The Toronto Raptors lost their third straight game Sunday afternoon in a 112-98 loss to the Denver Nuggets. The Raptors finished 1-3 on their four-game home stand, but surprisingly still lead the Division with their 6-10 record. With the win, the Nuggets move to 10-6 and have now won six in a row.

Here are some notes from the game:

  • Dwane Casey replaced Amir Johnson in the starting lineup with forward Tyler Hansbrough. Hansbrough had seven points and five rebounds in 34 minutes of action, while Johnson didn't respond well grabbing three rebounds and failing to score on his only shot attempt.
  • Rudy Gay led the Raptors with 23 points and nine rebounds. Jonas Valanciunas had a solid outing with 18 points and 11 assists. 
  • The Nuggets' bench outscored the Raptors' bench 72-16 for the game. The Nuggets had five reserves score nine or more points with Nate Robinson having a team-high 23 points. Timofey Mosgov added an impressive 16 points and 15 rebounds. 
  • Masai Ujiri didn't get the best of his former team Sunday afternoon but he was definitely keeping an eye on his former players. He obviously has a connection to Denver and we wouldn't be surprised if he tries to land a former player via trade.
     

NEXT GAME: Tuesday, December 3 @ Golden State Warriors. 10:30 pm. ET start.
