Clippers tonight AT MINNESOTA When: 5 PST. Where: Target Center, Minneapolis. On the air: TV: Prime Ticket; Radio: 980. Records: Clippers 20-25, Timberwolves 9-38. Record vs. Timberwolves: 3-0. Update: The Clippers have defeated the Timberwolves three times this season, including a 25-point triumph at the Target Center in December. But the Clippers' 103-87 loss to last-place New Jersey on Wednesday was a reminder that every victory requires more than merely showing up. "We could easily be one of these teams in the playoff picture right now," Clippers forward Craig Smith said, "but we're not because some of these games that we should have won and we didn't."

Free-agent floodgates opened even more Thursday and NBA executives started making deals, including two by the Clippers. In one dizzying stretch, the Clippers reached agreements with forward Ryan Gomes and guard Randy Foye, helping fill two big needs in a couple of hours. On top of that, they released a positive, forward-looking statement that all the other LeBron James finalists were putting out not long after James selected Miami. (That is, other than fire-breathing Cavaliers owner Dan Gilbert)

The Hartford Whalers reportedly are close to moving to Target Center in Minneapolis. The Toronto Sun reported Thursday that Whaler owner Peter Karmanos at first favored a move to Columbus, Ohio, but changed his mind because of lack of an arena and now is on the verge of sharing Target Center with the Minnesota Timberwolves of the NBA. Columbus residents will vote next month on a referendum to approve the use of tax dollars for a new entertainment complex.

at Minnesota, 3 PDT, NBA TV Site -- Target Center. Radio -- 1150. Records -- Sparks 14-12; Lynx 13-12. Record vs. Lynx -- 0-1. Update -- After losing for the ninth time in their last 13 games Friday night, the Sparks moved closer to mediocrity. A loss to Minnesota would drop them out of fourth place in the Western Conference, the final qualifying spot for the postseason. The Sparks welcomed back their starting front line Friday night at New York, but Candace Parker, Lisa Leslie and DeLisha Milton-Jones combined for 15 of the team's 20 turnovers in the 69-68 loss.

The Lakers did not practice Monday, using the day to travel to Minneapolis, but preparation for the five-game trip that begins tonight at the Target Center actually started days earlier. The return of once-common blowout victories meant rest for the starters. Friday against the Houston Rockets, Robert Horry and Rick Fox were the only starters to play more than 35 seconds in the fourth quarter, and all five got the final period off two nights later against Dallas at the Forum.

What happens to the Clippers in New Jersey apparently isn't confined to the Northeast. Two days after losing to the worst team in the NBA, the Clippers ventured to the Target Center and stumbled against another franchise already looking forward to the draft lottery. Minnesota moved into double digits for victories thanks to a 111-97 triumph Friday night that left the Clippers in need of a novel approach to reverse their sagging fortunes. A players-only meeting earlier in the day did little to help the team regroup from a 16-point loss to the woeful Nets.
