Reggie Jackson and Patrick Beverly stepped it up in this game, as they forced turnovers, create shots not just for themselves, but for others, and played with a sense of urgency.Collectively, the Clippers dominated on both sides of the floor and did not give the Timberwolves any type of confidence that they could come back in the game.
The Clippers had seven players that scored in double figures.
