The NBA lockout-shortened regular season has come to a close and the playoff teams have been decided. Let’s take a look at the Eastern Conference matchups to give you insight into who we think will come out on top.
Timberwolves All-Star Kevin Love has been cleared to return to Minnesota, but it is uncertain when his concussion will allow him to return to the court.
Kevin Love had 39 points and 17 rebounds to carry the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 95-94 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night.
The first three quarters belonged to the Los Angeles Clippers. In the NBA, though, it’s all about what you do in the final quarter and that time belonged to super subs Derrick Williams and Michael Beasley.
Minnesota Timberwolves forward Michael Beasley likely will sit out against the Clippers on Wednesday to allow his troublesome left ankle more time to rest.
Michael Beasley scored 33 points and hit the winning jumper with 2.3 seconds to play to lift the Minnesota Timberwolves to a 113-111 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Wednesday night.
