Clippers Vs. Timberwolves: Gordon, Griffin Deliver Third Straight Win, 113-90

Don't look now, but the Los Angeles Clippers are heating up. Returning home Monday night after two road wins, the Clippers won their third straight game, 113-90 over the Minnesota Timberwolves at Staples Center. Eric Gordon and Blake Griffin led the way for the Clippers, who have won three straight games for the first time since February 20-24, 2010.

Gordon led all scorers with 36 points, had five steals, and dished out six assists. Gordon made 14 of 23 field goals, including five of seven three-pointers. Griffin had 22 points and 10 rebounds, his 16th straight double-double, and also dished out seven assists. Griffin made nine of 12 field goals, which included four dunks.

Griffin and Gordon weren't the only heroes for the Clippers tonight. Ryan Gomes scored 22 points and grabbed 10 boards himself, making seven of 11 field goals. Baron Davis had 12 assists for the Clippers, who shot 51.8% for the game.

Michael Beasley led Minnesota with 20 points, while Kevin Love scored 12 points and had 10 rebounds. The 23-point margin of victory was the largest of the season for the Clippers, and their second victory of 20 points or more in the last three games. The Clippers have one more game before Christmas, hosting the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night at Staples Center.
