Jokic, Nuggets edge Raptors to end Toronto’s eight-game win streak

Nuggets' Gary Harris exits vs. Raptors with hip injury

The Toronto Raptors' eight-game winning streak came to an end at the hands of Canadian Jamal Murray and the Denver Nuggets on Monday.

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.

Toronto still maintained the momentum though and tied the game at 94 with 4:40 remaining. Juancho Hernangomez missed one of two free throws with 12 seconds left to give Toronto one last gasp, and Leonard scored with seven seconds left to tie the game.

Toronto's awful three-point shooting continued in the second - Miles connected on the only one of 10 that fell for the Raptors.

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. Leonard's 17-foot pullup jumper put Toronto ahead by one with 55 seconds left. The Raptors couldn't buy a three-point basket in the early going, shooting a combined 3-for-22 in the first half. The play from Jokic was key in the Nuggets taking a 59-47 lead into the halftime locker room as Denver outscored Toronto 32-23 in the second quarter.

Clawing their way back from a 12-point deficit, a fadeaway shot by Leonard tied the game with 7.1 seconds on the clock.

Julius Randle had 37 points, but the New Orleans Pelicans fell to the Los Angeles Clippers 129-126, with Tobias Harris sinking two free throws at the death to secure the win. As part of his second triple-double performance of this season, Jokic racked up 23 points (8-of-13 from the field and 7-of-8 from the charity stripe), 15 assists, 11 rebounds, and two steals in 36 minutes of action.
