By Tyler Watts
Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry dropped 26 points against the Hornets in Charlotte on Feb. 8. Here is a look back at the game and his performance.
The Dallas Mavericks had lost two straight games entering Saturday’s contest. It was also the second of a back-to-back for the Mavs. They traveled to face the Charlotte Hornets on Feb. 8.
The Hornets are struggling right now. They lost 12 of their last 13 entering Saturday’s contest. The Hornets were finalizing buyouts with veterans Michael Kidd-Gilchrist and Marvin Williams as well.
The Mavericks got off to a blazing start in Charlotte. They led 31-10 at the end of the first and never looked back. The Mavs walked away with a 116-100 road win. It was a fantastic team effort with six players scoring in double-figures. That is more impressive consider Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis were both out on Saturday.
Willie Cauley-Stein stood out while filling in for KP. He earned his second start with Dallas. WCS had 15 points, ten rebounds, and two blocks in 25 minutes including shooting a perfect seven of seven from the field. He also led the Mavs with an impressive plus-25 during his time on the court.
Seth Curry was the man of the night for the Dallas Mavericks, though. The 29-year-old is from Charlotte, and he made the most of his homecoming. Curry finished with 26 points, six rebounds, and three assists in 28 minutes off the bench. Here is a closer look at his performance against the Hornets.
