The Golden State Warriors took on the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday in a marquee matchup between two sides with championship aspirations. It was also an opportunity for Stephen Curry to face off against his young brother, Seth Curry, who currently plies his trade with the Sixers.

Steph had nothing but praise for Seth as he talked up his younger brother’s recent surge with the Sixers. Steph also came to an admission that at this point, he could not be more proud of what Seth has achieved in his career:

“That dude is playing incredible basketball,” Steph said, via Keith Pompey of the SunHerald. “He’s fun to watch. He’s continuing to get better. He goes at his own pace. He’s so under control.

“So I’m a proud, proud brother.”

Seth is currently on his second season with the Sixers and he’s been playing some of the best basketball of his career this term. In 17 starts, Seth is averaging a career-best 15.9 points on 50.3 percent shooting, 3.1 rebounds, and 2.5 assists, while also connecting on 2.2 triples per game on a 41.1-percent clip.

On Wednesday, Seth exploded for a team-high 24 points against his brother and the rest of the Warriors. After the game, Steph revealed the secret behind Seth’s heroics for the Sixers:

“I told him he had fresh legs, because he missed last game,” Steph said. “Two days off does wonders for guys in the league. He looked very spry out there with his moves and his fresh legs. He was just giving us the business.”

In the end, however, Steph and the Dubs proved too much for Philly. The Warriors emerged with a 116-96 win as they improved to a league-best 16-2 record. Nevertheless, it was an undeniably memorable encounter for the Curry brothers.

For his part, Seth also opened up about what it means to him to play against his big brother at the biggest stage of them all:

“Growing up around the NBA with my father,m going to games, we used to go out there and take shots as kids on an NBA floor and pretend that we are in the league,” Seth said. “This is probably double digits the numbers of times we played against each other now, but it’s still special. You don’t want to take it for granted.

“Like I said, it’s a dream come true and you try to appreciate every moment, because you don’t know how many times you got.”

In spite of all that they have achieved in their respective careers — especially for Steph — it’s just great to hear how they both remain humble and grateful through it all. Sonya and Dell Curry definitely did a great job raising their kids.
