The Timberwolves have have been up and down this season and are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games on the road. They're without Towns and probably without Russell for this game as well. The Clippers have been playing better lately now that they have Leonard and George back with the team. With that being said, the Clippers have the home advantage and get here in better shape so I'm rolling with them to win and cover the spread on this one.
PICK: Clippers -6 (-110)
