Steve Curry scored the last three points of Warriors Win 116-96 against Philadelphia 76ers with 1:27 remaining in the game. The outcome was out of reach for the Sixers, but the Warriors star didn’t realize what his sixth index of the night meant.
Even then, his younger brother and 76 of Seth Curry’s guards had outstripped him by exactly two points.
“I didn’t, he reminded me after the match,” Steve told reporters when asked if he knew how many points he and Seth had before that last shot. “I didn’t know the stakes were so high in that shot.”
Steph finished the 25 point high game. Seth was the game’s second-highest scorer with 24 points, the second-highest night he’s scored this season.
While he is of course pleased with the Warriors’ improvement to NBA Player of the Year 16-2 with their 76th win, Steve couldn’t help but praise his younger brother.
Steve said: “This guy plays incredible basketball, and it’s fun to watch. He’s just kept improving. He’s going at his own pace, he’s in control. … It’s impressive, the way he plays, the way he’s taken his own identity in this.” League as a scorer and playmaker.
“Proud, proud brother.”
After the match, Steve posted a photo of himself and Seth Warriors guard Damion Lee – who is married to Steve and Seth’s sister Seidel – with the caption “Family stuff! Happy Thanksgiving.”
With the elder Curry continuing to play like he’s chasing his third award as MVP, Seth is enjoying the best year of his eight-year career by achieving a career-high average of 15.9 points per game. His next chance to get revenge on his older brother comes on December 11th when the Warriors play in Philadelphia.
