The Clippers has had their share of ups and downs with fifty-six games under their belt as they enter All Star break. Closing out their two-week-long road trip, the Clippers end on a high note, with a 98-90 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Blake Griffin scored 29 points and three outrageous dunks that even Timberwolves fans couldn’t deny.
After having to readjust when team leading scorer Eric Gordon was sidelined in January with a wrist injury, Los Angeles has experienced growing pains. Winning only seven games and losing ten, the Clippers look forward to the return of their clutch point guard.
Although Gordon cannot be replaced, veteran guard Baron Davis have been drinking from the fountain of youth, draining three pointers and scoring in double digits.
Tonight marked the return of Clippers Center Chris Kaman after missing 35 games with an ankle injury. Kaman grabbed six rebounds and as time passes will be looked upon to make a solid contribution and help the Clippers after the All-Star break.
With the Clippers victory against the Timberwolves, they have won the season series with a record of 3-1.
As Los Angeles takes advantage of the well needed break, they will look to get healthy and make a strong push for a playoff spot. They are currently second to last in the Western conference and have much ground to make up as they dive into the second half of the season.
For the Clippers, their next game is Tuesday @ Oklahoma City, Wednesday @ New Orleans, Feb. 25 @ Lakers. For the Timberwolves, Tuesday @ Milwaukee, Wednesday vs. Memphis, Feb. 25 vs. New Orleans.
