The Minnesota Timberwolves will be on the road to take on the LA Clippers on Monday, January 3rd.
The tip-off is set for 10:30 ET from Crypto.com Arena.
Los Angeles started off as a 2 point favorite and that number is now up to 3.5. The total has gone from 218.5 to 215.
The Timberwolves have been an up-and-down team this year. They have looked good at times, but I do feel they could be playing better than they are.
This club currently has a three-game losing streak. They need to get back on track when they face off with a depleted Clippers team.
These guys have definitely played better than they have in past years, which is a good sign, but they still have a lot of work to do if they wish to be considered one of the better teams in the West.
Recently, it has been very tricky for this group to get all of their best players on the floor. Whether it is the virus or an injury, it seems like someone is always missing from them.
Minnesota dropped to the LA Lakers on Sunday by a score of 108-103. They will get another crack at a team from LA when they face off with the Clippers on Monday.
In the loss to the Lakers, the leading scorer for the Wolves was Naz Reid, who had 23 points and 11 rebounds. Anthony Edwards also contributed 18 points and 4 assists.
The Clippers have not been all that impressive of a team this year. And yes, I get they have battled with injuries, but the good teams figure out ways to make better adjustments than they have.
At the moment, Los Angeles has a record of 19-18, which puts them in 6th place in the Western Conference. If the playoffs started today, I do not feel this crew would go far at all.
They are going to need to get their best players on the court or they will not go very far when all is said and done. It is hard to have success when key people, such as George and Leonard, are sidelined.
This ball club did pick up an impressive win over the Brooklyn Nets on Saturday by a score of 120-116. They will look to build off of that when they face the Wolves on Monday.
Eric Bledsoe was the leading scorer for them in the win over the Nets with 27 points and 4 dimes. It is good to see other players step up when they are short-handed.

Minnesota Timberwolves vs. LA Clippers NBA Analysis:
Even though they will be on the second night of a back-to-back, Minnesota has to come out with high energy in this game. I know a lot of teams are not big fans of two games in two days, but I personally do not want to hear that excuse.
Listen, the T-Wolves are not a great team, but they should be able to take care of a short-handed LA team, especially when they are getting players back themselves.
I am curious to see how the Clippers will come out after beating the Nets. I would expect them to be a very confident group after they beat one of the best teams in the Association.
4* Free NBA Betting Pick: Timberwolves ATS
In this spot, it is hard for me to have all that much confidence backing the Clippers. They may win the game, but I am not sold on them covering.
Given that one team is not so much better than the other, I do not expect to see this game be a blowout. I look for Minnesota to keep up their trend of being good ATS and it actually would not surprise me if they won the game outright.
