Seth Curry believes he’s in his prime, wants to help Mavs make the playoffs
The Dallas Mavericks are one of the most interesting teams heading into the 2019-20 NBA season. With the tandem of Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis, they are looking to make the playoffs once again. However, those two aren’t the only ones who are expected to step up and play a key role in the Mavs’ quest to return to relevance.
Seth Curry, who signed with the Mavs in the offseason, is looking to help the team notch a playoff spot in the dreaded Western Conference. In an interview with Micah Wimmer of Fan Sided, the veteran guard said he’s in peak form and ready to contribute to the team’s success next season.
“Right now, coming in and taking on a bigger role than I had last year,” Curry said on his goal with the team in the upcoming season.
“Looking forward to going in and helping those guys get to the playoffs — whether I start or come off the bench, whatever the case may be. I’m looking to expand my role every year. I’m in my prime right now so it’s just a matter of being familiar with the situation, playing well and making a run in the playoffs.”
Last season, Curry played for the Portland Trail Blazers and put up averages of 7.9 points and 1.6 rebounds in 18.9 minutes per game. He also shot the ball at an impressive 45.0 percent from beyond the arc.
Seth Curry is already a solid player at the moment, but if he can improve on his production moving forward, he will definitely be one of the Mavs’ most important players. Not only can he be their primary spot-up shooter, but he can also provide solid minutes as a backup to Doncic at the point guard spot.
