Golden State Warriors star point guard Stephen Curry says he gets nervous watching his brother, Portland Trail Blazers guard Seth Curry, play on TV.
Steph was watching Game 7 between the Blazers and Denver Nuggets and rooting for Portland. The Warriors guard says every time his brother shoots the ball, he gets some butterflies in his stomach.
“I get nervous watching him play regardless,” Steph told Rachel Nichols of ESPN. “Every time he shot it, every time CJ (McCollum) hit a tough shot, I was part of the Portland faithful for a little bit (in Game 7 vs. Nuggets).”
The Curry brothers are the first siblings in NBA history to meet in the Conference Finals. The Warriors are up 1-0 in the series and will look to take a 2-0 lead on Thursday.
Steph scored 36 points in Game 1 to lead the Warriors to a 22-point win. With Kevin Durant out with a right calf injury, the Warriors have once again made Steph the No. 1 option on offense like the old days before KD came to Golden State.
Seth scored just three points in Game 1 on 1-of-7 shooting.
The sharpshooter and the rest of his Blazers teammates will look to bounce back in Game 2 at Oracle Arena.
