J.J. Redick scored 17 points and DeAndre Jordan had 11 points, eight rebounds and three blocks to help the Clippers win their fourth straight game as they gear up for Blake Griffin's return. The Clippers held Minnesota to 34.5 percent shooting and only turned the ball over seven times.

Karl-Anthony Towns had 16 points and 11 rebounds for the Timberwolves, who have been humming along with one of the league's best offenses since the All-Star break until they hit the Clippers wall. Andrew Wiggins had just seven points and six turnovers and left the game midway through the third quarter with a lacerated chin.
