Notebook: Raptors 111, Timberwolves 104


Peter Kapsner, for NBA.com
Posted Sun Mar 09, 2014 10:54 PM - Updated Sun Mar 09, 2014 10:54 PM

THE FACT: Kyle Lowry highlights the Raptors' road win with a triple-double.

THE LEAD: Kyle Lowry went for 20 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists as the Raptors prevailed over Kevin Love and the Minnesota Timberwolves 111-104 on Sunday at the Target Center in a duel between two hot teams. Toronto came in with eight wins in its last 10 games, while Minnesota had won seven of nine. Lowry's performance was just enough to counter Love's near triple-double of 23 points, 11 boards, and nine assists.

Minnesota ran out to a 33-28 advantage with just under a minute left in the first quarter before Toronto answered with an 18-0 burst over the next four minutes to take a 13-point lead. But the Wolves picked themselves up off the mat and responded with a 17-2 run to make for a tight first-half finish.

Both Ricky Rubio and DeMar DeRozan went to the bench early in the second half with their fourth fouls, leaving the Wolves exposed to the Raptors' deeper bench. Greivis Vasquez picked up the slack for DeRozan with seven third-quarter points, giving Toronto a seven-point lead heading into the fourth -- a margin the Raptors maintained until the end. Kevin Martin added 20 for Minnesota, while DeRozan supported Lowry's triple-double with 23 points.

QUOTABLE: "Kyle's triple-double was huge for us tonight. We needed all of his assists. We needed all of his buckets. And we needed all of his rebounds. It was a great effort on his part."
-- Raptors coach Dwane Casey

THE STAT: The Raptors exceeded their season average of 13.4 turnovers per game halfway through the third quarter while also giving up 15 offensive rebounds on the night. However, their gritty fourth-rated defense held the Wolves to just 43.2 percent shooting while keeping the NBA free-throw leaders to just 15 makes on the night -- six below their season average.

TURNING POINT: The Wolves closed to within three points on a thunderous drive and dunk from Shabazz Muhammad with 4:18 left in the fourth quarter and seemed to gain the momentum as Nikola Pekovic urged the crowd on. But Amir Johnson converted on the next possession and DeRozan drilled a jumper after a Toronto stop to put the Raptors back up seven.

HOT: Lowry is playing elite basketball in leading the Raptors to their surprising third slot in the East. Sunday marked Lowry's conference-leading 10th game with at least 10 points, 10 assists, and five rebounds as he recorded his fourth career triple-double.

QUOTABLE II: "I will do whatever it takes to help my team win. Tonight I got some rebounds, steals and assists and my teammates played well. Everyone played well."
-- Kyle Lowry

NOT: The Wolves' bench continues to be inept, going 4-for-16 from the floor with three turnovers on the night. This comes after they killed the momentum in a comeback attempt against the Knicks on Wednesday and nearly blew a massive lead against the Pistons on Friday.

GOOD MOVE: Casey played Steve Novak for 20 minutes, 10 more than his season average. Novak responded with a season-high 15 points.

QUOTABLE III: "The only shot he missed he was all by himself. He can really shoot it."
-- Wolves coach Rick Adelman on Novak

ROOKIE WATCH: Muhammad is finally getting playing time for the Wolves, providing some much-needed scoring from the bench.

INSIDE THE ARENA: With four minutes in the first quarter, Lowry had the ball stolen by Corey Brewer for a fast-break dunk. Lowry then drew an offensive foul for shoving Brewer to the ground as Brewer defended the in-bounds pass. Lowry let fly with a string of expletives after the play.

NOTABLE: Patrick Patterson was a late scratch for the Raptors. He re-aggravated an elbow injury in Friday night's win over the Kings and is expected to be out 7-10 days. ... Love set the franchise record for most 3-pointers in a season on Sunday with his 153rd make. ... Adelman, claiming he was "bad at math" before the game, played Pekovic 33 minutes Sunday -- 13 more than suggested by the training team. ... In pregame interviews, Casey was asked about his chances to win NBA Coach of the Year, but he politely deflected the question while emphasizing the importance of team.

QUOTABLE IV: "I'm not into that. I promise you. I'm not worried about a job, not worried about coach of the year, none of those individual honors. It's about the team. I preach that all the time."
-- Dwane Casey

UP NEXT: For the Wolves, Tuesday vs. Milwaukee, Friday @ Charlotte, Sunday vs. Sacramento. For the Raptors, Monday @ Brooklyn, Wednesday vs. Detroit, Friday vs. Memphis.
