Only two games are on deck for tonight, but both feature some of the league’s best guards, including Rookie of the Year runner-up Donovan Mitchell.

NBA: Playoffs-Oklahoma City Thunder at Utah Jazz Chris Nicoll-USA TODAY Sports

(1) Houston Rockets at (8) Minnesota Timberwolves - 8:00 PM, TNT

Jeff Teague (23 points, 8 assists) got the best of Chris Paul in Game 3 as the Minnesota Timberwolves won their first postseason game in 14 years. For some reason, Derrick Rose is still taking more shots per game than Karl-Anthony Towns, but if the former MVP can be counted on for 15-20 points/game, the Wolves might be able to head back to Houston tied 2-2.

(4) Oklahoma City at (5) Utah - 10:30 PM, TNT

Ricky Rubio may have posted a triple-double on Saturday, but Russell Westbrook said in no uncertain terms that the Jazz point guard won’t have a repeat performance any time soon. Also... I know what they’re trying to do with those Utah Jazz City jerseys, but they need to fire those things into the sun.
