Jimmy Butler was not impressed with Taj Gibson's full-court heave

Minnesota Timberwolves game preview: Dec. 6 at Los Angeles Clippers

The second came on a jump shot from the baseline.

The Clippers twice pulled within five points early in the fourth quarter, but the Wolves answered back, the second time when backup center Gorgui Dieng scored four consecutive points to give the Wolves a 95-86 lead with fewer than nine minutes left. Jeff Teague also scored 19, while Andrew Wiggins and Taj Gibson scored 16 each, with Gibson collecting 14 of those in the first half.

The Timberwolves threatened to bust the game wide open in the second half before the Clippers stormed back. Gallinari scored seven points on 2-for-13 shooting in 26 minutes.

NOTES: Clippers C DeAndre Jordan, one of only five players to average at least 11 rebounds and two blocks per game against the Timberwolves since the start of the 1985-86 season, had 21 rebounds but did not record a block against Minnesota on Wednesday.

"When we just take [three-pointers], it makes us a better team", Teague said. "I was trying to be aggressive and find a way to get the ball in the basket, but it wasn't working, and it has to work".

Buhari pardons 500 prisoners in Kano
Buhari also gave the inmates an undisclosed amount of money to be shared as transport fare to their respective towns and villages. He charged them to engage in lawful ventures to enable them to become useful members of the society.

Forward Danilo Gallinari played in his first game since November 5 after he missed 13 games with a strained left hip.

Clippers: G Milos Teodosic (plantar fascia) remained out, but coach Doc Rivers said he is close to returning. Starting guard Patrick Beverley has already been ruled out of the season due to a right knee injury, and star forward Blake Griffin is expected to miss up to eight weeks due to a sprained medial collateral ligament (MCL) in his left knee.

The Clippers, who put up a vicious fight in their last match-up, have been hit hard with the injury bug already this season, with DeAndre Jordan surrounded by a bunch of players that are unrecognizable to even some of the keener National Basketball Association fans.

If you are able to read lips, Butler definitely yelled "what the f- was that??" in the direction of Gibson, who ran off the court to the locker room while laughing over the whole situation. "He hasn't played in a while, but just having him on the floor means he's another guy who can make a shot".
