Nuggets' Gary Harris exits vs. Raptors with hip injury

Nuggets Jamal Murray Nikola Jokic

Danilo Gallinari scored 24 points and Lou Williams topped off his 20-point night with a long, contested, off-balance jumper that gave the Clippers a 127-124 lead with 6.4 seconds remaining. Lowry left without speaking to reporters. Just like he has all his career, Leonard came up big in the clutch drilling a big step-back jumper to tie the game at 103, but the Nuggets still had seven seconds and a chance to win the game.

It was not just Jokic who lit up the first half stat sheet as Murray also poured in 12 points on 5-of-10 shooting from the field, 2-of-4 from distance.

Beasley's running dunk after a Toronto miss nudged the lead back to 10 for the Nuggets, who led 86-78 after the third quarter.

But on the Nuggets' next possession, Valanciunas was whistled for fouling on a three-point play. That put Denver back up by four, and prompted the outraged crowd to chant "Ref you suck!"

A missed free throw by Juancho Hernangomez with 12 seconds left gave Toronto one last gasp, setting up Leonard's game-tying basket. Beginning of the game, end of the game, they made some tough ones. But fouls by Ibaka and Leonard proved costly, as Jokic had three free throws to clinch the win for Denver. "We'll see how severe the injury is and hopefully we can get him back really soon, but Gary's such a big part of what we're trying to do".

"They wanted to win more than we did", Siakam said. Leonard led Toronto with 16 points.

The Raptors shot a frightful 2-for-12 from three-point range in the first quarter, but still managed to keep it close.

Denver Nuggets center Nikola Jokic (15) drives past Toronto Raptors forward Serge Ibaka (9) in the second quarter at Scotiabank Arena. Among their next dozen opponents are Milwaukee, the L.A. Clippers, Golden State, the Nuggets again but in Denver, and Indiana.
