Timberwolves Play Rockets in Mexico City
The Timberwolves play the Houston Rockets in Mexico City tonight at 9pm, pregame on WJON at 8:30. The Wolves attempted to play San Antonio in Mexico City last season but couldn't because of smoke in the arena. The Wolves are hoping for a smoke-less game tonight.
Minnesota is 2-4 while Houston is 6-1. The Rockets are coached by former Timberwolves executive and head coach Kevin McHale. McHale and Wolves head coach Flip Saunders played college basketball together at the University of Minnesota.
