The Los Angeles Clippers travel to the Target Center to take on the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night. Here’s a Clippers vs Timberwolves Prediction.

Los Angeles Clippers

The Los Angeles Clippers have been in great form as they’ve won eight of their last nine games overall and they will be eager to build on their three-game win streak after beating the Grizzlies in a 128-119 road win on Friday. Paul George drained seven 3-pointers to finish with 37 points on 12 of 18 shooting, Kawhi Leonard added 22 points while James Harden tallied 11 points with nine assists. As a team, the Clippers shot 55 percent from the field and 15 of 31 from the 3-point line as they took control of the contest with 42-point explosion in the second quarter, before they went on a run in the third quarter to push the lead out to 23 points.

Los Angeles Clippers Team Facts

  • The favorites have won 21 of the Clippers’ last 22 games.
  • The Clippers have covered the spread in 10 of their last 11 night games against teams that held a winning record.
  • Each of the Clippers’ last four games as road favorites following a road win have gone UNDER the total points line.

Minnesota Timberwolves

Meanwhile, the Minnesota Timberwolves have been in decent shape as they’ve won three of their last five games and they will be looking to heat up after blowing past the Trail Blazers in a 116-93 win on Friday. Rudy Gobert led the team with 24 points and 17 rebounds on nine of 11 shooting, Karl-Anthony Towns added 23 points with eight rebounds on seven of eight shooting while Naz Reid chipped in with 14 points but no other player finished in double figures in scoring. As a team, the Timberwolves shot 55 percent from the field and 11 of 31 from the 3-point line as they made a mockery of the Trail Blazers with a 36-15 first quarter and they kept at it until the lead ballooned to 36 points, allowing them to rest their starters early.

Minnesota Timberwolves Team Facts

  • The Timberwolves have won 12 of their last 13 home games following a win.
  • The Timberwolves have failed to cover the spread in each of their last six home games against Western Conference opponents that held a winning record.
  • Seven of the Timberwolves’ last eight games as underdogs have gone OVER the total points line.

Clippers vs Timberwolves Prediction

The Timberwolves could be shorthanded here with Anthony Edwards listed as questionable due to a left knee contusion which is a shame as they will need him to beat this Clippers team who have been the hottest team in the league lately. It’s tempting to take the Timberwolves who open as the slight underdog at home where they have won 15 of 17 games so far, but the Clippers have been rolling and I think they get the win and cover in a close one on Sunday.
