Minnesota has to be careful as they are falling behind the pack a bit in the race for a Western Conference playoff race. Of course the T’Wolves can help their own cause with a win over the Clippers on Monday. As it stands LA holds the 8th spot in the conference with Minnesota 5 GB.
The Timberwolves have dropped four straight but three of those were on the road. LA is an above .500 team on the road but Monday night will be their sixth in a row away from the Staples Center. Does fatigue set in for the Clippers in this one?
Los Angeles Clippers
Although LA has been on the road since the beginning of February, they’ve maintained pretty well going 3-2 on the trip. That includes an impressive 123-112 win in Boston as +11.5 underdogs as well as victories over Detroit and Charlotte.
Monday marks the second meting of the year between these two teams. LA scored a 120-109 win at home on November 5th as -5.5 favorites. Tobias Harris led the way in that contest with 22 points but of course he was shipped off to Philadelphia at the trade deadline.
The Clippers have a more balanced offense now without Harris as all five starters as well as three bench players scored in double figures in the win over the Celtics. Montrezl Harrell led the way with 21 off the bench.
The Clippers boast a top 10 offense but their defense could be a liability on Monday. Over their last seven games LA has given up at least 115 points five times. Minnesota has also been a bit lax on the defensive side of the ball lately so this contest could go well over the 222.5 O/U.
It’s been a successful road swing just staying afloat for the Clippers but they want to end it on a high note. A victory in Minnesota would be a great send off as LA heads back home for a very winnable game vs. Phoenix on Wednesday.
It’s hard to blame Minnesota for their current four game skid as the team has been simply devastated by injuries, especially in the back court. The top four point guards on the squad have all missed time recently but there are some signs that the Wolves are getting healthier.
Jeff Teague returned to action the last time out vs. New Orleans while Derrick Rose and Jerryd Bayless could possibly be back as early as Monday. That added depth changes the dynamic of the Minnesota offense but at the same time, how many minutes will any and/or all of those players get?
Karl-Anthony Towns went for 20 and 12 in the first meeting and he should be in line for another solid night vs. the Clippers on Monday. LA ranks 29th in the league defensively vs. the C position and Towns is coming off a 32 point night vs. the Pelicans.

Free Los Angeles Clippers vs. Minnesota Timberwolves NBA Prediction:
While the Clippers are wrapping up a long road swing, the T’Wolves are back home for the first time in 9 days. That being said Minnesota is still kind of banged up and their 17-10 record at the Target Center is decent, but not dominant. The major question is how LA is going to show up as they wind down a long road swing.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Timberwolves -3.5
The line seems a bit high which points to the notion that Minnesota gets a big win back on their own court after 2 days off.
