Rudy Gay had 26 points and five rebounds to lead the Toronto Raptors to a rare road victory in the West, 95-93 over the Timberwolves on Friday night.

DeRozan had 25 points and Kyle Lowry added 11 points and seven assists for the Raptors, who beat the Timberwolves for the 16th time in 17 games and prevented Adelman from recording his 1,000th win as coach.

Nikola Pekovic had 24 points and eight rebounds and Andrei Kirilenko added 20 points and six rebounds for the Timberwolves, who led by as many as 11 in the second half.

Jonas Valanciunas had 12 points and four rebounds and Terrence Ross threw down a soaring, 360-windmill jam that would have won him the dunk contest to help the Raptors win for just the third time in 38 games in which they trailed entering the fourth quarter. They are 3-12 on the road against the West.
