Girl's Letter to Steph Curry Changed How Under Armour Sells His Shoes

The Warriors have gone 5-5 in Curry's absence.

A pair of former Finals MVP's and future Hall of Famers delivered an epic on-court battle as two of the NBA's best teams and players hooked up for a potential NBA Finals preview on Thursday.

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 short-handed Warriors were also missing forwards Draymond Green (sprained right toe) and Alfonzo McKinnie (sore left foot), both of whom sat for the seventh straight game. But it stoked belief in the idea that the Raptors could make their first NBA Finals and stand in the way of the Dubs repeating as champs.

Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors received a curious letter from a young fan named Riley, just like his firstborn daughter, asking for the availability of his signature sneakers; the Under Armour Curry 5s, in women's sizes. But the Raptors clawed their way back and when Green drilled a three-pointer with 4:42 to play, it capped an 8-0 run that put Toronto back up by 10, prompting a deafening roar from the Scotiabank Arena crowd that included Toronto Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock, Drake, and UFC featherweight champion Max Holloway. An injury took Leonard out of that contest, allowing the Warriors to come back and steal a win before eventually sweeping the series. He had 13 points in the opening quarter to help the home team build a 38-25 lead.

But like last season's game between the Raptors and Warriors in Toronto, Kevin Durant was eager to ruin Drake's night.

Golden State is now 0-2 in overtime contests this season. "But plan to be 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.

Leonard went into the game a flawless 6-for-6 in the regular season and playoffs against Golden State since the 2014-15 season, averaging 20.1 points, 6.9 rebounds, 2.4 assists and 2.1 steals per game. Additionally, it's just the second time in his career he's tallied at least 50 points and 10 rebounds. As evidenced by their record when leading after one, the Raptors' starting unit has a big hand in dictating the direction in which games will go.

Thompson scored nine points in the second and Durant added eight as Golden State cut the deficit to single digits. Lowry got a steal on the next Golden State possession.
