Timberwolves, Clippers meet for third time

LOS ANGELES -- The last time the Minnesota Timberwolves hit the road, some weaknesses were exposed, making a West Coast swing that starts Monday an opportunity to see what lessons were learned.

For the Los Angeles Clippers, who will play host to Minnesota on Monday night, they will get a chance to patch some defensive holes that led to a 125-113 defeat at Utah on Saturday.

The Timberwolves and Clippers not only meet for the third time this season, they square off as playoff-eligible squads, with Minnesota holding the fourth spot in the Western Conference and the Clippers having recently moved into the eighth and final spot.
