Jamal Crawford scored 20 points on his 38th birthday, and Karl-Anthony Towns, Andrew Wiggins, and Jeff Teague all had phenomenal games as the Wolves beat the Clippers at Target Center, 123-109.

The win (No. 41) clinches at least a .500 season for the Wolves, and the first without future Hall of Famer Kevin Garnett.

Towns had 30 points, while Wiggins contributed 27 points and three blocked shots. Wiggins made four three-pointers, and was perfect (5-for-5) from the free throw line.

The Wolves return to action Friday at New York.
