J.J. Redick better have used some super colorful language there or one of those T's will be rescinded.

Melissa Rohlin

JJ Redick just got ejected.

Arash Markazi

J.J. Redick just got tossed for yelling back at the official.

Ben Bolch

J.J. Redick ejected after flurry of technicals.

Arash Markazi

The reclamation of Spencer Hawes.

Ben Bolch

Spencer Hawes corner three-pointer gives Clippers 105-101 lead for his biggest shot of season, then blocks Wiggins.

Ben Bolch

Hack-a-DJ with 2:13 left. Will be short-lived.

Ben Bolch

Timberwolves duped DeAndre Jordan into thinking he would be intentionally fouled, forcing him to throw up a 25-foooter.

Ben Bolch

DeAndre Jordan snagged that 15th rebound, giving him that many in nine consecutive games and a franchise record.

Arash Markazi

KG pushes Austin Rivers and he pushes back. They go face to face for a moment with KG smiling as he walks away. They both get Ts.

Ben Bolch

Kevin Garnett and Austin Rivers get in each other's faces, exchange words, receives technicals.

Ben Bolch

Glen Davis fouls out with 3:44 left but he was pretty much gassed anyway.

Ben Bolch

Gorgui Dieng too young and athletic there, even for a Big Baby.

Ben Bolch

Just went through Clippers' schedule game by game and really can only find 3-4 bad losses. Not as bad as I thought.

Ben Bolch

Minny got away with an over-the-back there.

Ben Bolch

Austin Rivers to Glen Davis is a thing.

Ben Bolch

Suddenly that Clippers' loss to Nets at Barclays Center doesn't look so bad.

Arash Markazi

Jamal Crawford exits Monday's game at the half with a right calf contusion. es.pn/17Mm358

Ben Bolch

This would be a super galvanizing victory for the Clippers' up-and-down second unit if they can hold on here.

Ben Bolch

Glen Davis should get the "hassle" of the game award.

Ben Bolch

Glen Davis blocks Ricky Rubio, leading to Austin Rivers layup and a 97-91 Clippers lead.

Gary Lee

Ben Bolch

Glen Davis puts back own miss to give Clippers 95-91 lead.

Ben Bolch

This Clippers lineup must have been constructed by MacGyver, because it's working.

Ben Bolch

Oddly, this Clippers lineup isn't terrible.

Melissa Rohlin

After three quarters: TimberWolves 87, Clippers 86.

Arash Markazi

Old school KG hyping up the crowd before the fourth quarter. http://t.co/2H9i1NyXdf

Ben Bolch

Minnesota will be a playoff contender in West in a year or two.

Arash Markazi

Wolves 87, Clippers 86 at the end of the 3rd quarter. Chris Paul with 22 points and 13 assists.

Ben Bolch

Clippers enter fourth quarter trailing Timberwolves only 87-86. All things considered, they're in pretty good shape to steal a win.

Arash Markazi

Jordan Hamilton has 10 points so far tonight. He's bough himself another 10-day and likely more.

Ben Bolch

Austin Rivers misses 2 free throws.

Ben Bolch

Clippers showing some impressive grit here.

Ben Bolch

Jordan Hamilton driving layup gives him 10 points.

Arash Markazi

No Matt Barnes and no Jamal Crawford means we're getting Jordan Hamilton and C.J. Wilcox on the floor at the same time.

Ben Bolch

C.J. Wilcox in the third quarter!!!

Beto Duran

Great guy "@truebluela: Old friend @tonygwynnjr has signed on with the Nationals on a minor league deal with an invite to big league camp"

Ben Bolch

J.J. Redick jumper gives Clippers 84-83 lead over Timberwolves.

Beto Duran

Sweet shirt "@Anthony Slater: By far the best fan reaction from that Whiteside-Len tussle -> vine.co/v/O0e6hUWzw2q"

Ben Bolch

Austin Rivers going to free-throw line. His aggressiveness has been impressive, and needed, in third quarter.

Ben Bolch

Austin Rivers layup pulls Clippers into 80-80 tie.

Ben Bolch

Austin Rivers layup pulls Clippers to within 80-78 before Doc Rivers gets a technical foul.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul has not scored in first 6 1/2 minutes of third quarter.

Ben Bolch

Jordan Hamilton up to eight points for Clippers. Every basket he provides is a big bonus.

Ben Bolch

Clippers will need to come back without Jamal Crawford, the NBA's leading fourth-quarter scorer. Very tall order, even against Timberwolves.

Arash Markazi

Jamal Crawford was really the only offense the Clippers' bench had tonight. Doc will have to lean heavy on the starters with Crawford out.

Melissa Rohlin

Jamal Crawford is out with a right calf contusion.

Ben Bolch

Jamal Crawford will not return because or a right calf bruise. Clippers now officially have an excuse to lose this game.

