Serge Ibaka scored the winning basket with 17 seconds remaining and the Toronto Raptors won their sixth straight home game, 104-101 over the Atlanta Hawks on Tuesday night.

Kawhi Leonard scored 31 points, Pascal Siakam had 13 points and 10 rebounds, and Kyle Lowry scored 16 points as the Raptors earned their sixth consecutive win over the Hawks.

OG Anunoby scored 14 points and Ibaka had 13.

John Collins had 21 points and 14 rebounds, Jeremy Lin scored 20 points and Trae Young added 19 for the Hawks, who have lost four of five.

Neither team led by more than five points in a tight fourth quarter. Atlanta’s Dewayne Dedmon made a pair of foul shots at 2:15 to put the Hawks up 101-98, but Toronto finished the game with a 6-0 run.

Anonuboy’s layup with 1:57 remaining cut the gap to one and, after a steal by Leonard, Ibaka’s dunk with 17 seconds to go put Toronto up 102-101.

Following a timeout, Young drove and but missed his shot. Ibaka grabbed the rebound that led to a fast break dunk for Anunoby with less than a second to go.

Former Raptors star Vince Carter launched a long 3-point try that fell short at the buzzer.

Lowry and Leonard played together for the first time since Dec. 9, a home loss to Milwaukee. Toronto has not lost at home since.

Leonard scored at least 20 points for the 17th consecutive game, extending his career-best streak.

The banged-up Hawks were without guard Kevin Huerter (back). Guard Kent Bazemore missed his fifth straight game because of a sprained right ankle, while center Miles Plumlee sat for the third straight game because of a sore left ankle. Forward Taurean Prince has not played since Dec. 3 because of a sprained left ankle.

A former slam dunk champion whose career began in Toronto, Carter received a brief standing ovation when he checked in for the first time at 5:13 of the first quarter. He scored six points in 13 minutes.

Making his first start of the season in place of Huerter, Lin made all four of his shots and scored 10 points in the first as Atlanta led 31-28 after one.

After shooting 0 for 6 from 3-point range in the first, the Raptors shot 6 for 10 from long range in the second. Atlanta led 57-56 at halftime.

Leonard and Lowry each scored eight points in the third and Toronto took an 80-77 lead into the fourth.
