The Toronto Raptors won for the second night in a row as they took down the Minnesota Timberwolves 104-97 Saturday night. Now at the half way point of the preseason, the Raptors have a 3-1 record. The Raptors shot 50% on the night, while the Timberwolves were held to 36.4% shooting. Although they shot poorly, the Timberwolves did frequent the free throw line, going 35 for 50. Overall, the game was filled with a plethora of fouls, including several delay of game technicals on the Raptors.
Here are some notes from the game:
- Austin Daye led the way for the Raptors with 12 points. Tyler Hansbrough was the only other Raptors player in double figures with 11.
- The Raptors' starters didn't play as many minutes considering it was the second night of a back-to-back. The bench was able to come in and show what they can do.
- The Raptors continue to turn the ball over at a high rate. The team had 26 turnovers last night, while Minnesota only turned the ball over 16 times. This is something that needs to be fixed before the regular season.
- The Raptors got solid contributions from their whole bench. Aaron Gray was the only Raptor that saw game action, but didn't score. Steve Novak didn't see the floor due to coach's decision.
