TORONTO (CP) – Kyle Lowry and the Toronto Raptors made up for a sub-par road performance by continuing their mastery of the Minnesota Timberwolves.

Lowry had 24 points to lead Toronto to a 94-89 victory before an Air Canada Centre sellout crowd of 19,800, the Raptors’ 10th straight home win over Minnesota and 17th in 18 head-to-head meetings.

Anticipating a good night of basketball could take the Mondays out of a Monday, especially if the Raptors could continue their winning ways. And that’s what they did.

Game Preview: Raptors vs. Nets

Tonight presents a pretty important divisional game for a relatively unchallenged front-running Raptors team when the host the Brooklyn Nets (7 PM, TSN2, Sportsnet 590 The FAN)

Since players from the Raptors locker were pulled from the lineup before the December 8th game in Los Angeles, the remaining group has banded together and integrated pieces fairly seemlessly from Sacramento. Beating the Lakers that night in Kobe Bryant’s return was considered an upset, as was beating the Bulls in Chicago (twice). Same with Dallas, definitely in OKC and indubitably versus ...
