Toronto (AFP) - DeMar DeRozan scored 27 points and Kyle Lowry tallied 25 points and 11 assists as the Toronto Raptors rallied to beat the Minnesota Timberwolves 124-110 in Andrew Wiggins' homecoming game on Thursday night.

Wiggins scored 11 of his 25 points in the first quarter but the Timberwolves were no match for the offensive firepower of the Raptors at home.

Wiggins, who was the first overall draft pick in 2014, is from the Toronto area and receives plenty of attention each time he crosses the border to play.

Toronto's Jonas Valanciunas added 20 points and 10 rebounds.

"We just picked it up," DeRozan said. "We kicked in our experience of understanding how to win games.

"We can't underestimate a team like that, that plays extremely hard. They jumped out on us and we had to fight back the whole game until the fourth quarter."

Zach LaVine scored 29 points and Karl-Anthony Towns recorded 17 points and 11 rebounds for Minnesota.
