Los Angeles, CA – Derrick Williams and Michael Beasley came 97 win over the Clippers.
The Timberwolves, winners of five of their last six games, trailed 76-73 after three quarters, but got 13 points from both Williams and Beasley in the fourth to claim the victory.
Williams went 9-of-10 from the field on the night and made all four of his three-point attempts en route to a career-high point total. Beasley was 3- for-3 from beyond the arc and hit 11-of-15 shots overall.
"We took what they gave us," said Beasley. "Coming off the bench is different, but it's not about the bench, it's a team win."
Williams tied the game at 76 with a three-pointer on the Timberwolves' first touch of the fourth.
It was still tied, 80-80, when Williams and Beasley buried the Clippers in tandem.
Williams got it started with a personal 10-2 run, hitting five free throws, a three-pointer and a 22-foot pull up jumper to make it 90-82 with seven minutes to go.
Beasley then took over.
He scored 13 of the Timberwolves' next 14 points and proved versatile during the stretch, making a three-pointer, a layup, several crafty mid-range shots and a pair of free throws en route to a decisive 104-87 lead.
Prior to their fourth-quarter collapse, the Clippers had been in control during much of the early action.
They were up 31-22 after one behind 18 points from Griffin and held on for a 54-51 lead at the break.
A 6-0 burst to start the third staked LA to a 61-51 advantage, matching its largest lead of the game.
"Disappointing effort all around," said Clippers coach Vinny Del Negro. "They have a lot of scorers and a couple of them got hot tonight."
