Boston will sit Gordon Hayward, Toronto announced Kawhi Leonard will not play, and after leading Minnesota to a win over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night, Jimmy Butler got the day off. The team lost to the Boston Celtics, 103-101 at home, and rookie power forward Kevin Knox for the foreseeable future.
He had then given the Celtics another three-point lead with two free throws with 7.9 seconds left and the Knicks called their final timeout. He pulled up for a 3-pointer from well beyond the arc and Tatum jumped to contest it, fouling Burke for three free throws that could have tied it. That put Toronto back ahead 109-101 with 3 minutes remaining. He intentionally missed on the third in an attempt to help one of his teammates execute a game-tying putback, but the ball ended up in the hands of Celtics big man Al Horford as time expired. Enes Kanter had 17 points and 15 rebounds before fouling out of their second two-point loss in two nights.
That's how it looked a few months back, too, when Beal fouled out of a pivotal playoff game that would have seen the Raptors take a 3-1 series lead.
Condo owners vote to strip Trump Place sign from UWS building
Last week, approximately 70 percent of owners voted to remove the sign - costing approximately $1,150 per letter. Trump co-developed the condo building and five others at Trump Place two decades ago.
The Celtics confirmed it was a sore right hamstring.
Because the No. 9 pick wasn't able to shoot the free throws, he was, by rule, forced to miss the remainder of the game. While X-Rays on Knox's ankle came back negative, the 19-year-old is expected to miss two-to-four weeks, according to Shams Charania of The Athletic. Opening the season with three games in four nights, including Friday night's heavyweight bout with the Boston Celtics, it would've been nearly expected for the Raptors to have a let-down game in Washington, especially with Delon Wright still not back from his preseason thigh injury and Kawhi Leonard given the night off for rest.
Baynes left the game midway through the second quarter, requesting to be substituted as he limped to the locker room, where he was assessed by the Celtics trainers.
