After the Clippers loss to the Timberwolves, Doc Rivers was asked if Blake Griffin could play on the upcoming 5-game road trip: "Yeah, there is... we're going to run him around tomorrow. He's going to do some contact work but it's not going to be full court because we're not going to practice. But I didn't ask the trainers, so I don't know what they think right now."

One player that had been picking up the slack with so many Clippers starters in and out of the lineup is Austin Rivers. Off the bench the younger Rivers has averaged 8.5 points and 35.9 percent from deep. As a starter? 16.5 points and 42.3 percent from 3. He's up to 15 points midway through the third quarter.

Lauri Markkanen is a special player. Helped Zona hold off USC against that furious Trojans rally.

If you have a +12.1 net rating differential, and shooting 52.4 percent from the field, you'd like to think you're up by more than 3 points. But that's where the Timberwolves are through one quarter. The good news (if you're Minnesota) is Andrew Wiggins is scoring and getting to the line with ease.

The Clippers started Raymond Felton and Austin Rivers in their first game without Chris Paul, out 6-to-8 weeks from thumb surgery. Going small against the Timberwolves wings of Zach LaVine and Andrew Wiggins has led to mixed results. The Clippers lead late in the first quarter, but the Wolves front court had 21 points on 9-for-12 shooting.
