James Harden led the Rockets to a win over the TWolves with a team-high 19 points to go with five rebounds, five assists, and a steal.
Harden struggled from the field making just 4 of 14 shots, but did make 3 of 6 from downtown. Harden has played 32-plus minutes in each of his last four games since returning from missing two games with a thumb injury, which may still be affecting his shot and his ball handling as he has nine turnovers in his last two games combined.ANALYST: Michael Pichan
Mark Teixeira went 3-for-4 with a solo home run against the Mets on Saturday.
That’s Tex’s eighth home run of the year. He won’t continue to hit home runs at this rate, but it’s not unreasonable to think he can hit 25 or more this year. He has also drawn as many walks as he has strikeouts. And he’s hitting .254 despite a .163 BABIP. That’s mainly because most of the balls he’s hitting are leaving the yard right now, but it’s still encouraging for his batting average going forward. Analysis: Brett Talley
