Depleted Clippers Host Timberwolves on TNT

Betting On Clippers Basketball

Will Clippers Step Up to Challenge?

The Los Angeles Clippers battle the Minnesota Timberwolves at STAPLES Center on Thursday night. The game will be televised nationally on TNT at 10:30 pm. The Clipshow begin their journey to stay relevant without Chris Paul and Blake Griffin. Paul had surgery on his thumb and is out 6-8 weeks, while Griffin is almost back from knee surgery.

Oddsmakers opened with LA as -2.5-point favorites versus the Timberwolves. The game’s total opened at 201.

Los Angeles was a 120-98 winner as they battled the OKC Thunder at home in their last game. Los Angeles covered in the matchup as a -8-point favorite. The 218 combined points moved the game OVER for totals bettors. Los Angeles plays 10 of its next 11 on the road. They could get Griffin back for some of that stretch. His return is being anticipated before the end of the month.

The Timberwolves were a 122-114 loser in their most recent outing on the road against the Spurs. They covered the +12-point spread as underdogs. The total score, of 236, made winners of OVER bettors. Minnesota was tied with the Los Angeles Lakers for 21st in the league in turnovers heading into Wednesday’s slate of games. This remains a huge problem. The Spurs cashed in 22 points on Timberwolves’ screwups compared to only two points for Minnesota.
