Barea appeared to take an accidental kick in the face from teammate Dante Cunningham as he fell and also had a large red bump on the left side of his head. He said he couldn't remember the incident.

"It was bad luck," Barea said. "All I remember is I drove baseline, I went up, made the shot and that was it. Then I was (in the locker room)."

Barea said he hoped to play Monday when the Timberwolves make their first visit to Brooklyn to face the Nets.

"I'll probably play," Barea said. "It all depends on the trainers. I've got to take another test tomorrow to make sure.

"My face hurts, I've got a couple of cuts in mouth but other than that I'm all right," Barea.

Winless in two games coming in, Toronto was playing the second game of two straight. The Raptors lost 107-100 at Brooklyn on Saturday night, the Nets' first game in their new home.

Casey said Anderson's contribution off the bench was especially important given that the Raptors were still tired from their trip to storm-ravaged New York.

"He is the man," Casey said of Anderson. "He came up big."

Lowry's 20-point performance was his third in three games.

"He's a very good player and he really gets them going," Adelman said of Lowry, who he once coached in Houston.

The Raptors scored 27 points off of 16 Minnesota turnovers in the first half, and got seven points from Lowry in a 12-4 run over the final 3:10 of the second quarter to open a 56-47 lead at the intermission.

The Timberwolves were more careful in the third, committing just three turnovers and cutting the deficit to 79-73 heading into the fourth. Kirilenko scored seven points in the third and Pekovic had six.

Landry Fields opened the fourth with a dunk and Toronto scored nine of the first 12 points of the quarter, opening an 88-76 lead on Anderson's 3-pointer with 8:47 left.

NOTES: Toronto rookie Terrence Ross scored his first NBA basket on a jump shot in the fourth. ... Raptors F Linas Kleiza missed his second straight game because of personal reasons. ... Minnesota made 18 of 32 field goal attempts in the first half but went 11 for 32 in the second half.
