Clippers vs. Timberwolves Game Thread

The Clippers go for the season sweep in their return to Los Angeles.

The Clippers have already beaten the Timberwolves three times this season, and none of those matchups were particularly close. Add in the fact that the Wolves are missing two of their three best players, and this would seem to be a comfortable way for Clippers to return home from a three-game East coast road swing.

But if we learned anything from the Clippers’ win in Brooklyn Saturday, it is to expect the unexpected. So many NBA players are playing for the professional lives right now, and that makes every team dangerous. Besides, Patrick Beverley certainly doesn’t want to go 0-4 against the team that traded him this offseason.
