The often outspoken owner of the Dallas Mavericks, Mark Cuban, didn’t shy away from taking a quick jab to reigning MVP Stephen Curry prior to the team’s game against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday.
The encounter will mark the third and last of the season after losing the first two by an average margin of 15 points. Cuban and head coach Rick Carlisle will count on Seth Curry to get his groove back this week after failing to score in double figures in four of the last five games.
“I don’t know what team his brother plays on. I haven’t paid much attention to the rest of his family,” said Cuban of Seth Curry, according to Dwain Price of the Fort Worth Star-Telegram.
This isn’t the first or the last time Cuban has played mind games with an opposing team’s superstar, as the likes of Russell Westbrook and James Harden have received their fair share of shots fired this season.
The Mavs ready up for a four-game home stand this week, starting with their toughest game to date against the surging Warriors. Every game this week will prove important to Dallas, sitting three games back from the Denver Nuggets for the last playoff spot in the West, with only 13 games left in the season.
