VIDEO: Seth Curry drains clutch transition three to tie game vs. Blazers
Seth Curry has ice in his veins. The Philadelphia 76ers starting guard came up clutch against his former team after draining a huge transition three to tie the game against the Portland Trailblazers. Curry’s big triple just capped off a crucial 5-0 run for the Sixers as they tried to steal a win against the Blazers. Although they ultimately fell short, it was through no fault of Seth.

Seth Curry has been a revelation in his first season in Philadelphia after being traded from the Dallas Mavericks for Josh Richardson. His arrival has been nothing but beneficial for Sixers head coach Doc Rivers who coincidentally is the father of Curry’s wife, Callie Rivers.
After missing seven games early in January due to testing positive of COVID-19, Curry pretty much picked up where he left off and has been shooting lights out from all over. The 30-year-old is on pace to be the first-ever member of the 50/50/100 club (via StatMuse). A feat, not even his older brother Stephen has accomplished.

Curry’s efficient shooting run has been one of the key reasons why the Sixers have dominated the East so far this season. The former Duke star has slowly made a name for himself as one of the most lethal shooters in the league and has climbed all the way from being an undrafted G-League alum to being one of the pivotal pieces of the surging Sixers unit.
