Minnesota Timberwolves's Latest Performance :
The Wolves have a 4-5 record with nine games played so far. The Wolves must figure out a way how to play together as a team despite what is going on outside of the basketball court. The Wolves have one of the most talented rosters in the league with a dominant big man in Towns and a closer in Butler. Wiggins is the X-factor here because he has so much potential to become great but he hasn’t made the leap just yet. Playing against the Clippers would be a great opportunity to show why it is important to have an all-star on the team. Tyus Jones is capitalizing his chances with Rose being out he had a season-best 9 dimes in his start. He is a solid playmaker and his court vision is very underrated. Teague will still be out because of a knee injury he will miss his 4th game in a row. Playing against the Clippers the Wolves will have to rely on their two All-stars to get the job done.
Los Angeles Clippers's Latest Performance :
The Clippers are coming off a blowout victory against the Magic in their last timeout. The Clippers has started the season playing great team basketball every one is sharing the rock and the scoring on the team is balanced out. Lou Williams dropped a season-high 28 points. He cleaned up in garbage time with 16 fourth-quarter points, but he was probably going to close this game regardless of the score. Boban made his first start of the season and ended up with a double-double scoring 10 points with 11 rebounds and two assists in 23 minutes. He was 4-of-7 from the field and 2-of-6 from the line it will be a tough challenge for him if he gets the start again, he will have to cover Towns but that will be unlikely because Gortat should return to the starting line up. The Clippers have done a great job drafting Shai Gilgeous-Alexander as he has shown a lot of potential to a great guard in this league. Don’t sleep on the Clippers.

Against The Spread Selection: Los Angeles Clippers
My reason for the pick :
The Clippers team basketball will come through again as the Wolves are lacking their key players so it will make it hard for them to compete with the Clippers with what they have going on right now. The Wolves management will have to make a quick decision if the team isn’t giving any effort, my take on the Wolves is that a trade must be made first before they can move forward. Go with the Clippers winning at home in this game.
