Warriors’ Stephen Curry says Game 2 ‘worked out perfectly’ because Blazers’ Seth Curry played well but didn’t win
The biggest storyline surrounding the Western Conference Finals has been the matchup between brothers Stephen Curry and Seth Curry. The Golden State Warriors’ star admitted that while he is looking to put the Portland Trail Blazers away as soon as possible, he would not mind seeing his younger sibling put up some numbers.
Fortunately, he has been able to have his cake and eat it too so far after the Warriors took a 2-0 series lead. According to Anthony Slater of The Athletic, Curry admits things worked out in Game 2:
“It worked out perfectly tonight. (Seth) played well and we won.”
This is the first time the elder Curry was able to enjoy all aspects of the game this series. Although the Warriors managed to take Game 1, his younger brother struggled to make an impact after finishing with just three points on 1-of-7 shooting. He was able to bounce back with a strong performance in Game 2, scoring 16 points o an efficient 5-of-9 shooting. Unfortunately for his older brother, it nearly came at the cost of an upset victory.
There is no question that this series has brought on plenty of mixed feelings for the Curry family. The brothers are not the only ones struggling to root for each other. Their parents have taken to getting both their jerseys sewn on the front and back to ensure their sons get an equal amount of love and representation from each of them. While it is a special time in the Curry household, it will likely get even more difficult to celebrate once the series comes to an end.
