Minnesota Timberwolves game preview: December 6 at Los Angeles Clippers

Minnesota Timberwolves game preview: Dec. 6 at Los Angeles Clippers

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. The second came on a jump shot from the baseline.

The Timberwolves shot 54.9 percent from the floor.

LOS ANGELES - In the wake of perhaps their ugliest loss of the season, the Timberwolves eked out a 113-107 win over the Clippers on Wednesday night at the Staples Center, their second victory over the Clippers in the past four days. Welsey Johnson has been good a the replacement starter for Gallo, but now can go back to the bench and help give that unit a bit more of a punch.

Danilo Gallinari returned for Los Angeles and scored seven points on 2-for-13 shooting.

NOTES: Clippers C DeAndre Jordan, one of only five players to average at least 11 rebounds and two blocks per game against the Timberwolves since the start of the 1985-86 season, had 21 rebounds but did not record a block against Minnesota on Wednesday.

"I wanted to be better", Gallinari said.

Minnesota led by as many as 19 in the third quarter. Lou Williams and Austin Rivers led the Clippers with 23 points apiece, while Jordan finished with 18 points and 21 rebounds. "I was trying to be aggressive and find a way to get the ball in the basket, but it wasn't working, and it has to work".

"Gallo is day-to-day", Clippers head coach Doc Rivers said before Tuesday's practice, via the Los Angeles Times.

The team is without All-Star power forward Blake Griffin as well as guards Patrick Beverley and Milos Teodosic because of injuries.

Gallinari has been on the sidelines since November 5 due to a strained left glute, and Teodosić hasn't played since he sustained a plantar fascia injury in his left foot during the Clippers' second game of the season.

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.

It was a step in the right direction.
