Beasley's 3-pointer from the corner gave Denver a 3-point lead. But fouls by Ibaka and Leonard proved costly, as Jokic had three free throws to clinch the win for Denver.
Out of the first media timeout, Toronto forced three-straight Nuggets turnovers in route to a 6-0 run to give them a 20-16 lead with just under four minutes remaining in the first. The only Raptors player Denver had a hard time guarding was Kawhi Leonard, who finished the night with a game-high 27 points. Leonard tied the game on a fadeaway jumper with seven seconds left. But the final three free throws, and a Lowry three-point shot that clanged off the rim at the buzzer, instantly sucked the energy out of the building.
