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

The Golden State Warriors eight-game win streak over the Raptors ended on Thursday night before a bellowing Toronto crowd revelling in what could be a preview of the National Basketball Association finals. Draymond Green (right toe), Alfonzo McKinnie (left foot) and DeMarcus Cousins (left Achilles tendon) sat injured, too.

In one of his first real tests against a legitimate contender in a Raptors' uniform (albeit, a shorthanded one), Kawhi showed up at Scotiabank Arena in a big way and popped off for his best game of the young season - posting 37 points, eight boards, three assists while dropping 14-of-24 from the floor and 3-of-6 from downtown.

After seeing the letter, Curry took to the time to correct this error and sent Morrison a sweet message.

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.

Celtics 124, Pelicans 107 — Postgame wrap
In a league of super-teams, it's not a great sign when a player feels he has to do it all to keep his team competitive. Smart was the only member of Boston's starting five not to hit double digits in points, but his impact was elsewhere.

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

Toronto luminaries dotted the audience for the matchup between the National Basketball Association powerhouses, from Drake to Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock. Leonard scored 22 points in the first two quarters, a season high for any half. An injury took Leonard out of that contest, allowing the Warriors to come back and steal a win before eventually sweeping the series.

The Warriors game was the second in a tough stretch for the Raptors. Leonard had 13 points in the first nine minutes and blocked a Durant shot. A mesmerizing bit of back-and-forth passing between Kyle Lowry and Leonard befuddled the Warriors and ended in a bucket.

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.

The Raps led by 13 after the first quarter, and as much as 18 during the night. Golden State coach Steve Kerr leaped to his feet in need of a timeout to reset his Warriors just five minutes into the game. The Raptors raced out to an early 18-point lead, and for the most part maintained a double-digit advantage until Durant lit it up late in the third quarter. The Raptors made just 1-of-7 from beyond the arc in the second. Klay Thompson helped Golden State with 26.
