MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Anthony Edwards and D’Angelo Russell combined for 59 points to help the Minnesota Timberwolves overcome a tough night for Karl-Anthony Towns and beat the Los Angeles Clippers 109-104 in a playoff Tuesday night .

Edwards scored 30 points with five three-pointers and Russell had 29 points and six assists to send Wolves to the No. 7 seed in the Western Conference and a first-round game with Memphis.

Paul George finished with 34 points after going 2 for 10 in the first half for the Clippers, who have a second chance to qualify for the playoffs with a home game Friday for the No. 8 seed against the New Orleans or San Antonio. Reggie Jackson (17 points) and Norman Powell (16 points) did their part in the stretches, but the Clippers failed to put the Timberwolves away as they struggled in the first half.
