Canada's Jamal Murray leads Denver to 106-103 win over Toronto Raptors

Denver Nuggets guard Gary Harris left Monday's game in Toronto with a hip injury and will not return, the Nuggets announced. Both teams scored very effectively in the opening minutes of the first as the Nuggets started the game offensively with a Juancho Hernangomez 3-pointer and followed that up by drilling seven of their first 13 shots. The only Raptors player Denver had a hard time guarding was Kawhi Leonard, who finished the night with a game-high 27 points.

In the end, the Nuggets won their sixth straight and interrupted Toronto's eight-game winning streak.

Elsewhere, new signing Alec Burks scored on a dunk with three seconds left as the Cleveland Cavaliers beat the Brooklyn Nets 99-97 and the Washington Wizards prevailed against the New York Knicks 110-107.

A three by C.J. Miles brought the sleepy Scotiabank Arena crowd to life, pulling Toronto to within a point with eight minutes to play.

The Raptors shot a frightful 2-for-12 from three-point range in the first quarter, but still managed to keep it close. The Nuggets closed the quarter with a 9-2 run to take a 27-24 advantage into the second.

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

With Jokic on his way to his second triple-double of the year, the Nuggets were able to maintain a fairly big lead for most of the third quarter before a quick spurt from Toronto cut the lead to 75-70 with 4:20 remaining in the period. Ibaka made two free throws, trimming the lead to one.

Leonard was called for a non-shooting foul, but Jokic threw up a shot anyway.

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

The Nuggets (16-7 and first in the Northwest Division) will be back in action on Wednesday night when they'll travel to Orlando for a match-up against the Magic.
