National Basketball Association wrap: Raptors beat Nuggets, 105-102

He's also the first to start a season with three straight 30-point without a 3-pointer since Kobe Bryant did it for the Lakers in 2005. But if he can, then he just might make the second-biggest deal in National Basketball Association history look like a bargain.

Barton went down with 30 seconds remaining in the third quarter after twisting his left ankle stepping on the foot of Toronto rookie Jakob Poeltl. BUZZER BEATERS1. Nuggets G Gary Harris (groin) sat out the first two games and is questionable for Monday. 2. Coming off screens a season ago, he generated 1.02 points per possession on 2.3 possessions per game, and in 3.3 possessions per game where he was used as a spot-up shooter, he generated 1.13 points per possession.

Best deal for the team may be the Bucks getting Antetokounmpo for a little less than the max - but to do that they did not give him (or get him to take) a fifth year.

The Bulls are 3-0 and play in Boston next. Look for Denver to feed him the ball on the low block, and don't be surprised if he dominates the glass in this game as well. I'm very proud of our effort.

Trump takes a break
Eleanor Holmes Norton wielded golden shovels and posted for photos with the magnate, Ivanka and two of his sons, Don Jr. and Eric. Trump had met with GOP lawmakers that day, perhaps in an effort to build a relationship with the Republican Party.

Lowry has played 77 minutes in two games and should combine volume with efficiency at an elite level tonight. "As long as we go out there and win, that's all I care about". The Raptors had the advantage from the 4:12 mark of the first quarter, leading by 19 at one point. "I don't get caught up in what nobody says". The Nuggets can relate to missed shots after Wilson Chandler had a chance to put the team ahead at the free-throw line in the closing seconds of the fourth quarter on Saturday only to miss a pair, sending the game into overtime and an eventual 115-113 home loss to the Portland Trail Blazers.

"I think it's a great opportunity for us to learn how we need to play four quarters", said center Jusuf Nurik, who finished with 13 points and 18 rebounds. But even in the good games, when he's been active and engaged and working hard on both ends of the floor, his scoring touch has been missing so far. John Wall is averaging 17 points and 11.5 assists while Markieff Morris is averaging 16.5 points and 5.5 rebounds. Fellow All-Star Kyle Lowry complemented DeRozan as he often does with 29 points on 10-of-20 shooting, and the point guard added seven assists to his ledger as well. The Wizards will try to get Brooks his first victory when they host the Toronto Raptors in the home opener on Wednesday. In the same game, Denver Nuggets big man Nikola Jokic wore the most eye-catching Nike Hyperdunk 2016, a two-tone blue and yellow PE model.

That was not the case, at least early on where the quicker Raptors were able to expose Denver in the interior and jumped to a 33-24 lead in the first quarter. Barton needed crutches to get around afterward but is taking a wait-and-see approach to his availability for Thursday's game at Minnesota.

The Raptors played another hard-fought game against a gritty opponent.
