The Raptors were looking for their ninth consecutive win, but hosted a Denver team that has been working its way up the Western Conference standings.
Harris was replaced in the lineup by Malik Beasley, who finished the game with 15 points. The Raptors couldn't buy a three-point basket in the early going, shooting a combined 3-for-22 in the first half. "He's frustrated, just coming back from injury, not being able to come back tonight, he's a big loss". He shot 1-for-7, missing 5 of 6 from 3-point range.
Denver's recipe for success remained the same: get the ball to Jokic and let him do his thing. Torrey Craig's three late in the quarter gave the Nuggets a double-digit lead, then Murray had a running dunk off a Craig steal to send Denver into halftime with a 59-47 lead.
The Raptors shot a disgusting 2-for-12 from three-point range in the first quarter, but still managed to keep it close. "There's nothing that he can't do except jump", Murray said with a laugh. Leonard scored a game-high 27 points and had eight rebounds for the Raptors. Beginning of the game, end of the game, they made some tough ones. The Nuggets led 104-103 when Jokic caught an inbound pass from forward Paul Millsap in the final seconds.
Toronto still maintained the momentum though and tied the game at 94 with 4:40 remaining. Hernangomez would go one of two from the line as the game was now in the hands of the Nuggets defense. Leonard tied the game on a fadeaway jumper with seven seconds left. Ibaka made two free throws, trimming the lead to one. Jokic would do just that and Kyle Lowry would miss a three at the buzzer to give the Nuggets a big 106-103 victory over Toronto. Murray logged a whopping 41 minutes, scoring 21 points, dishing out eight assists, and grabbing seven rebounds.
