Raptors 'hopeful' Marc Gasol will play Saturday

Right down the centre Masai Ujiri strikes a balance with Gasol acquisition

But he then hailed the Knicks support for cheering their team despite their 16-game losing record - in what could be a hint ahead of a move to NY. The three-time All-Star entered late in the first quarter and made a hook shot on his first try.

Marc Gasol meets up with Nick Nurse following his trade from the Memphis Grizzlies.

Gasol had seven points and six rebounds as Toronto sent the Knicks to their franchise record-tying 16th straight loss. After Jordan missed a pair of free throws, Green drained three 3-pointers during a 9-4 run - interrupted only by a pair of free throws and a layup from Allen - to give Toronto a 97-90 lead with 3:28 left.

He has been linked with a move to the New York Knicks, the LA Clippers as well as the Los Angeles Lakers.

Mario Hezonja's 3-pointer with 11 seconds to go pulled the Knicks within 102-99.

NY has lost 29 of its last 31 games.

The Knicks took a 14-3 lead on Jordan's put-back dunk before the Raptors called a timeout. Leonard missed the team's last game with a sore knee. Norman Powell also had 14 points, while Kawhi Leonard (11) and Pascal Siakam (10) also scored in double figures.

The Spaniard played his entire National Basketball Association career to date with the Grizzlies and is the franchise's all-time leader in points, blocks, and minutes played. Could the streak mercifully come to an end?

The Raptors are second in the Eastern Conference and are on a four-game winning streak.