Ben Bolch

DeAndre Jordan with a one-handed rebound and putback while being held by Gorgui Dieng. Flexes afterward.

Arash Markazi

Jamal Crawford has a right calf contusion and is out.

Ben Bolch

Clippers also are 7-3 in second game of a road back-to-back, so that reasoning doesn't fly here.

Ben Bolch

Spencer Hawes airballs 24-footer.

Melissa Rohlin

Chris Paul passed Sacramento mayor Kevin Johnson to become the 18th all-time assists leader with 6.719.

Ben Bolch

Ricky Rubio's jumper looks oddly ... good.

Ben Bolch

Look, I get teams can have occasional clunkers. But this is happening way too often to the Clippers.

Melissa Rohlin

The Timberwolves went on a 31-10 run after trailing, 36-18.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul has overtaken Kevin Johnson for No. 18 on NBA's all-time assists list.

Arash Markazi

Chris Paul has passed Kevin Johnson (6,711) for No. 18 on the all-time assists list. @Kevin Johnson

Ben Bolch

Would loss to Minny overshadow wins over Memphis and Chicago? No, but it would be another sign why Clips probably won't go far in playoffs.

Ben Bolch

Matt Barnes before the game on his hamstring: "No disrespect to the Timberwolves, but if this is the playoffs, I think I would play."

Arash Markazi

Halftime: Wolves 60, Clippers 58. Chris Paul had 19 points and 9 assists. The Clippers were up by 18 in the first half.

Melissa Rohlin

Halftime: Timberwolves 60, Clippers 58.

Ben Bolch

Timberwolves have a 60-58 haftime lead over Clippers after trailing by as many as 18 points. A letdown within a letdown game for Clippers.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul has 19 points on 9/12 shooting to go with eight assists and three rebounds.

Gary Lee

RUMOR: Lakers ‘unlikely’ to add additional players to their roster. lakersnation.com/lakers-rumors-… http://t.co/AzWMZiGOSd

Arash Markazi

KG and Baby reunited. http://t.co/Sq04NqF4JU

Ben Bolch

If Chris Paul played 48 minutes the Clippers would never lose.

Arash Markazi

Spencer Hawes picks up a T for berating an official after being called for an offensive foul.

Ben Bolch

Offensive foul and a technical on Spencer Hawes. Oh boy.

Arash Markazi

It's Clippers 44, Wolves 44 with 5:55 left in the 2nd quarter. The Clippers led by as many as 18 in the first half.

Ben Bolch

Remember that 18-point Clippers lead? The Timberwolves apparently don't because it's gone.

Ben Bolch

Timberwolves within three.

Ben Bolch

Who is Nikola Pekovic's favorite Kardashian? "Nobody," he says in a scoreboard segment. Ding, ding, ding!

Arash Markazi

Blake Griffin could be back as early as Sunday but the following week is more likely. es.pn/17MaMBO

Ben Bolch

Timberwolves now within five.

Ben Bolch

Timberwolves were down 18 points and are now within seven.

Chris Paul pullup jumper gives Clippers twice as many points as Timberwolves.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul drives and kicks to Austin Rivers for corner three-pointer that gives Clippers 34-18 lead over Timberwolves.

Arash Markazi

After staph infections you want the surgery site to heal completely before returning. A big reason why timetable is about 4-6 weeks usually.

Arash Markazi

Blake Griffin's conditioning and cardio is back to normal and he's expected to start shooting this week.

Arash Markazi

A source said it would be "wildly optimistic" to expect Blake Griffin to return Sunday but the following week is likely.

Ben Bolch

Chris Paul steal and layup puts Clippers up 28-16.

Andrew Wiggins spins around Jordan Hamilton for a layup after missing his first three shots.

Ben Bolch

Spencer Hawes three-pointer. Another thing I thought we would see a lot more of this season.

Ben Bolch

Minnesota crowd is super quiet and polite. And they don't play ridiculously loud music here before/during game. I AM NOT COMING HOME!

Ben Bolch

Spencer Hawes lob to DeAndre Jordan for the dunk, something I thought we would see A LOT more of this season.

Beto Duran

Wow! "@dinodemilio: University of Michigan Fraternities & Sororities Trash a Ski Resort to the Tune of $500,000 dailymail.co.uk/news/article-2…"

Arash Markazi

Jordan Hamilton will start tonight in place of the injured Matt Barnes.

Ben Bolch

Jordan Hamilton officially starting in Matt Barnes' spot.

Arash Markazi

Jordan Hamilton is expected to start tonight but Doc Rivers hasn't made it official yet.

Beto Duran

Used to have KROQ sticker on my VW Bug. Full circle. "@TedStryker: So fun having @Beto Duran on @kroq!"

Ben Bolch

Early word is that Jordan Hamilton will start in place of Matt Barnes.
