Game Notes

  • The Clippers will face Patrick Beverley for the first time since he was traded from the Clippers (originally to the Memphis Grizzlies, but later re-routed to Minnesota). Although this is a preseason game, Clips Nation knows that Pat will be looking to make a statement. Check out this clip to learn how Pat Bev is influencing Minnesota already.
  • Marcus Morris, Sr. is not listed on the injury report as of yet, so we might actually see him tonight. He has been held out from the preseason thus far for “rest,” although it is unclear why the Clippers have been so intent on holding him back. Last season, Marcus dealt with knee soreness, so the Clippers might be trying to limit his minutes as a precaution. Hopefully, he feels good enough to give us a shift.
  • This will be our last chance to see Hartenstein and Harry Giles III before the Clippers (presumably) have to choose who will take the final roster spot. Thus far, it seems to Hartenstein’s to lose, but Giles might be able to show enough to earn a two-way deal or a roster spot outright in addition to Hartenstein (either of which would require the Clippers to cut someone else currently on the roster, as has been discuss on our podcast).

That about does it for this preview of the Clippers’ preseason game against the Timberwolves. Comment below!
