[DENVER] — The Denver Nuggets played host to the Toronto Raptors last night and Nuggs fans will wish that they could have another crack at this one. The narrow 102-105 defeat was and still is a tough one to swallow. The loss bumps Denver's record down to 1-2 on the season, while the victory gives Toronto a 2-1 total on the year. It's not overly surprising that the Nuggets would end up losing this one consider they did little to establish themselves as dangerous threats. Perhaps the showing can serve as an essential building block for the team in the days to come.

On this night it was Jusuf Nurkic leading the show from a statistical perspective. His 13 points, 18 rebounds, 1 assists, 5 blocks and 1 steals in 38 minutes topped all players in terms of general production. Most importantly, the Raptors managed to prevail where it mattered most and will happily add another victory to their season total. So long as Nurkic keeps producing at this rate and Toronto keeps winning ball games, everybody - from fantasy owners to the team coaching and executive staff - will be more than satisfied.

Though Denver didn't end up getting it done when it mattered most, Kyle Lowry did walk away with the small consolation of an attractive 29 points, 5 rebounds and 7 assists. Whether another bright individual performance can help them get the result they want on the scoreboard next time, however, remains to be seen.

Individual performances aside, if there's one area where the Nuggets can improve, it's on the defensive side of the ball. Though Denver wasn't terrible in the ball game, there's no denying that a stricter focus on limiting their opponents could serve them well the next time they collide with a worthy foe.

The loss hurts for the homeside but they'll get their opportunity to regain ground in a pending matchup with the . The Raptors, meanwhile, will set their sights on a run-in with the .
