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.

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.
