Minnesota Timberwolves vs. Houston Rockets, 4-15

Jimmy Butler had no interest in divulging any information regarding the wrap he had on his wrist prior to Game 1 of the playoffs on Sunday.

No one expected the eighth-seeded Wolves to win Game 1 - many don't expect them to win a game in this series - but Sunday set up well for the upset. The Minnesota Timberwolves are averaging 109.5 points on 47.6 percent shooting and allowing 107.3 points on 47.5 percent shooting. Houston has seen the over go 5-1 in their last 6 games following a straight up loss of more than 10 points and 5-2 in their last 7 vs. a team with a winning straight up record.

Instead, the Rockets went on a run. It will be up to Jimmy Butler to stop James Harden, arguably the most exciting scorer in the league.

Police hadn't found the bodies of Devonte Hart and his adoptive sisters, 16-year-old Hannah Hart and 12-year-old Sierra. The bodies of three of their children - Markis, 19, Jeremiah, 14, and Abigail, 14 - were found nearby.

Harden finished with 44 points and eight assists, carrying the Rockets to a 1-0 series lead. They will have home court advantage during the seven-game series against the Timberwolves, who made the playoffs for the first time in 13 years. He carried Houston in the second half like Capela did in the first.

After acquiring Chris Paul this past offseason, the Rockets have taken head coach Mike D'Antoni's elite offensive system to greater heights, shooting more 3s than 2s and having a Hall of Fame point guard on the floor at all times.

In the last regular season meeting between the two teams in March, Gerald Green was ejected in the fourth quarter for coming to Chris Paul's defense after Minnesota's Gorgui Dieng pushed Paul down after a foul.

The Wolves are hung tough, and had a chance to tie the game in the closing seconds, but the Rockets escaped with a three-point win.

This is a common occurrence too with many teams around the National Basketball Association living with their bigs switching on guards in an attempt to deal with the vast number of pick-and-rolls that make up most offenses. He got off to a great start, and it continued all game long, as he finished with 27 points and 10 rebounds. While his contributions are welcomed by the Wolves, they're not enough.

Ryan Anderson, who averaged 12 points and shot 50 percent from the 3-point line in four games against the Wolves, is likely out with an ankle injury.

Tesla's Model 3 stands out for its sleek, minimalist design, but it's the autopilot system that's been getting renewed attention. At one point during the interview, Musk did not have his hands on the wheel and the vehicle beeped at him to retake the wheel.
