Timberwolves Vs. Clippers: Darko Milicic Looks For Repeat Performance

Minnesota Timberwolves coach Rick Adelman plans to give center Darko Milicic a chance to repeat his latest performance against the Los Angeles Clippers. In Minnesota's last game against Los Angeles, Milicic scored 22 points, grabbed seven rebounds and blocked two shots in 34 minutes. Via Jerry Zgoda of The Minneapolis Star Tribune:

"You hope that happens again," Adelman said of the game Darko! had in here the last time. "He'll definitely have an opportunity against these guys and against the Lakers."

Since the emergence of Nikola Pekovic and a surge of injuries, Milicic has had his playing time decreased. In the month of February, Milicic has played just 36 total minutes. Pekovic, meanwhile, says he is full recovered from a sprained ankle that saddled him just before the All-Star break:

Nikola Pekovic says the sprained ankle he sustained last week is all better and he feels terrific after getting four very needed days of rest.

"I feel really great because we have a couple days off," he said. "I try to use it for rest, try to do nothing. It was perfect. In the right time, in the right time."
