The Los Angeles Clippers’ recent home stand ended on a positive note, but the team picked up a victory in that finale without the services of the two men that make up its starting back court – Chris Paul and J.J. Redick – with Jamal Crawford and Wesley Johnson instead stepping in and guiding the team to victory.
Now the Clippers begin a five-game road trip at the Target Center in Minneapolis when they take on the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night. Luckily for the Clippers, the Timberwolves are a team they’ve dominated in recent seasons.
Los Angeles Clippers:
Crawford poured in a team-high 32 points to go along with Johnson’s season-high 21 points in a 103-101 win over the Orlando Magic on Saturday in the finale of the team’s longest home stand of the season. That was the team’s second consecutive game without Paul, who missed the game due to a rib injury, while Redick sat due to a sprained right ankle.
Crawford scored 16 points in the fourth quarter of that game, helping the Clippers overcome a 12-point deficit. He finished the game hitting on 10 of 19 shot attempts from the field, knocking down 6 of 9 shots from beyond the arc.
The Timberwolves catch the Clippers in what will be Los Angeles’ first game in a stretch which will see them play 12 of 14 on the road. Interestingly enough, a loss for Minnesota would be its 14th in a row against the Clippers, including six in a row in Minnesota.
The last time the teams met was on Nov. 29 when the Clippers came away with a 107-99 victory in Los Angeles in a game in which Blake Griffin scored 12 of his 26 points in the final six and a half minutes of that contest, with Paul and Redick combining to chip in 38.

Free NBA Prediction:
The Clippers have dominated in this series, and while they enter this contest in a form that is below what we’ve come to expect from this perennial Western Conference contender, taking on the Timberwolves could be just what the doctor ordered.

The Timberwolves have the advantage of getting this game at home, but they haven’t exactly thrown their weight around in Minnesota. The team is 2-8 straight up and 1-9 ATS at the Target Center this season.
