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

Nuggets Jamal Murray Nikola Jokic

Harris is averaging 17.3 points, 3.4 rebounds and 3.0 assists this season for the first-place Nuggets. "There's nothing that he can't do except jump", Murray said with a laugh.

In a highly anticipated matchup between two first-place teams, neither the Nuggets or Raptors disappointed from the opening tip.

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

Denver was definitely the better team on the night, particularly in the first half in which the Raptors were a woeful combined 3-for-22 from three-point range. The Raptors would battle back though with eight-straight points of their own to take a 35-33 lead with 7:18 left before half.

Murray, from Kitchener, Ont., had 21 points to help lead the Nuggets to a 106-103 victory over Toronto, and Denver's sixth consecutive win.

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.

The Raptors shot just 27 per cent form the three-point line, were outscored 23-2 on second-chance points, and were outrebounded 15-7 on the offensive glass.

"It's amusing, I was looking at his stats the last five games, we won five in a row, he was averaging 12 points, eight rebounds, eight assists, but his field goal percentage, three-point percentage are not what we expect from Nikola". As long as the Nuggets could find a way to stop Leonard in the final quarter, they had a pretty good shot of walking out of Toronto with the win.

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. Leonard's 17-foot pullup jumper put Toronto ahead by one with 55 seconds left.

Blake Griffin led Detroit with 20 points.
