Record vs. Timberwolves (2011-12): 1-3.
Update: The Clippers had difficulties against the Timberwolves last season, losing three straight before winning the fourth game. The Timberwolves had a five-game losing streak before beating the Sacramento Kings on Tuesday. Kevin Love has returned to the lineup after sitting out the first nine games because of a fractured right hand. Love, a former UCLA star, has gone right back to work, proving he is one of the better power forwards in the NBA. He was averaging 24.3 points and 14 rebounds before the game Tuesday.
