Raptors vs. Nuggets final score: Denver holds on for win, 113-110

Chris Humphreys-USA TODAY Sports

The Nuggets evened their record by outlasting Toronto at home.

The Denver Nuggets held a comfortable lead for most of the night, then staved off a rally from the Toronto Raptors to win, 113-110, on Monday night in Denver.

Kenneth Faried, who scored 18 for the Nuggets, threw down a dunk with 6:07 remaining to give Denver a 103-86 lead. Toronto's Kyle Lowry then scored 10 of his 24 points in the final six minutes, leading the Raptors on an 18-2 run to make it 105-104 with 2:17 left.

After Ty Lawson made a three for a 108-104 lead, the Nuggets would make enough free throws down the stretch to hang on to the victory.

Denver benefited from a balanced attack to claim the win: In addition to Faried's 18 points, five other Nuggets were in double figures. Corey Brewer led with 19 points, JaVale McGee added 17, and Ty Lawson pitched in 16 to help Denver move to 9-9 on the season.

Both teams are back in action Wednesday on the road. Denver visits the Atlanta Hawks, while Toronto is up against the Sacramento Kings.
