Wolves In Toronto Friday For Showdown With Raptors
The Minnesota Timberwolves are looking to rebound from one of their worst losses of the season Friday night when they visit the Raptors in Toronto (5:30 pm, AM 1240 WJON).
The Timberwolves lost a must-win game at home Wednesday night against Sacramento 111-108. The Kings had been blown out 116-92 the night before in Indiana.
Minnesota is 18-20 on the season and are starting to run out of time to gain ground in the Western Conference playoff race. The Wolves are in 11th place in the West and trail Phoenix by four games for the eighth and final playoff spot.
Toronto is just 19-18 on the season but is in third place in the much weaker Eastern Conference.
