As mentioned in the game preview, Ricky Rubio is once again utilizing his MBA degree (Master of Basketball Assists):
Over his last 5 games, Rubio dished out a franchise-record 70 assists. Only James Harden (71) had more over a five-game stretch this season.— Timberwolves PR (@Twolves_PR) January 19, 2017
As for the Clippers, they come into the night winners of their last six games, but are now without Blake Griffin (knee) and Chris Paul (thumb). Griffin is expected to return in the next week or two, while Paul is expected to be sidelined 6-8 weeks after undergoing successful surgery on his thumb this week.
The game thread is open and ready for business. Be kind. Unwind. Let’s go Wolves.
