What you need to know about the Clippers

Los Angeles managed to escape with a 120-116 win over Brooklyn this past Saturday. The Clippers were without George (elbow) and head coach Tyronn Lue (COVID-19 protocol). They were also without Luke Kennard, Ivica Zubac and Brandon Boston Jr. due to the league’s protocol and all four of those players will remain out on Monday night. 

However, veteran guard Eric Bledsoe poured in a season-high 27 points and Reggie Jackson added 19 points in his second game since returning from COVID-19 protocol. The Clippers have only won three of their last nine games, but they have covered the spread in four of their last six games. They have also covered the spread in each of their last five home games against Minnesota. 

What you need to know about the Timberwolves

Minnesota was within striking distance against the Lakers on Sunday, but the Timberwolves wound up losing in a 108-103 decision. They were led by center Naz Reid, who scored a season-high 23 points and added 11 rebounds. Jaylen Nowell added 17 points, which was his second-highest output of the season. 

The Timberwolves are dealing with COVID-19 protocol as well. Two of their top three leading scorers were out on Sunday with Karl-Anthony Towns and D’Angelo Russell in COVID-19 protocol. They are both listed as questionable for Monday’s game. Minnesota has covered the spread in eight of its last 10 games.
