Rick Adelman will have to wait a little bit longer to reach 1,000 career wins as a head coach.

The Timberwolves had an opportunity to put Adelman in elite company, but lost to the Toronto Raptors, 95-93 Friday night at Target Center.

The game came down to the free throw line. Trailing 94-92, Ricky Rubio had a chance to tie the game with a pair of free threws with 1.7 seconds left in the fourth quarter.

Rubio made the first. His second rimmed out.

Rudy Gay scored 26 points and Demar Derozan added 25 to lead the Raptors.

Nikola Pekovic led the Wolves with 24 points. Andrei Kirilenko scored 20. Rubio finished with 13 points and 12 assists.

Adelman's next chance at career win No. 1,000 comes Saturday night against the Detroit Pistons at Target Center.
