Steph Curry Says Seth Curry Has Taken Game to Next Level in Dallas
Stephen Curry and Seth Curry took their brotherly bond to the court on Tuesday night, but afterwards, the MVP took time to praise his younger brother.
For the second time in their life, the Curry brothers took the court against each other as starters for their respected teams.
Stephen, the two-time MVP and NBA champion is one of the faces of the NBA while his younger brother, Seth, is just now coming into his groove in a breakout season in Dallas.
The first time they took the court as starters together was back in November when the Warriors beat the Mavericks by 21 points in Golden State. On Tuesday night, it was Seth’s turn to host the family reunion as he welcomed his older brother to the city where he is writing his own story.
This time, the Curry brothers brought out special shoes to commemorate the night as they teamed up with Under Armour to create s style of shoe that both brothers could wear in the game.
But no matter how many times the brothers go against each other, it never loses its surreal feeling.
"“It’s surreal kind of feeling still. Just to see your brother you have battled with since we could remember on the NBA floor together, it’s special,” Stephen Curry said to reporters after the game. “It’s amazing to see what he has done here in Dallas taking his game to the next level and showing what he is really about.”"
The next level that Steph is talking about is the career numbers that his younger brother has put up in Dallas this year. Seth is putting up career numbers in points, rebounds, and assists as he is shooting over 42% from behind the arc.
“Put the ball in his hands and usually good things happen,” -Steph Curry on Seth
For Seth, it still feels surreal to him, but it’s a little different when you get beat up on every time you play your brother. When Seth Curry was asked by the media after the game about playing against his brother, he had this to say,
“Fun moment, a lot of fun until the game started and they started beating up on us. Stuff you dream about as a kid. Both of us being in the NBA and starting, it’s a special moment for our family,” Seth Curry said.
Just like earlier in the year, when I asked Seth about his confidence, it was always the same story back: he always had the confidence, this is about the opportunity and comfort.
His older brother agreed on Tuesday night.
“He’s always had the confidence, he just needed the opportunity and the right situation,” Steph said. “To showcase what he is about, his skills on the court. He’s done that here. I think you saw some bright spots in Sacramento last year, but his opportunities were kind of sporadic. Dude is an unbelievable player and skilled in all areas of the game. Put the ball in his hands and usually good things happen.”
Now, in Dallas, Seth Curry has gotten the opportunity and is in the right situation.

Both Steph and Seth downplayed any type of trash talk, but Steph did mention a play that he was glad that didn’t work out for his brother.
“He got me with a pump fake tonight and I’m glad he missed it. The only time I’m glad he missed a shot. I fell for it and I knew it was coming,” Steph said.
When Steph chimed in about Seth’s confidence, he was asked by the media if Seth thinks he is a better shooter than him. Curry responded with a supportive brother answer.
“Of course he does and that’s how he is supposed to think. My pops still thinks he’s the better shooter.”
So what does Seth think about their father saying Seth is the better shooter?
“I haven’t heard that,” Seth Curry said with a huge grin on his face.
