9-Year-Old Writes Steph Curry Over Girls Sneakers, Curry Replies

Steph Curry responds to 9-year-old's letter about offering his shoes in sizes for girls

The Raptors will get another chance at Golden State soon - the Warriors host Toronto on December 12. 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. Sure, it could show us what we already know about the Raptors - that they're a real title contender - or on the flip side, what we already know about the Warriors without Curry-Green-Cousins - that KD and Klay can score like insane, so much so that they can beat even the best National Basketball Association teams in one game just by running up the numbers. Draymond Green (right toe), Alfonzo McKinnie (left foot) and DeMarcus Cousins (left Achilles tendon) sat injured, too.

With Leonard getting any shot he wanted off isolations while also tormenting Golden State on defense in a way only he can, the Raptors built a lead as large as 18.

While Curry 5 basketball shoes aren't offered in girls' sizes, nine-year-old Riley Morrison didn't let that stop her from securing a pair.

Toronto luminaries dotted the audience for the matchup between the National Basketball Association powerhouses, from Drake to Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock. An injury took Leonard out of that contest, allowing the Warriors to come back and steal a win before eventually sweeping the series.

Adding to the intrigue is Kevin Durant has been on fire for the Warriors lately with an average of 41.7 points in his last three games, including a 49-point showing against the Orlando Magic in his last outing.

Sure, Kevin Durant scored 51 points, but when Leonard was guarding him, he had to work for each bucket.

Leonard, and Danny Green shared lots of insights with the Raps from their experiences in San Antonio taking on the Warriors.

"More to come on that, but plan to be in Oakland on that night!"

Durant capped an 18-point third quarter with a 32-foot pull-up three, the final basket in a personal 13-point streak.

Golden State is now 7-2 (.777) versus the Eastern Conference this season. Additionally, it's just the second time in his career he's tallied at least 50 points and 10 rebounds. Lowry got a steal on the next Golden State possession.

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.
