The Minnesota Timberwolves are starting to free fall a little, and they’re in the underdog role here, where they lose by an average of 9.4 points. The Los Angeles Clippers are as healthy as they’ve been all season, and we’re starting to see them find their form a bit. I like the Clippers to keep the momentum rolling and get a comfortable win over a struggling and banged up Timberwolves side.
