Jeremy Lin finalizing buyout with Hawks, to sign with Raptors

Jeremy Lin

The Raptors entered Monday 41-16 and second in the Eastern Conference behind only NBA-leading Milwaukee.

D'Angelo Russell had 28 points and 14 assists for 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. Jarrett Allen added 15 points and Shabazz Napier had 10.

The trade with the Memphis Grizzlies for Marc Gasol took away some of their depth (Delon Wright, C.J. Miles), and Raptors president Masai Ujiri quickly suggested the team would "attack" the buyout market after the trade deadline.

Dating even further back than that, in 2012 during his "Linsanity" run he recorded a double-double of 27 points and 11 assists before burying a game-winning 3-pointer to beat the Raptors. Harris made a career-high seven 3-pointers, connecting for all of his threes and 22 of his 24 points in the first half.

Toronto led 120-114 on a three by Lowry at 2:45 of the fourth but Crabbe replied with back-to-back three-pointers to tie it at 120 at 1:34. 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.

The veteran point guard's arrival in Toronto would boost the Raptors, who will be without guard Fred VanVleet for at least three weeks because of a partially torn ligament in his left thumb.
