What You Need to Know About the Clippers
Los Angeles was crushed Thursday by the Denver Nuggets 122-91. Los Angeles’ top scorers were shooting guard Norman Powell (13 points), shooting guard Terrance Mann (12 points) and center Moses Brown (12 points). The Clippers went on an early rampage, emptying the bench. Kawhi Leonard played just 18 minutes, while Paul George played just under 14 minutes.
It was a fourth straight loss for Los Angeles as the franchise seems content to slowly get Leonard back on track after missing nearly 18 months with a knee injury. George was a go-to during his absence, averaging 23.7 points, 6.0 rebounds and 5.1 assists per game going into action Friday.
What You Need to Know About the Timberwolves
Meanwhile, Minnesota managed to pull off a solid win on Wednesday with a 113-106 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers. Minnesota relied on the efforts of center Rudy Gobert, who recorded a double-double with three blocks on a board of 17 points and 12, and shooting his guard Anthony Edwards, who recorded 32 points and seven rebounds.
The former No. 1 overall pick has continued to pick up significant slack in Minnesota’s scoring since Karl-Anthony Towns went down with a calf injury. Edwards is averaging 26.1 points, 6.8 rebounds, 5.1 assists and 2.3 steals per game since his Nov. 30, and has scored at least 27 points in his last seven games.
