Clippers-Timberwolves Preview

(AP) -- After relying on some terrific defense to grind out two impressive road wins, the Los Angeles Clippers could have a tougher time pushing the pace than it might seem in the finale of a four-game trip.

Continuing to play well without Blake Griffin, the Clippers look for a seventh win in nine games Monday night and an 11th straight victory over a last-place Minnesota Timberwolves team that's no longer laying down for anyone.

The Clippers (39-21) were putting up 110.4 points per 100 possessions - tied with Golden State for league's most efficient offense - prior to Griffin's injury, and they've only fallen to third (107.7) with the five-time All-Star on the shelf.
