Taj Gibson's full-court heave confuses Jimmy Butler

On the bright side, though, Jimmy Butler scored 30 points in back-to-back games for the first time this season.

The Timberwolves had six players score in double figures, as Teague chipped in 19 points, Taj Gibson recorded a double-double with 16 points and 14 rebounds, Andrew Wiggins had 16 points, and Jamal Crawford had 11 points. With Jordan and the interior defense preoccupied with Towns, Gibson had a double-double in the first half and led the Timberwolves to a 62-49 halftime advantage.

Williams, Jordan and Austin Rivers (23 points) exerted plenty of energy down the stretch to close the gap to 103-100 in the final minutes, but Butler and Wiggins answered and combined for eight straight points to essentially clinch the win.

It was a bit of fortuitous scheduling for the Timberwolves that they faced the Clippers twice this week after Griffin was injured.

The Timberwolves threatened to bust the game wide open in the second half before the Clippers stormed back.

As good as Towns was on the offensive end, his biggest plays of the game came down the stretch as his two blocks helped the Timberwolves seal the game.

"I'm excited", Clippers center DeAndre Jordan said after L.A.'s shootaround Wednesday morning. The Clippers never threatened again. Patrick Beverley is out for the season.

Gallinari averaged 12.8 points, 4.6 rebounds and 2.9 assists before he strained his left glute in the Clippers' Nov. 5 loss to the Miami Heat.

"Once I get back, I want to help any way I can". Griffin averaged a team-best 23.6 points and added 7.9 rebounds and 5.1 assists before he sprained his left knee during a collision with teammate Austin Rivers in the closing minutes of the Clippers' victory over the Lakers on November 27.
