(37-32) L.A. Clippers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves (40-31)
On Tuesday March 20 the L.A. Clippers arrive at the Target Centre to face their host the Minnesota 76ers. In their last game the Clippers lost to the Portland Trail Blazers 122-109.
The Timberwolves lost in their last outing to the Houston Rockets 129-120
Last season the Timberwolves won two of three and hold a 3-0 edge this season.
The Clippers hold the all-time record having bested the Timberwolves in 57 of their 111 matches.
The Clippers are among the teams mired in the Western Conference group vying to land a seed in the lower half the playoff bracket. Despite trading away Blake Griffin and virtually revamping the entire squad the Clippers have remained competitive.
Unfortunately, the Clippers hit an extremely difficult schedule segment as they close out the season which makes their effort to make the playoffs all the more difficult.
Head Coach Doc Rivers has navigated the trades and the constant turnstile of players who hit the injury bay. And while he won’t likely win the award his efforts should garner some votes for Coach of the Year.
Danilo Gallinari (nondisplaced hand fracture) is hopeful to return at the end of March. Avery Bradley (hernia) had surgery and will be out six to eight weeks. Patrick Beverley (knee) had surgery and is gone for the season.
So far the Wolves have navigated the loss of Jimmy Butler well although their hopes of landing a home seed remain up in the air. Butler will rehab and aim to return to the team in early April in time for the postseason.
Big wins over the Golden State Warriors and Washington Wizards were followed by crushing losses to the San Antonio Spurs and Houston Rockets. Tom Thibodeau has his work cut out for him as the team struggles defensively and capturing wins on the road.
Without Butler the team is utilizing Karl Anthony Towns more which has created conflict with Andrew Wiggins who wants to be a greater focus of the team.
A personal matter has kept Aaron Brooks away from the team and with the addition of Derrick Rose it’s unlikely he’ll see much playing time anyway when he returns.
