Report: Toronto Raptors to sign veteran point guard Jeremy Lin

Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard (2) reacts after sinking the game winning basket against Brooklyn Nets in the second half at Scotiabank Arena.

Leonard scored 30 points, Serge Ibaka had 18 points and12 rebounds and Pascal Siakam scored 17 for the Raptors, who have won eight straight home meetings with the Nets.

Raptors: This was the first of six consecutive home games for the Raptors, who don't play on the road against until March 3 (Mar. 4, PHL time) at Detroit.

D'Angelo Russell scored 28 points and had a career-high 15 assists for Brooklyn. Joe Harris added 24 points, Allen Crabbe had 22, Jarrett Allen 15 and Shabazz Napier 10. Gasol, who spent his first 10 1/2 seasons of his National Basketball Association career with the Memphis Grizzlies before being traded to Toronto last week, learned that lesson before the Raptors played the Nets.

Harris made 5-of-6 from three-point range in the first quarter and Brooklyn led 29-21 after one. Ibaka's hook shot to bumped the lead to four.

OG Anunoby's steal and layup in the final second of the third quarter tied the game at 92.

Hours after the initial report of the pending move, the Raptors announced point guard Fred VanVleet will miss at least three weeks with a thumb injury.
