Williams and Austin Rivers each had 23 points to lead the Clippers. The second came on a jump shot from the baseline.

With Gibson-who finished with 16 points and 14 boards-and Towns doing work in the paint, Wiggins and Butler had a number of openings to exploit from mid-range or when attacking the basket. They had lost five of seven games before winning Sunday, and then lost to a Memphis Grizzlies team Monday that was in the midst of an 11-game losing streak.

"Once I get back, I want to help any way I can".

NOTES: Clippers C DeAndre Jordan, one of only five players to average at least 11 rebounds and two blocks per game against the Timberwolves since the start of the 1985-86 season, had 21 rebounds but did not record a block against Minnesota on Wednesday.

He did more than just dunk, though, and provided critical energy on both ends as the Clippers trimmed a 19-point deficit in the third quarter to as little as three in the fourth. Austin Rivers also scored 23, while DeAndre Jordan added 18 points with 21 rebounds. "I didn't expect to shoot the ball that bad". But I wasn't, so I'll be better next game.

Gallinari has been on the sidelines since November 5 due to a strained left glute, and Teodosić hasn't played since he sustained a plantar fascia injury in his left foot during the Clippers' second game of the season. He shot a disappointing 35.5 percent, including 26 percent from 3-point range, in nine games before he was sidelined. Starting guard Patrick Beverley has already been ruled out of the season due to a right knee injury, and star forward Blake Griffin is expected to miss up to eight weeks due to a sprained medial collateral ligament (MCL) in his left knee.

Clippers: G Milos Teodosic (plantar fascia) remained out, but coach Doc Rivers said he is close to returning. That being said, Gallinari is fresh off a lengthy absence, so it's unclear if he'll immediately reclaim a role in the top unit and there's a good chance he sees his minutes restricted a bit to ease him back into the swing of things.

It was a step in the right direction.
