Toronto closed the regular season with a win over Denver

With the absence of four of their five most influential players, the Canadians added one more victory before the playoffs.

Toronto raptors beat 117-109 to Denver nuggets at the close of the regular season of the NBA. With the second place in the East assured and with a defined rival, the defenders of the title gave rest to their stars Kyle lowry, Paskal Siakam, Serge Ibaka and Fred van vleet.

After an even start to the game, and with a Jamal Murray on fire with 11 points and 3-3 in triples, the Canadians took distance thanks to Terrence Davis, from the great first half, with all of his 14 points and a partial of 8- 2 with five of his goals to close 29-23. The second quarter kept the parity and because of that, Toronto went to rest 58-50.

Then the show of the unexpected Stanley Johnson and rookie Paul Watson began, the forwards stormed the scoreboards to stay on top due to the strong defense of the Raptors. Johnson was the top scorer of the night with 23 points and Watson contributed 22 with a good 4-6 on three-point shots. For the Nuggets, who did not give their figures many minutes, PJ Dozier scored 20 points.

The champions closed the regular season with triumph and with their starters rested for the first round of the playoffs in which they will face the Brooklyn Nets. While Denver, who finished third in the Western Conference, will face the Utah Jazz in their first playoff game.
