Raptors 127, Nets 125: Leonard's Game-Winner Denies Brooklyn in Toronto

Report: Lin to join Raptors after Hawks' buyout Report: Jeremy Lin finalizing a buyout with Atlanta Hawks, to sign with Toronto Raptors
Cassandra Castillo | 13 February, 2019, 14:02

D'Angelo Russell opened the 13-3 run with three free throws and a basket. Joe Harris scored 24 points and made a career-best seven three-pointers, but the Nets lost for the fifth time in six games.

Toronto led 120-114 on a three by Lowry at 2:45 of the fourth but Crabbe replied with back-to-back three-pointers to tie it at 120 at 1:34.

Gasol received a standing ovation when he checked in for Ibaka at 3:03 of the first.

With Kyle Lowry dealing with a lingering back issue, and Fred VanVleet (left thumb soreness) now a little banged up himself, Lin may find a solid immediate role off the bench for the Raptors.

He suffered the injury in the second quarter of Saturday's win in NY.

Now a grizzled and well-traveled veteran at 30 years old, Lin is set to be headed to the Toronto Raptors once the Atlanta Hawks officially buy him out.

In Toronto, he is expected to add depth behind Kyle Lowry and Fred VanVleet as the Raptors pursue the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference, now a game behind Milwaukee.

Lin has averaged 11.8 points in 457 career games.

The Nets put up 60 first-half points on the strength of Harris' early shooting to take a four-point halftime lead.

In the third quarter, Russell attacked the rim for 14 points in the period, locking up his double-double before even getting to the fourth quarter. F DeMarre Carroll (left knee) was not available. Musician Sting attended the game.
