Short-handed Clippers Too Much For Wolves
Redick leads Clippers past Minnesota, 89-76
LOS ANGELES (AP) — J.J. Redick scored 26 points, DeAndre Jordan had 20 points and 17 rebounds, and the injury-depleted Los Angeles Clippers snapped a two-game skid with an 89-76 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night.
Austin Rivers scored 13 points as the Clippers, despite the absences of Blake Griffin and Jamal Crawford, bounced back one day after a road loss to Pacific Division-leading Golden State.
Chris Paul also managed just two points and 15 assists while playing 29 minutes on a bruised knee.
Adreian Payne had 16 points and 15 rebounds while starting in place of Kevin Garnett for the Timberwolves, who opened a four-game road trip with their fifth loss in six games.
Minnesota has lost 12 straight to the Clippers since February 2012.
