Stephen Curry, Seth Curry trade punches in Sixers-Warriors game

76ers, Warriors, Seth Curry, Stephen Curry

The Golden State Warriors took on the Philadelphia 76ers on Monday night, which meant it was a battle between those two sweet-shooting brothers: Stephen Curry of Golden State and Seth Curry of Philadelphia.

Before the game even began, the brothers dapped each other up in a display of sportsmanship and brotherly love:

Then, Seth began to give his older brother the business. First, he pulled up in the lane for an easy two-point jumper, then, more impressively, he drained a triple with his brother draped all over him in defense:

Of course, seeing as Steph Curry is the best three-point shooter in NBA history, it didn’t take long for him to respond to his younger sibling’s exploits. He buried a contested deep triple to end the first quarter to tie the game at 24 – at the expense of Seth:

Both Curry brothers are having excellent seasons, though Steph is somehow approaching his back-to-back MVP seasons in terms of production. Stephen recently erupted in multiple games in a row, and he was just named the Western Conference Player of the Week by averaging a preposterous 43.8 points, 5.8 rebounds, and 5.0 assists in four games last week. During that stretch, he made a staggering 36 three-pointers.

Seth, on the other hand, is a major part of the 76ers’ roster as a deadeye shooter who helps to open up the rest of the offense around MVP candidate Joel Embiid. Curry is averaging a career-high 89.4 percent from the free-throw line and is putting up 12.0 points per game, 2.8 assists per game (a career-high), and 2.1 rebounds per game.
