Seth Curry on playing Stephen Curry, Warriors in Western Conference Finals with Blazers

Warriors, Blazers, Stephen Curry, Seth Curry

Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry is happy with how his comeback season treated him with a bevy of fond memories upon signing with the Portland Trail Blazers The sharpshooter recalled a great shooting season, the 3-Point Contest and reaching the Western Conference Finals to match up against his brother in a high-stakes four-game tilt:

“I think this last playoff run we had in Portland is it NBA-wise,” Seth told Micah Wimmer of FanSided. “I had a great year last year shooting the ball and being able to play in the Three-point Contest in Charlotte against my brother with my dad there in attendance was a lot of fun. That was probably one of the highlights of the season, but being able to get to the Western Conference Finals and play against the Warriors was a special moment for me and my family.”

The Curry family flipped a coin to see who would end up supporting which son. Dell wound up with Stephen’s jersey while Sonya drew Seth. However, their intent to give each of their sons one loyal supporter soon backfired in the joy of a basketball game, as Stephen caught his mother rooting for him, even when she had his brother’s jersey on:

“It was a surreal moment,” said Seth. “You grow up playing against each other in the driveway and then being able to do it on the biggest stage possible, in the Western Conference Finals, was a lot of fun. I want to get another taste of that next year.”

Besides those memories, Seth noted there was no awkwardness between him and his brother, despite having played an awful lot of AAU ball together growing up:

“There’s no awkwardness. We played together enough in the past to get that out of the way. At that point, with those high stakes, it’s all about doing whatever it takes to win the game, to get to the next round. That’s what it was all about.”

Curry returns to the Mavs this season, and he’s hoping to help them return to glory as they battle the Warriors and a loaded Western Conference.
