Steph Curry's incredible response to nine-year-old girl's letter

A night billed as a potential National Basketball Association finals preview certainly lived up to its billing Thursday.
Kerr ruled Curry out of the two-time defending champions' marquee matchup against the league-leading Raptors in Toronto on Thursday, despite the fact that Curry himself is "dying to play".
Leonard led the way with a season-high 37 points for Toronto, while Durant had a jaw-dropping 51 for Golden State. The last time Golden State dropped five-straight on the road was during the 2012-2013 season. The matchup prompted Thompson to suggest the night was a potential preview of June's National Basketball Association finals. "More to come on that, but plan to be in Oakland that night!"
But like last season's game between the Raptors and Warriors in Toronto, Kevin Durant was eager to ruin Drake's night.
The contest was slipping from the Raptors and Durant seemed set to do what he did Monday against the Magic and bring the Warriors from out of a hole and into the winner's circle.
Thompson capped a 9-0 Warriors run that pulled the visitors to within two points with eight minutes to play.
The 2014 Finals MVP did not back down from any of the challenges presented by Kevin Durant, attacking on offence and making things as hard as he could on the defensive end. His club erased an 11-point fourth quarter deficit and with time winding down, Durant sent the game to overtime with a corner three that left Scotiabank Arena silent.
The night had a post-season buzz, and the fans stood for the extra period, erupting when Green knocked down a three with 2:07 to play to put Toronto up by three.
Nick Nurse certainly was dressed for the occasion.
It was the marquee National Basketball Association game of the night, with the TNT crew of Chris Webber and Marv Albert broadcasting courtside, and all sportscasters wore flamboyant suit jackets to honour the late sideline reporter Craig Sager.
Durant finished the night with 51 points on 18-for-31 shooting from the field and 4-for-7 shooting from 3-point range, including two extremely hard 3-pointers at the end of regulation to send the game into overtime.
Curry, meanwhile, sat out with strained adductor (groin). "Hopefully Draymond (Green) won't be too far behind him".
Toronto came out the gate firing on all cylinders, shooting 16-for-22 (72.7 percent) from the field and 6-for-10 from deep to end the first quarter with a 38-25 lead over Golden State. Siakam was fouled and made one, with Leonard grabbing the rebound on the missed second shot. 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.
Morrison's letter and Curry's heartfelt response quickly went viral, with many Twitter users applauding Curry's honest response.
