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

On Sunday, Butler scored 20 of his 33 points in the fourth quarter of a 112-106 victory over the Clippers at Target Center. Lou Williams and Austin Rivers led the Clippers with 23 points apiece, while Jordan finished with 18 points and 21 rebounds. And amusing. Just don't watch if you're easily offended. The two have played together for years in Chicago and now they're back together in Minnesota, so this is all love. I don't know that positively, but I think so. "I'm glad I was able to do it".

Williams, Jordan and Austin Rivers (23 points) exerted plenty of energy down the stretch to close the gap to 103-100 in the final minutes, but Butler and Wiggins answered and combined for eight straight points to essentially clinch the win.

Minnesota led by as many as 19 in the third quarter.

The Clippers lost their fourth in a row without Blake Griffin and second in four nights against the Timberwolves.

The first came when Dieng manufactured a shot as the 24-second clock ran down, dribbling into the lane before he scored on a spinning move.

"I wanted to be better", Gallinari said. "They kept coming. And because of the way they can score we're always concerned". Only Houston with 13 and New Orleans with 12 have done that more than the Wolves, who are tied with Golden State and Cleveland with 11 times.

"It's a little unusual", coach Tom Thibodeau said pregame, comparing the preparation for the game to a playoff series. "They're the same shots we had against Memphis [on Monday night]".

The big man even scored three straight baskets for his team to cut the lead to three but couldn't overcome Towns and Co.
