Chauncey Billups’ highly anticipated return proved to be a successful one.
Even though Billups only scored seven points on one-of-five shooting last night, his Los Angeles Clippers ultimately prevailed 101-95 over the Minnesota Timberwolves.
Chris Paul led the way for the winning side with 23 points (seven-of-13 shooting) and 11 assists in 36 minutes. Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan pitched in 18 points and 15 points, respectively. The latter Clipper, impressively enough, did his damage on six-of-seven shooting. All in all, five L.A. players finished in double figures.
Kevin Love led the way for Minnesota with 19 points and 12 rebounds, but he got those 19 points shooting an atrocious three-of-12 from the field.
