Minnesota Timberwolves vs Los Angeles Clippers prediction

The Los Angeles Clippers beat the Timberwolves last week, so I like their chances at home. However, check the injury reports before betting this one. The Clippers have a questionable PG13 and Leonard. The Timberwolves have a questionable Edwards, Gobert, Anderson Morris. The line tells me the Timberwolves are expected to be in far worse shape at tip off. I can't take the Timberwolves seriously if they're down so much production. It's Clippers or pass for me in what could have been an intriguing game if at full strength.
