Gordon stays hot as Clippers' romp past Wolves

MINNEAPOLIS (NBA.com exclusive) -- Eric Gordon followed up a season-high 29-point performance two nights ago against the Washington Wizards with 25 points tonight as the Los Angeles Clippers defeated the Minnesota Timberwolves 120-95.

Chris Kaman and Rasual Butler scored 23 and 21 respectively and all the Clippers' starters scored in double-figures. Baron Davis recorded a season-high 13 assists to go with his 13 points.

"We did a great job of moving the ball tonight," Clippers coach Mike Dunleavy said. "We had 30 assists. When we make shots from the outside it really opens up our game. We had a good inside-outside game going tonight."

After a closely-contested first quarter, Minnesota opened up a five-point lead only to see the Clippers go on a 19-2 run in which Rasual Butler scored 10 points as Minnesota missed nine straight shots. Los Angeles led by 11 at the half.

"The games where we have been really good are the games where we have had that inside-outside game," Dunleavy said. "Tonight with Gordon and Butler making shots to go with Thornton and Kaman in the low post, that's the kind of game, we want to play."

After losing nine of their first 13 games, the Clippers have won seven of their last 11.

Some of that is attributable to their schedule. The Clippers have played their last six games at home and haven't played a road game since November 27. But Dunleavy credits a healthy roster with L.A.'s improvement.

"Getting Gordon back in the lineup, a guy that plays both ends of the floor, offense and defense, that's been a big part of it. Our record with him has got to be pretty good."

Los Angeles' inside tandem of Kaman and Marcus Camby posed a formidable challenge for Minnesota, holding Al Jefferson to seven points in the first half on 2-for-8 shooting.

"Chris has been playing All-Star-type basketball all season," Camby said. "He's been really working on his game. When you throw the ball down there he's going to score at will, so they have to double-team and when they double team, he's making a conscious effort to pass the ball out."

While Minnesota has rallied from deficits of at least 11 points in each of their four wins this season, Los Angeles extended their halftime lead with the help of 10 third quarter points from Al Thornton. Minnesota didn't get closer than eight points in the entire second half.

"Game by game we have been doing a better job of playing four quarters," Kaman said. "Early in the year, we didn't really finish games. We didn't really have full games with four quarters, and I think we're doing a better job of that.

We don't have so many stretches where we give up so many points; we're doing a better job defensively."

After scoring a season high 28 points in a victory over Utah two nights ago, Minnesota rookie Jonny Flynn was held to nine points on 3-for-12 shooting.

"This was a big step backwards in my mind," Minnesota coach Kurt Rambis said. "Both effort-wise and defensive-wise, we took a step backwards."

Minnesota was led by Kevin Love with 19 points and 12 rebounds in the losing effort. He has recorded a double-double in six of the eight since returning from a hand injury that kept him out of the first 18 games of the season.
