The Minnesota Timberwolves are coming off an impressive showing against the Lakers, but it's going to take a little more than that for me to get behind them with confidence. The Los Angeles Clippers have won six straight games, and they're winning their last five games by an average of 11.2 points while allowing 42.6 percent hooting from the field. I need the Timberwolves to string together solid performances before trusting them in these spots on the end of back to backs. Give me the Clips and reasonable number.
