LA CLIPPERS: LAST SEASON: 42-40, missed playoffs.
COACH: Doc Rivers (sixth season, 20th NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: F Tobias Harris (18.6 ppg), G Patrick Beverley (12.2 ppg), C Marcin Gortat (8.4 ppg, Washington), F Danilo Gallinari (15.3 ppg), G Avery Bradley (14.3 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: C DeAndre Jordan, F Blake Griffin, G Austin Rivers
KEY ADDITIONS: Gortat, F Luc Mbah a Moute, F Mike Scott, G Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, G Jerome Robinson
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Harris will look to build on the promise he showed after coming over in the Griffin trade. Gortat takes over from the departed Jordan in the middle. Beverley, Gallinari and Bradley have the most to prove since they missed big chunks of last season.
OUTLOOK: With Jordan, Griffin and Chris Paul cleared out, the Clippers lack a star player for the first time in years. This group's biggest priority will be to stay healthy after injuries decimated the roster last season and forced Rivers to start an NBA-leading 37 different lineups. Beverley has dubbed this team "Clamp City," saying the Clippers will hang their hat on defense. They face a tough start to the schedule, with 12 of their first 14 games against teams that made the playoffs last season.
MINNESOTA: LAST SEASON: 47-35, lost in first round.
COACH: Tom Thibodeau (third season, eighth NBA season).
PROJECTED STARTING FIVE: G Jeff Teague (14.2 ppg), G Derrick Rose (8.4 ppg) OR Jimmy Butler (22.2 ppg), F Andrew Wiggins (17.7 ppg), F Taj Gibson (12.2 ppg), C Karl-Anthony Towns (21.3 ppg).
KEY LOSSES: G Jamal Crawford, F Nemanja Bjelica
KEY ADDITIONS: F Anthony Tolliver, G Josh Okogie, F Keita Bates-Diop, F Luol Deng
PLAYERS TO WATCH: Butler requested a trade less than a week before the beginning of training camp. Thibodeau has said the Wolves will only grant his wish if they find a deal that makes sense for them, but the likelihood of Butler joining them on the floor after all the bluster is low. Assuming a trade is consummated, the Wolves would almost certainly receive a starter as part of a package. For now, Rose is playing the shooting guard spot after a decent showing down the stretch last season as yet another former Chicago Bulls player to reunite with Thibodeau.
OUTLOOK: Though the Wolves were able to celebrate their return to the playoffs last spring after a 13-year absence, they were already facing a rough road back in a rugged Western Conference that only got deeper over the summer. Then Butler's unhappiness came to a head. The good news for the Wolves is that Towns has continued to improve into one of the game's best big men with a smooth 3-point shot to boot, and at age 22 he already has his super-max contract signed. Even if this season proves to be a step back, Towns will be the franchise cornerstone for years to come.
Clippers aim to continue climb against Timberwolves

The Los Angeles Clippers' climb up the ladder in the Western Conference standings will make its next stop at Minnesota against a Timberwolves team that just emerged from a losing streak.

Hovering toward the bottom of playoff-eligible teams as recently as last week, the Clippers moved into the No. 5 spot in the Western Conference after a 124-113 victory Sunday at New York against the Knicks.

With eight games remaining in the regular season, the Clippers are just two games behind the Portland Trail Blazers for fourth place in the conference at the start of play Monday. If they want to continue thinking big, they were three games out of third place.

As the fifth-place team, the Clippers would avoid an opening-round series against any of the top three teams in the West, although they would be in line to face the Golden State Warriors in the second round.

"Keep playing the right way, keep growing as a team, keep getting better," Clippers forward Montrezl Harrell said after Sunday's victory over the Knicks. "We want to put ourselves in the best position we can to get into the playoffs. Taking one game at a time, hopefully get into the playoffs and make some noise. That's what it's about."

That team growth will take a bit of a hit moving forward after rookie guard Landry Shamet came away with a left ankle impingement during Sunday's game. Shamet, who was acquired from the Philadelphia 76ers in February, is not expected to play Tuesday at Minnesota and could miss "a couple of games," according to head coach Doc Rivers.

Shamet has scored 11.7 points per game in 18 contests (16 starts) with the Clippers. That total is more than two points better than his season average of 9.0 as the sharpshooter has been a key addition to the team's revamped roster.

Shamet has joined another rookie in the Clippers' backcourt, Shai Gilgeous-Alexander, who is in the midst of a string of seven consecutive double-digit scoring games, his longest such run this season.

"We got a good group," Clippers veteran guard Lou Williams said. "Mentally, we are a very mature team. The young guys that we have are mature beyond their ages. We are rolling and in a good rhythm right now. We got a good mix of guys."

The Timberwolves were hoping to put together a good group around young players Karl-Anthony Towns and Andrew Wiggins, but the season got off to a rough start with Jimmy Butler's trade request, leading to the firing of coach Tom Thibodeau and last week's official elimination from playoff contention.

Instead of feeling sorry for themselves, Minnesota got 33 points and 23 rebounds from Towns on Saturday in a 112-99 victory over the Memphis Grizzlies that ended a five-game losing streak. Nobody in the NBA has more 30-20 games this season than Towns' three.

"It's a big sense of relief, in a way," interim Timberwolves head coach Ryan Saunders said of the road victory over the Grizzlies. "I've been part of younger groups before in Washington and earlier in Minnesota where, at the end of the year, it can get tough when younger guys are asked to do more. ... It's just good positive reinforcement."

Minnesota forwards Taj Gibson (calf) and Luol Deng (Achilles) are day-to-day. Point guards Jeff Teague (foot) and Derrick Rose (elbow surgery) are done for the season.
