With a little help from influencers on Twitter, Morrison's letter got into the hands of Curry.

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.

The first of two meetings between the National Basketball Association heavyweights didn't disappoint in the slightest, with the Warriors and Raptors exchanging blows and showcasing deep rosters and top-flight talent for 48-minutes plus overtime as the Raptors took a thriller 131-128.

Nine-year-old Californian Riley Morrison wrote a letter to the Golden State Warriors star to ask why his signature shoe, the Curry 5, wasn't available in "girls" sizes on the UA website, SB Nation reported.

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. 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.

Liverpool’s Champions League campaign under threat after defeat to PSG
Liverpool rallied after James Milner's penalty got them back in the contest, but an equaliser eluded them in the second half. It was not even a foul for him, unbelievable. "It's another massive game and we can bounce back straight away".

Still, White House officials have long expressed unease about Hyde Smith and worry that she wasn't ready for prime time. The signs include references to Hyde-Smith's comments on the campaign trial about attending a "public hanging".

LeBron James' LA Lakers lose 108-104 to Orlando Magic
That defensive focus was evident early in the Sunday game as the Lakers held Orlando to 19 points in the first quarter. James excelled in most facets of the game this week but is having trouble with turnovers and free throws.

It was the first time Durant and Leonard met in a regular-season game since the 2016-17 season opener. An injury took Leonard out of that contest, allowing the Warriors to come back and steal a win before eventually sweeping the series.

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

While Golden State shot just under 58 percent from deep in the first quarter, Toronto separated itself with its 3-point shooting - the Warriors failed to connect on a 3-pointer in the first quarter. So he sat on Golden State's bench in a suit in Toronto, the city where he had played some youth basketball while his father Dell had been a Raptor. He told Riley to plan on being in Oakland that night. That included a cold-blooded 32-foot three-point dagger to close the quarter that flipped a comfy Raps lead into an uneasy eight-point one. The Raptors made just 1-of-7 from beyond the arc in the second.

Klay Thompson added 23 points and has now scored 20-or-more points in 13 of the last 14 contests.
