Danny Green scored 14 points and sank three straight 3-pointers in the fourth for Toronto. The three-time All-Star was a stalwart of Memphis' "Grit and Grind" era that saw the club make seven straight playoff appearances, including the Western Conference final in the 2012-13 season. "You throw it to him and there is cutting going on, there is flow to the offense".

Gasol posted averages of 15.7 points, 8.6 rebounds, 4.7 assists, 1.2 blocks and 1.1 steals in 53 games for the Grizzlies this season.

NY has lost 29 of its last 31 games.

The Knicks took a 14-3 lead on Jordan's put-back dunk before the Raptors called a timeout.

Raptors F Kahwi Leonard returned to the lineup after missing Thursday's game at Atlanta due to a sore left knee. Norman Powell also had 14 points, while Kawhi Leonard (11) and Pascal Siakam (10) also scored in double figures.

The Raptors star stonewalled questions about free agency following Saturday's 104-99 victory over the Knicks at Madison Square Garden, refusing to discuss anything but the win.

And when pressed, Leonard added: "I want to focus on this season".

The Knicks have cap room for two max players this July. "Just talk to people, just see what I want to do", Leonard said, via the New York Daily News.

"They still come out and support the team even with a losing record, " said Leonard, whose uncle joined him in Toronto. "That's what you want from an organization that you're playing for".

Of course, coach Nurse must also be very pleased about the production "Big Spain" will bring to the team.
