Game Story

MINNEAPOLIS (Ticker) -- Donyell Marshall was on target when the Toronto Raptors needed him most. Marshall came off the bench to collect season highs of six 3-pointers and 22 points as the Raptors registered their first win at Minnesota with a 100-91 victory over the Timberwolves. Toronto broke an 11-game road losing streak in Sam Mitchell's first game coaching against his former team. The Raptors had lost their first eight visits here. "We've had a tough go in the last couple games," Mitchell said. "But we know that our shots are going to fall as long as we kept taking good shots." The Timberwolves rallied from an 18-point deficit and got within 74-73 when Wally Szczerbiak converted a three-point play early in the fourth quarter. But Matt Bonner responded with a 3-pointer on the next possession after the Raptors had been held scoreless for the first 4 1/2 minutes of the fourth quarter. Minnesota's Troy Hudson made a jumper to close the margin to 79-77 with 6:44 left before Marshall and Jalen Rose - both the subject of trade rumors - took over. Rose made three consecutive baskets and Marshall followed with 11 straight Toronto points, including three 3-pointers. "I don't know what it's all about," Minnesota superstar forward Kevin Garnett said. "Teams have been shooting the heck out of the ball against us. Tonight, what did Toronto hit, like 50 percent of their threes? That's crazy." Led by Marshall, the Raptors made 10-of-20 from the arc. "It was a good night," Marshall said. "Even the two threes I missed felt good. We got good shots because we did a really good job of penetrating and kicking out." Chris Bosh scored 19 points and grabbed 11 rebounds and Rafer Alston added 18 and a career-high 15 assists for the Raptors, who are 3-18 on the road this season. "I want Rafer to frame this stat sheet," Mitchell said. "Fifteen assists, two turnovers and only three 3-pointers attempted. That's the way to play." Szczerbiak scored 25 points for Minnesota (19-18), which continues to struggle. The Wolves had won two in a row but have lost 10 of 14. "The last couple (of) games, Sprewell carried us," Garnett said. "But tonight it was different. It didn't help that I got into foul trouble. I was trying to generate some energy and ended up having to play cheerleader from the bench." Garnett had 20 points and 14 rebounds despite playing most of the fourth quarter with five fouls. After scoring 54 points in his last two games, Sprewell had only four.
