What to Know

This Wednesday, the Minnesota Timberwolves are hoping to patch up the holes in a defense that has allowed an average of 116.7 points per game. They will hit the road for the fourth straight game as they head to Crypto.com Arena at 10 p.m. ET Wednesday. The Los Angeles Clippers will be strutting in after a victory while the Timberwolves will be stumbling in from a loss.

Minnesota suffered a grim 133-112 defeat to the Portland Trail Blazers on Monday. Minnesota was down 106-84 at the end of the third quarter, which was just too much to recover from. Despite the defeat, they had strong showings from point guard D’Angelo Russell, who had 23 points and eight assists, and center Rudy Gobert, who dropped a double-double on 20 rebounds and 16 points.

A well-balanced attack led the Clippers over the Boston Celtics every single quarter on their way to victory on Monday. Los Angeles took their matchup against Boston by a conclusive 113-93 score. Among those leading the charge for Los Angeles was small forward Kawhi Leonard, who had 25 points and six assists along with nine boards.

The Timberwolves are expected to lose this next one by 6. Those betting on them against the spread shouldn’t have high expectations for them since the team is 2-4 ATS when expected to lose.

Minnesota is now 13-14 while the Clippers sit at 16-13. Los Angeles is 8-7 after wins this season, and Minnesota is 6-7 after losses.
