Wolves-L.A. Clippers game preview

  • Updated: April 12, 2012 - 7:20 AM

Preview: The Wolves can sweep a four-game season series for the first time since they swept both New Orleans and Portland in the 2004-05 season. They won the season's first three games, two in Los Angeles and one at Target Center and all three with Ricky Rubio on the floor. ... Wednesday's victory at Oklahoma City was the Clippers' ninth in the past 11 games. ... The Clippers, with Chris Paul and Blake Griffin, are the league's third-biggest draw on the road this season, behind Miami and the Lakers.

Players to watch: Griffin has had games of at least 20 points and 10 rebounds 71 times in his two NBA seasons. That ties him with Dwight Howard for second in the league, behind only Wolves forward Kevin Love's 81 games of 20/10. ... Former Timberwolves G Randy Foye is starting at shooting guard for the Clippers and is second on the team in scoring in the past seven games with an 18.9 average.

Injuries: Wolves F Kevin Love (concussion, neck strain) and G Ricky Rubio (knee surgery) are out. G Luke Ridnour (sprained ankle) and C Darko Milicic (hamstring) are doubtful. ... Clippers G Chauncey Billups (Achilles') and G Mo Williams (toe) are out.

JERRY ZGODA
