Full detailed prediction read below
Minnesota clearly does not impress their fans this season: Ryan Saunders players occupy the second line from the bottom of the Western Conference with a difference of 15-32, and currently have a loss streak of 10 games in a row – no other team in the League has such a result.
For a long time, the team from Minneapolis had a problem with the absence of K.E. Towns, but with his return, the situation, has not changed much – the team is losing steadily and can not impose a fight. Of course, the calendar for the Wolves was not the easiest in recent times, but nevertheless, at least with Chicago and Sacramento it was possible to take away victories, and the roster of Minnesota is quite good: Wiggins, Covington, Towns are pretty stable ahead, although there is a number of problems with the reservists, especially after Teague left for Atlanta. Moreover, Timberwolves have a lot of problems in defense.
Los Angeles Clippers
Clippers are in good shape at the moment: they have won 7 matches out of the last 10 and are still in the top three teams in the West. Californians this season very rarely play with both star players in the squad: Paul George was injured, then Kawhi Leonard, or both at once. In the last match, Paul returned to the court, but due to the back injury Kawhi was absent. As a result, Los Andles defeated almost everyone with Leonard, and with George lost at home with the defeat from Sacramento. So far, Paul George does not look as reliable as expected, he needs time to get into his optimal mode. By the way, as the coaching staff assured, Kawhi Lenard can return already to the upcoming meeting.
The main game this season at Clippers is built around the attack, although in defense, when necessary, the team can work out reliably. In all respects, Los Angeles is in the top.

Timberwolves vs Clippers Prediction
The Minnesota series of defeats is too long. It’s time for the Wolves to get out of the crisis. Timberwolves have a big desire. They fought in recent matches, but somewhere they needed more luck.
Problems also have occured in Los Angeles. They are not stable enough recently and their competitors wait for the Clippers’ mistakes with pleasure. We believe that Los Angeles will do their best to get their points with an outsider in order to strengthen their position in the table.
We predict a win for Los Angeles Clippers.
