Right down the centre Masai Ujiri strikes a balance with Gasol acquisition

But he then hailed the Knicks support for cheering their team despite their 16-game losing record - in what could be a hint ahead of a move to NY.

Gasol was acquired from the Memphis Grizzlies in exchange for Jonas Valanciunas, Delon Wright, C.J Miles, and a 2024 second-round draft pick before Thursday's National Basketball Association trade deadline. They also tied the game three times early in the fourth quarter before Robinson's old-fashioned three-point play gave them an 86-85 lead - their first since a 38-36 advantage with 3:48 left in the second quarter.

Kyle Lowry scored 22 points and Serge Ibaka added 15 points and 13 rebounds for the Raptors.

NY closed to 91-90 on a 3-pointer from Kadeem Allen with 5 minutes left. Danny Green hit back-to-back 3s to extend the lead 97-90.

Green and Norman Powell each had 14 points for the Raptors, who have won their last three games, all on the road.

"They still come out and support the team even with a losing record, " said Leonard, whose uncle joined him in Toronto. "That's the only way I know how to play - dedicating yourself to the game, to the city, to the fans".
