Instead, Nikola Jokic had three free throws in the dying seconds and Toronto's eight-game winning streak came to an end at the hands of Jokic, Canadian Jamal Murray, and the Denver Nuggets.

Harris is averaging 16.6 points, 3.2 rebounds and 2.9 assists in 21 games this season. "There's nothing that he can't do except jump", Murray said with a laugh.

"(Jokic) does everything. He passes, rebounds, handles the ball. "There's nothing he really can't do, except jump".

"When you can find ways to win games when your best player is struggling a little bit I'm happy about that". "He just seemed to handle it. We worked hard on him, we tried to put him under some duress with the ball but it just didn't faze him".

Kawhi Leonard scored 27 points, Serge Ibaka had 15 and Pascal Siakam added 14 for the Raptors, which shot 11 for 41 from downtown.

Harris scored three points in nine minutes before exiting late in the first quarter with the injury.

In a highly anticipated matchup between two first-place teams, neither the Nuggets or Raptors disappointed from the opening tip. Harris is expected to undergo an MRI on Tuesday. "He did a lot for us tonight, he hit some big clutch free throws, we got it done tonight".

Lowry returned after sitting out Saturday's loss at Cleveland because of an unspecified back injury, the first game he'd missed this season. A few of those assists went to Hernangomez, who finished as the Nuggets leading scorer after the first with seven points on 3-of-7 shooting from the field.

Moments after the game, Lowry had already left the locker-room while Leonard headed to the upstairs gym to work out. Leonard was also unavailable because he was working out. 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.
