Clippers send hobbling Wolves to fifth straight loss, 90-77

Author:

The slumping Wolves lost a fifth straight game Thursday night, 90-77 to the Clippers at Target Center.

Luke Ridnour's 21 points kept Minnesota in the game, but Los Angeles dominated the fourth quarter, outscoring the Wolves, 22-14.

Ricky Rubio made his first start of the season, but he struggled and finished with four points and six assists.

It's was so bad that Rubio missed the easiest documented shot in NBA history. Maybe basketball history.

L.A. star Blake Griffin scored 20 points and Jamal Crawford added 22 off the bench.

Meanwhile, the injuries continue to pile up.

Nikola Pekovic was forced to leave the game in the third with a thigh contusion. Alexey Shved was also injured, as he left in the fourth quarter with a sprained ankle. Updates on both players are expected today.
