Minnesota Timberwolves vs LA Clippers Prediction & Match Preview – November 13th, 2021 | NBA Season 2021-22
The Minnesota Timberwolves will play the final game of a brutal four-game road trip at the Staples Center against the LA Clippers.
Coach Chris Finch’s team beat the Los Angeles Lakers into submission in their final game to end a horrible six-game losing streak. With a signature win over a Los Angeles team, they will turn their attention to Paul George and the Los Angeles Clippers.
In the Minnesota Timberwolves’ beating of the Lakers, they completely dominated the paint and rebounds. If his defense fails, as has been the case in his six-game losing streak, grabbing more rebounds and scoring in the paint will be critical.
The LA Clippers held the Miami Heat at bay in a thrilling encounter the last time they played. Behind George, Eric Bledsoe and Reggie Jackson, the Clippers were able to maintain their composure in the face of a furious offer from the Heat to return.
After their discomfort earlier in the season, the LA Clippers are beginning to find their form and rhythm. Paul George has played his best without Kawhi Leonard and will be the driving force once again against the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Fixture: Minnesota Timberwolves vs Los Angeles Clippers

Timberwolves vs Clippers match prediction
The Minnesota Timberwolves played like they were desperate to end their losing streak and it showed in their aggressiveness and execution. Meanwhile, the Los Angeles Lakers seemed to be in a rush for Russell Westbrook’s birthday party. They just seemed completely disconnected from their humiliating loss at home.
The Minnesota Timberwolves’ confidence just got a big boost from that, but they can’t expect the same effort from the LA Clippers. Ty Lue’s team has been playing like a well-oiled machine for the past few days. While his offense can often look ugly, his defense has really picked up.
The LA Clippers just showed better consistency, urgency and effort than the Minnesota Timberwolves this season. They could add another W to their six-game winning streak against Minnesota.
