Los Angeles Clippers vs Minnesota Timberwolves

Where: Target Center, Minneapolis, Minnesota

When: Monday, February 11, 2019 8:00pm Eastern

We have a National Basketball Association matchup as our focus when the Los Angeles Clippers travel to Minneapolis and a contest on Monday night with the Minnesota Timberwolves. The Clippers are coming off a come from behind rout of the Boston Celtics and Minnesota and are looking more and more like a lottery team than a team many preseason pundits felt could give the Warriors a run for the Western Conference title.

Clippers Historic Come From Behind Road Win over Boston

The Clippers made big moves at the trade deadline and went into Boston on Saturday night a heavy underdog. Then Kyrie Irving made the mistake of playing defense, the Clippers came back from a 28-point deficit to defeat the Celtics in their own building by a score of 123-112. Eight Clippers scored in double figures, led by Montrezl Harrell and his 21 points and six rebound off the bench. The win keeps the Clippers one game in front of the Sacramento Kings for the eighth seed in the Western Conference.

Los Angeles isn’t listing any injuries for this game on Monday night with Minnesota.

The Clippers won their first meeting this season by a score of 120-109. Los Angeles has a road record of 16 wins and 14 losses and are working on a one-game winning streak.

Louis Williams leads the Clippers with a scoring average of 19.2 points, 5.3 rebounds and three assists. Over his past five games, Williams is averaging 22.6 points, 5.2 assists, 2.6 rebounds and 1.6 made triples per game.

Danilo Gallinari is finally back from injury, and when he is on the floor, the Clippers are a much different basketball team. Gallinari scored 19 points, hauled down 10 boards and dropped four dimes in 29 minutes against the Celtics.

Over their last five games, Los Angeles is scoring an average of 109.2 points, 8.2 offensive rebounds, 35 defensive rebounds and 22.6 assists per game over their last five games.

Timberwolves Have Lost Four Straight

The Minnesota Timberwolves are a franchise that is sinking and sinking fast. They lost three consecutive road games to lottery teams (Memphis, Orlando and New Orleans) and have lost four consecutive games. The combined disparity? Just 18 points separated Minnesota from winning four consecutive games. Sadly, the NBA isn’t a horseshoe contest and they will need to figure out how to win a few of those close ones. Currently, the Timberwolves are 5.5 games behind the Clippers for the eighth spot in the West, but time is starting to catch up with them and they need wins NOW.

Derrick Rose and Jerryd Bayless are both listed as questionable for Monday night with lower leg injuries. That leaves Jeff Teague as the only true point guard on their roster for Monday night.

Minnesota lost by 11 points the last time these two sides met, so maybe they have revenge on their mind on Monday. The Timberwolves have a home record of 17 wins and 10 losses and are on a four-game losing streak.

Karl-Anthony Towns leads the Timberwolves in scoring, averaging 23.1 points, a team-leading 12.1 rebounds and leads the squad with 1.8 blocked shots per game. Over his last five games, Towns is averaging 26.4 points, 11.8 rebounds and four assists per game.

Over the last five games, the Timberwolves are scoring an average of 108 points, grabbing 12.2 offensive rebounds, 33.6 defensive rebounds and dishing 24.6 assists per game this season.

The Bottom Line What to bet on this game.

Full-Game Side Bet
Rating:

The Clippers are playing their fourth road game in seven nights, and I don’t care who you are, that’s going to make a difference. Minnesota has lost four straight and probably won’t want to listen to the fans boo if they put on another lackadaisical effort. Hopefully the Timberwolves and the two days rest will be enough to get them over the hump. I’m rolling with Minnesota on Monday.

Prediction: Timberwolves

Full-Game Total Pick
Rating:

When I added everything together, I came up with 216.2 points and I think that might be a bit low. I see Towns and Wiggins going off and I think the Clippers deeper bench is going to push the Timberwolves. I see Minnesota winning this game but I’m playing the over at 216 points and below on Monday.

Prediction: Over
