After a timeout, the Nuggets turned the ball over on a shot clock violation, giving possession to the Raptors with 4 seconds remaining. Lowry took the final shot, but missed a 3 at the buzzer. With Randy Foye (right leg) and Jusuf Nurkic (personal) also unavailable, the Nuggets had just 10 players.
BOSTON Twelve hours after the cross country flight that carried him from his native Tacoma, Wash., had landed, a heavy lidded Isaiah Thomas sat in front of a microphone to answer questions. After attending his 22 year old sister’s funeral Saturday, the one day he had off between the Celtics’ Game 6 win in Chicago and Game 1 of the Eastern Conference semifinals against the Washington Wizards.
