Timberwolves try to bounce back against Raptors

MINNEAPOLIS -- The Minnesota Timberwolves are facing one of their biggest tests of the season when the Toronto Raptors come to town on Saturday.

Minnesota (29-18) hasn't lost three games in a row all season. After a dominant five-game homestand, the Timberwolves lost back-to-back games on the road at Orlando and Houston.

"Things can change very quickly in this league," Minnesota coach Tom Thibodeau told the Minneapolis Star Tribune. "We went from winning five in a row and now we've slipped, and we've got to play with more of an edge and we have to bounce back. The games keep coming."
