Stephen Curry responds to message from fan over no women’s shoe

I'm sorry, but a game without Stephen Curry, Draymond Green and DeMarcus Cousins means that we won't really learn much about how Toronto stacks up against Golden State. If Leonard can lead the Raptors to victory and have a hand in containing Durant on Thursday, it'll only fuel his MVP case moving forward. Playing shorthanded on the road against the owners of the NBA's best record, the Dubs dug themselves an early hole and clawed back throughout the final three periods of regulation, tying it on a clutch 3-pointer from Kevin Durant with nine seconds left in the fourth quarter.

Though the Warriors aren't in first place, their game against the Raptors tomorrow looks like a matchup of the best two teams in each conference. The Raptors shot 72.7 per cent from the field in the first.

Morrison was in search of a new pair of sneakers to kick off her basketball season, and was disappointed that her shoe of choice - Steph Curry's signature Curry 5s - weren't available in girl's sizes.

She talked to Teen Vogue about why she wrote the letter, and said that it wasn't just about her getting to wear the sneakers - she wanted all girls to have the same chance that boys do.

It was the first time Durant and Leonard met in a regular-season game since the 2016-17 season opener.

While Golden State is an extremely hard team to maintain a big lead against, it is becoming a concerning trend for Toronto to let teams back in, as Detroit, Orlando and Miami have all chipped away at big deficits to make things interesting down the stretch.

Toronto luminaries dotted the audience for the matchup between the National Basketball Association powerhouses, from Drake to Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock.

"I asked my dad to buy me the new Curry 5's because I'm starting a new basketball season", Morrison wrote. The Spurs lost that game and Leonard for the series, and were eventually swept, causing many to wonder what might have been.

Toronto scored an opponent-high 38 first quarter points. More to come on that, but plan on being in Oakland that night!

The take over began in the third quarter, where Durant scored 18 points on 7-for-9 shooting, pulling up from the Raptors half-court logo to close the quarter. The Raptors made just 1-of-7 from beyond the arc in the second.

Leonard, and Danny Green shared lots of insights with the Raps from their experiences in San Antonio taking on the Warriors. Lowry got a steal on the next Golden State possession.
