Green (12.1) and Trevor Ariza (11.7).

Minnesota was getting what they needed out of Jimmy Butler and Karl-Anthony Towns; each had 16 points in the first half. He coolly knocked down a pair of free throws, clinching the game and ending the longest-running playoff drought in National Basketball Association history.

On the season, the Timberwolvers are averaging 109.5 points, 42.0 rebounds and 22.7 assists per game. Boston finished second in the Eastern Conference. Moreover, the Wolves' inability to guard the three-point line will lead to an early exit.

Rookie swingman Luke Kennard scored a career-high 23 points, and Detroit blew out Chicago in a game featuring teams that missed the playoffs. Towns chipped in a double-double (26 points, 14 rebounds) and Andrew Wiggins had 18 points. But then neither team could make a shot over the final two minutes sending the game to overtime.
