The Houston Rockets will face the Minnesota Timberwolves Sunday at Toyota Center, and if the past is any indication, the Rockets look to be in a good position to defeat them.

The Rockets hold a 4-0 season series sweep of Minnesota. Houston last defeated the Timberwolves on March 18, 129-120.

"They have a really good chance. As long as they're in sync and play together the way they have all season, they can take anyone in the league," said Daniel Salinas, a Rockets fan.

Houston is the No. 1 overall seed in the playoffs, winning 65 regular season games. That's a franchise record.

The Rockets also have home court advantage throughout the postseason.

Looking ahead, if the Rockets beat the Timberwolves, they will play the winner of the series between Oklahoma City and Utah.
