The LA Clippers are looking to get back on track vs. the Minnesota Timberwolves
Looking to avoid a three-game losing streak, the LA Clippers are hosting the Minnesota Timberwolves on Tuesday night. Having dropped their last two games, the Clippers are in danger of falling into the play-in picture, and a loss to Minnesota would put them on the verge of doing exactly that.
The Clippers enter this game tied in the loss column with the 7th seed Warriors. A loss on Tuesday, combined with wins from Golden State and Dallas, would put the Clippers in 7th. Looking to avoid this outcome, the Clippers have to take care of business and get a win against a shorthanded Timberwolves team.
With Ivica Zubac being upgraded to questionable for the Clippers, they may end up with their full team available for this one. Zubac is the only player on the injury report, and his upgraded status suggests he may be ready to return. For the Timberwolves, they remain without Karl Anthony-Towns. Rudy Gobert is being listed as probable, and Jaylen Nowell is being listed as questionable.
This is a major game for both teams, as the Clippers are looking to avoid the play-in, while the Timberwolves are trying to avoid falling out of the play-in. With roughly 20 games remaining in the season, a lot of outcomes are still possible, but each game become increasingly important as the season winds down.
