Timberwolves Vs. Clippers Score Update: Minnesota Up At Half Without Kevin Love, 48-47

The Minnesota Timberwolves have lost seven straight games and are without Kevin Love on Thursday night against the playoff bound Los Angeles Clippers, but they find themselves up at the half by one, 48-47.

Jose Barea has picked up some of the slack for their missing All-Star, who was concussed when being elbowed by JaVale McGee during Wednesday night's game; Barea has a double-double through the first two quarters with 10 points and 10 assists. Michael Beasley has added 11 points and six rebounds off the bench.

Minnesota had a five-point lead after the first quarter and increased that to a 10-point lead early in the second, but the Clippers came back to pull within two. The T-Wolves extended the lead back to eight, but again, the Clippers responded and even took the lead before Beasley scored to recapture the lead for Minnesota just before the half.
