Minnesota Timberwolves vs Los Angeles Clippers: Lineups, preview & prediction 12/6/17

Minnesota Timberwolves vs Los Angeles Clippers: Lineups, preview & prediction 12/6/17

Los Angeles Clippers guard Austin Rivers, left, goes up for a basket over Minnesota Timberwolves center Karl-Anthony Towns during the first half of an NBA basketball game on Wednesday, Dec. 6, 2017, in Los Angeles. The second came on a jump shot from the baseline.

It was the Timberwolves' second victory over Los Angeles in a span of four days, having defeated their Western Conference foe Sunday at Minneapolis. Andrew Wiggins and Taj Gibson had 16 apiece, and Jamal Crawford finished with 11 points.

The Timberwolves threatened to bust the game wide open in the second half before the Clippers stormed back.

The injury-ravaged Los Angeles Clippers are getting a much-needed boost because Danilo Gallinari is back, while Miloš Teodosić is inching ever closer to a return. Griffin averaged a team-best 23.6 points and added 7.9 rebounds and 5.1 assists before he sprained his left knee during a collision with teammate Austin Rivers in the closing minutes of the Clippers' victory over the Lakers on November 27.

"I wanted to be better", Gallinari said.

The Wolves led 62-49 at halftime and by as many as 19 after halftime.

They didn't disappoint, with Towns adding 12 rebounds, four blocks and two steals to his point total and Jordan stuffing the stat sheet with 18 points and 21 boards.

Gallinari has been sidelined for 13 consecutive games with a strained left glute, but was able to practice with the Clippers' G-League affiliate earlier this week and now feels good enough to make his return to the court. "He was battling with DeAndre Jordan all night".

"Gallo is day-to-day", Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said before Tuesday's practice, via the Los Angeles Times. Starting guard Patrick Beverley has already been ruled out of the season due to a right knee injury, and star forward Blake Griffin is expected to miss up to eight weeks due to a sprained medial collateral ligament (MCL) in his left knee.

There hasn't been any detail yet on if Gallinari will have a minute restriction, but expect the team to be a little cautious with him.
