7:00 pm Central
Fox Sports North

The Los Angeles Clippers come in with a 7-4 record on the season, and one of the best offenses in the league, led by Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, with sharpshooting provided by J.J. Redick.

The Wolves lost to the Clippers earlier this year at Staples Center, when their comeback fell just short as Kevin Love missed a point blank tip-in at the buzzer that would have sent the game to overtime. It was, as the games with the Clippers often are, one of the most entertaining tilts of the young season.

The Wolves look to bounce back from last night's terrible loss in Washington, and need to protect their home court, where they are 5-1 on the year.

Expected lineups:

Clippers

Chris Paul
J.J. Redick
Jared Dudley
Blake Griffin
DeAndre Jordan

Wolves

RIcky Rubio
Kevin Martin
Corey Brewer
Kevin Love
Nikola Pekovic
