Jerry Zgoda missed the entire Kevin Garnett era, but he's back covering the Timberwolves after working the beat for their first four seasons two decades ago. In between, he covered a bit of everything: Gopher men's and women's basketball and NCAA athletics, golf, outdoor recreation, sports media and a little Vikings and Twins.

Ridnour to start, Shved off the bench tonight vs. Clippers

Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman will go with continuity, experience, ball handling over size in his first game back on the bench.

He has decided to keep veteran Luke Ridnour in the starting lineup beside Ricky Rubio and bring Alexey Shved off the bench now that Shved is back tonight after spraining his ankle against these very Clippers two weeks ago.

The Wolves are getting Shved, Adelman and starting center Nikola Pekovic back in the lineup tonight after time away while the Clippers will play without All-Star point guard Chris Paul and veteran Chauncey Billups.

A couple other tidbits tonight:

* The NBA today named Wolves forward Kevin Love its Kia Community Assist Award winner for December for his efforts in the community.

He was honored in part for winter coat drive that collected more than 2,500 coats.

* Did you see the big trade in the NBA tonight?

Memphis sending Rudy Gay to Toronto in a three-way deal that brings Ed Davis, Tayshaun Prince and Austin Daye to the Grizzlies and send Jose Calderon to the Pistons,
