Stephen Curry has had a history of ankle injuries over his brief NBA career thus far, but that didn’t matter to Duke guard and younger sibling, Seth Curry who flew in to Oakland to watch his brother play the Denver Nuggets. Seth didn’t care as he is enduring his own injuries as the younger brother of the sharpshooting Stephen Curry, had to have surgery just two weeks ago.
“I told him to suck it up,” Seth Curry told USA TODAY Sports after the Warriors downed the Nuggets 110-108 at Oracle Arena to take a 2-1 series lead. “He knows I played all year with an injury. It’s a different situation, but I knew he’d do whatever it takes to play.”
And boy did Stephen Curry deliver. Steph finished the night with 29 points and dished out 11 dimes as the Warriors survived a last second three-point field goal attempt from Denver’s Andre Iguodala to go up 2-1 in this best of seven series. Stephen has proved his toughness throughout this series as the Warriors are already without all-star David Lee who’s out with a torn right hip flexor suffered in Game 1.
Game four is Sunday at 9:30 Eastern time.
