There were a few surprises to announce before Monday night’s Raptors vs. Timberwolves game. Kyle Lowry was in, Serge Ibaka was out, and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson was to get the start against the talented (and large) Karl-Anthony Towns. In theory, the new look T-Wolves, fresh off a satisfying streak-breaking win and welcoming aboard a healthy D’Angelo Russell, could have been considered the favourites. In theory. Instead, Toronto extended their win streak to 15 games — a new Canadian professional sports record — with a 137-126 victory. In retrospect: no surprise there.
