Sibling rivalries are fun. They’re even more fun when they’re prominently featured in the final minutes of a down-to the-wire NBA playoff game.
With two minutes left in Game 2 of the Western Conference Finals, Warriors star Stephen Curry went to the free throw line with his team trailing 107-108. After sinking the first one to tie the game at 108, his younger brother Seth walked over to talk some smack to his big bro.
It was unclear at the time what the two said to one another, but Seth said after the game that he was trying to jinx his brother.
“I told him he made the first one, I told him that’s like 70 in a row. I tried to jinx him a little bit,” Seth laughed. “He’s like, ‘Alright, it’s going to be 72.’ He made ’em both, so he wasn’t fazed.”
Both Curry brothers turned in big performances in Game 2, with Stephen leading the Warriors in scoring with 37 points, and flirting with a triple-double after grabbing eight rebounds and dishing out eight assists.
Seth Curry scored 16 points off the Portland bench, and had a plus/minus of +13, the highest plus/minus for any player in Game 2.
Game 3 is scheduled for Saturday night at 6 p.m.
