Rockets Vs. Timberwolves: Game Preview, TV Info And More

Could Luis Scola and Kevin Love go for a third round? It's possible when Houston travels to Minnesota, who have won two straight against the Rockets.

The Houston Rockets (17-13) and Minnesota Timberwolves will meet Friday with the subplot of Kevin Love and Luis Scola taking center stage. Just 13 days ago the Rockets lost to the T-Wolves 100-91, a game best remembered for Love's hard foul of Scola (stepping on Scola after knocking him to the ground on a drive). Love denied that the move was retribution for a hard pass from Scola to Love's groin in a game in late January.

The intense games have served Love well - he's averaging 31 points a game against Houston this season. Houston enters the game after an upset of Western Conference leading Oklahoma City 96-95 on Wednesday, where Kevin Martin matched his season high with 32 points and hit two game-winning free throws.
