2. Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Houston Rockets – Thu., Jan. 18 at 9:30 p.m. ET on TNT
Fit player to watch: Chris Paul (Rockets) – At 32 years old, Paul is playing some of the best basketball of his career alongside James Harden—helping the Rockets try and challenge the Warriors’ supremacy in the Western Conference. Paul has used boxing and swimming in his off-season workouts, and it’s helped him stay fresh and playing with the same spark he had early in his career. If the game against the Clippers is any indication, Paul is still as fiery as ever.
Like Paul, Jimmy Butler has helped out the Minnesota Timberwolves since coming over from his previous longtime team, the Chicago Bulls. The Wolves are fourth in the West and looking like a tough playoff opponent after missing out on the postseason dating way back to the 2004-2005 season.
