Closing in on the second round

NBA: Playoffs-Houston Rockets at Minnesota Timberwolves Jesse Johnson-USA TODAY Sports

WHO: Houston Rockets at Minnesota Timberwolves and Oklahoma City Thunder at Utah Jazz

WHAT: The fourth game of Round 1 for the four teams playing, with both the Rockets and the Jazz leading their respective series 2-1.

WHEN: Wolves and Rockets tip at 7:00pm Central, followed by Jazz and Thunder at 9:30pm.

WHERE: The lower seeds are hosting Game 4, so games tonight are at the Target Center, Minneapolis, MN and at Vivint Smart Home Arena, Salt Lake City, UT

HOW: Both games are on TNT

THE STORY: The Timberwolves won their first game of the series on Saturday, cutting Houston’s lead to 2-1 with a chance to even the series tonight in Minneapolis. The team’s victory game on the strength of an injured Jimmy Butler’s stellar offensive performance and on improved shooting from Karl-Anthony Town, who had a rough start in his first playoff appearance. The team no doubt hopes that trend continues tonight.

In Salt Lake City, the Thunder are attempting to fend off an upset from the Utah Jazz, who lead the series 2-1. They pulled ahead of the Thunder over the weekend thanks to veteran Ricky Rubio’s vintage performance. Westbrook and co. will try to regain home court advantage with a win in Utah tonight.

Who do you have winning each respective series?
