NBA Raptors edge Warriors 131-128 in overtime

Golden State Warriors forward Kevin Durant drives around Toronto Raptors forward Kawhi Leonard during the second half of a game in Toronto, on November 29, 2018.

With a little help from influencers on Twitter, Morrison's letter got into the hands of Curry. 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. 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. The Warriors were also missing Draymond Green (toe injury).

With Thursday night's win, the Raptors advanced to 14-1 on the season when leading after the first quarter, emphasizing the importance of starting games off strong.

Riley Morrison, a 9-year-old from Napa, loves the game of basketball and at the top of her list of role models is Stephen Curry.

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. Jonas Jerebko added a season-high 20 points, but it wound up not being enough as the Dubs lost their fifth straight road game.

Toronto luminaries dotted the audience for the matchup between the National Basketball Association powerhouses, from Drake to Maple Leafs coach Mike Babcock. The win snapped an eight-game losing streak against the Warriors and gave Toronto its first seven-game win streak of the season.

Ex-Trump chair Paul Manafort 'lied to special counsel Mueller'
A month later he pleaded guilty to two other criminal charges in a plea deal with Special Counsel Robert Mueller . The filing also said that Manafort disagrees with the finding that he lied to federal authorities.

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

The Warriors game was the second in a tough stretch for the Raptors.

The much-anticipated night - a rare nationally televised game in the USA, and the Warriors' only regular-season trip to Toronto - lived up to its promise.

Golden State is now 7-2 (.777) versus the Eastern Conference this season.

Five other Raptors scored in double digits, including Siakam, who had 26 points, and Lowry who had 10 points and 12 assists. But with Leonard in Toronto now, Golden State has reason to be concerned.
