The Minnesota Timberwolves will host the Los Angeles Clippers in the Western Conference Play-In Tournament. The winner will face the No. 2 seed Memphis Grizzlies, while the loser takes on the winner of the other Play-In game.
Minnesota has looked much stronger in Anthony Edwards‘ second year on the roster, finishing with a 46-36 record. The rebuild of the Timberwolves is finally coming together with young stars such as Edwards, Karl-Anthony Towns, and D’Angelo Russell.
Despite missing Kawhi Leonard all season and Paul George for three months, the Clippers put together a 42-40 record. And with George back from injury just in time, Los Angeles looks strong heading into this matchup.

Timberwolves vs Clippers Player Props
Karl-Anthony Towns, Timberwolves: To Record a Double-Double (-260)
WAGER: 3 Units
A double-double is essentially a lock to happen for the three-time All-Star. Towns is one of the top big men in the game, ranking 11th in the NBA in points per game (24.6) and 14th in rebounds (9.8). He has 40 double-doubles on the year, including a triple-double.
Towns has been crucial in turning the Minnesota organization around. While stars around him left over the years, Towns stayed with the Timberwolves. The last time Minnesota made the playoffs was in 2018 when they lost in the first round 4-1.

Paul George, Clippers: Over 27.5 Points (-105)
WAGER: 1 Unit
I know this seems high for a player that just came back from injury, but this is Playoff P we’re talking about.
Since joining the team, George has been unsuccessful in getting the Clippers to the NBA Finals. With him returning to close out the season, the Clippers enter this matchup on a five-game win streak.

There’s talk of Leonard returning later in the playoffs, and if he does, this Clippers team will be even more dangerous. George was dominant last year in the playoffs and will look to replicate that same performance this year as the lone active All-star on the roster.
Anthony Edwards, Timberwolves: Over 31.5 Points + Rebounds + Assists (-110)
WAGER: 1 Unit
Anthony Edwards has taken a big step up in year two with the Timberwolves. In 72 games this season, Edwards has gone Over this total in five of his last 10 games while also eclipsing the 31.5 total seven times throughout the season with just points alone.
Most importantly, in the four games against the Clippers this season, Edwards has gone Over this total three times.
Edwards is one of the most electrifying players in the NBA, and with a chance to get his team back to the playoffs for the first time since 2018, he’ll put the game in his hands if he has to. Don’t be surprised if Edwards clears this total in scoring alone.
Timberwolves vs Clippers Game Props
Double Result: Timberwolves/Clippers (+525)
WAGER: 1 Unit
While I believe the Clippers will win this one, they won’t take control of the game until the final frame.
The Timberwolves are the No. 1 scoring team in the league, so they’ll come out firing from the jump. Los Angeles won’t be prepared for all the scoring to start, and they’ll be down between 6-10 points going into halftime.
George will take over in the second half, giving the Clippers the spark they need to overcome the deficit.
