The Minnesota Timberwolves dropped their eighth straight game on Thursday night, falling to the Los Angeles Clippers by 13, 95-82. Blake Griffin scored 19 points and grabbed 13 rebounds in the win for the Clippers.
The Timberwolves played without Kevin Love, who was injured during Wednesday night's loss to the Denver Nuggets when JaVale McGee's elbow found Love's face. Love suffered a mild concussion and a neck strain. Despite Love being out, the Timberwolves were up one at the half, but the Clippers outscored the T-Wolves 48-34 in the second half.
Jose Barea scored 10 points and had 11 assists, but did not score in the second half and only had one assist. Nikola Pekovic scored a team-high 17 and Michael Beasley had a double-double with 14 points and 10 rebounds off the bench.
Minnesota plays next on Saturday against Oklahoma City.
