Wednesday, November 3rd, finds the LA Clippers facing the Minnesota Timberwolves in their first meeting this season.
Last season, the teams played three times with the Clippers winning all three contests and are on a current 11-game win streak versus the Wolves. The Clippers hold the all-time record having bested the Wolves in 64 of their 121 matches
To suggest this season has gotten out to a rough start for the Clippers is the biggest understatement of this season. Sure, the Clippers don’t have their superstar Kawhi Leonard and are missing Serge Ibaka as well as Marcus Morris Sr.
Yet, other teams are also dealing with missing stars and still finding a way to win. Many of those teams don’t have the depth of LA or another All-Star on their team to lead the team.
That’s not to say Paul George isn’t producing – he is. The problem is this Clippers team doesn’t look connected and defeating the worst team in the NBA (barely) doesn’t exactly bolster confidence they’ve turned a corner.
George got the better of his former team with 32 points, nine rebounds, seven assists, three steals, and a block.
OKC set aside their tanking mandate for a night with good reason. The Thunder owns the Clippers’ draft pick this season so they’ll be trying to win all three matches against the Clippers this season.
LA got fortunate pulling out the three-point win but sure took the tough path by falling behind early and required a 33-20 fourth quarter to cement the win but it didn’t do much to quell the overriding belief this team has ample work to do.
Unlike the Clippers the Wolves weren’t expected to be a playoff candidate this season but got out to a strong 3-1 start. They’ve since lost two games in a row with one being a bit of bad luck (Nuggets) and the second suggesting maybe this team still has ample work to do.
That loss was a 97-115 blowout by the Magic suggesting the Wolves underestimated their opponent. The lesson to carry forward is any team can win on any given night.
In the loss, five Wolves scored in double figures with Anthony Edwards leading the charge delivering 24 points and six rebounds while Karl-Anthony Towns registered a double-double of 23 points and 16 rebounds plus six assists and two steals.
Minnesota attempted 51 long balls but connected on just 14 of them (27.5 percent). Although Minnesota (14) had fewer turnovers than the Magic (16) it was Orlando who got the scoring edge (18 to 10) off those miscues.

Free LA Clippers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
The Wolves need to get back to the same aggressiveness particularly on the defensive end that they began the season with. They have the stars and the ability to win this match if they bring that focus as LA hasn’t looked good on either side of the floor this season.
