Wolves go cold, spoil Rubio's triple-double in loss to Clippers


The Timberwolves went cold from the field in the fourth quarter and fell to the Los Angeles Clippers 110-105 Monday night.

The Wolves went the final 10:18 of the game without making a field goal and were just 1-of-14 from the floor in the fourth.

Chris Paul had a big night to lead the Clippers. He scored 26 points and dished out 14 assists in leading the Clippers to the win. J.J. Redick hit some big shots for 18 points before he was ejected. DeAndre Jordan chipped in 12 points and grabbed 18 rebounds.

Ricky Rubio had a triple-double to lead the Wolves in the loss. Rubio scored 18 points, dished out 11 assists and grabbed 12 boards in the loss.

Both Nikola Pekovic and Kevin Martin missed the game for the Wolves. Pekovic was out with a chronic ankle injury, while Martin missed the game because of the flu that has been going around the team.

Gary Neal, who started in place of Martin, finished with 19 points, while Kevin Garnett was in double figures for the first time since returning to the Wolves. He scored 12 points.

Wolves rookies Andrew Wiggins and Zach LaVine finished with 18 and 14, respectively

The Wolves (13-46) host Denver on Wednesday.
