The Denver Post - - SPORTS - By Ben­jamin Arthur

The Nuggets re­mained win­less in sum­mer league play in Las Ve­gas, los­ing 8281 to the Toronto Rap­tors on Mon­day night.

Nuggets shoot­ing guard Ma­lik Beasley led all scor­ers with 19 points. He has led the Nuggets in scor­ing in each of their three sum­mer league losses.

Toronto held an 82-79 lead with 14.5 sec­onds left in the game when Nuggets for­ward Juan­cho Her­nan­gomez was fouled on a 3point at­tempt. He missed the first free throw but made the next two to bring Den­ver to within one point.

The Rap­tors’ Pas­cal Si­akam turned the ball over and Beasley had the ball with an op­por­tu­nity to win the game. But he also turned the ball over, with 2.9 sec­onds left.

The Rap­tors, who im­proved to 3-0, were led by Jakob Poeltl’s 17 points and eight re­bounds.
