Wolves lose crucial home game to Raptors


At this point of the season, every loss is a bad loss for the Timberwolves, who are trying to chase down one of the final playoff spots in the Western Conference.

Sunday's loss was particularly bad as they dropped a game at Target Center to the Toronto Raptors, 111-104.

Kevin Love had 26 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists but it was enough to overcome a triple-double by Raptors guard Kyle Lowry, who finished with 20 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists.

Minnesota has started a crucial four-game homestand with two losses in three games and their hopes of climbing higher than 10th in the West look bleak.
