Kyle Lowry had 20 points, 12 rebounds and 11 assists for his fourth career triple-double, lifting the Toronto Raptors to a 111-104 victory over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Sunday night.

DeMar DeRozan added 25 points and seven rebounds and Steve Novak hit five 3-pointers for the surprising Raptors, who have won nine of their last 11 games to climb to third place in the Eastern Conference standings. Toronto shot 58.3 percent on 3-pointers.

Kevin Love had 26 points, 11 rebounds and nine assists, and Nikola Pekovic added 17 points and 11 rebounds for the Timberwolves. Minnesota has started a crucial four-game homestand with two losses in three games, and the team’s hopes of climbing from 10th in the West into the playoff picture are looking bleak.
