The Los Angeles Clippers have been a mess lately with a lot of their rotation players out, but they're at home, they have the rest advantage, and they're only losing their last five games by an average of 2.8 points. The Minnesota Timberwolves are on the end of a back to back, have roster issues of their own, and they lose in the underdog role by an average of 6.2 points. The Timberwolves had a small rotation last night against the Lakers, and that's likely going to catch up to them here. I'll lay the bucket with the Clippers at home.
