Wiggins carries Timberwolves to 126-118 win over Clippers

LOS ANGELES (AP) Playing short-handed, the Minnesota Timberwolves grew up a bit.

Andrew Wiggins scored a season-high 40 points and Jeff Teague added 30 to help them hang on for a 126-118 victory over the Los Angeles Clippers on Monday night that snapped the Wolves' four-game road skid.

Without injured Jimmy Butler and Jamal Crawford, the Timberwolves overcame 56 percent shooting by the Clippers and made 33 of 39 free throws - led by Teague's 16 of 17 - to win for the seventh time in nine games.
