Clippers barely edge past Timberwolves 109-107

By Alejandro Freixes, CCNN Head Writer

What an intense match this past Tuesday night between the Los Angeles Clippers and Minnesota Timberwolves! Thanks to the 25 points and 10 rebounds from Blake Griffin and Chris Paul’s 21 points plus 11 assists, the Clippers beat the Timberwolves 109-107. ¬†With just 3 seconds left in the game, Nikola Pekovic rebounded Kevin Martin’s missed jumper, only to miss the layup! Kevin Love tried nabbing the ball, but missed again and the Timberwolves fell at last.¬†“My natural instinct was to try to rush it and get it up there, but it sat on the rim and came right off. I would say 99 times out of a hundred times that goes in,” said Love. “I could have dunked it, but I thought I just had to touch it real quick because time was running out.”
