Clippers Better Than T-Wolves

Clippers Better Than T-Wolves

Love was in the air but rarely in the basket as the Timberwolves lost again.  Blake Griffin had 20 points and 10 rebounds while dominating his matchup with Kevin Love and Chris Paul scored 16 points in the fourth quarter to lead the Los Angeles Clippers to a 102-98 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Wednesday night.

Paul finished with 20 points and 11 assists for his 12th straight double-double to open the season, breaking Magic Johnson’s previous mark of 11 straight in 1990-91.

He scored 12 straight points for the Clippers in the final 3:41 to hold off another late charge from the Wolves.

Kevin Martin had 28 points and 10 rebounds and Nikola Pekovic had 20 points and seven rebounds for the Timberwolves.

But Love managed just 10 points on 2-for-14 shooting to go with 12 rebounds for the Wolves, who have lost two straight to start a tough stretch of five games in seven nights.
