Dallas Mavericks: 5 takeaways from Game 3 loss to LA Clippers
Dallas Mavericks takeaway from Game 3 loss to Clippers: 3. Curry is on fire
Seth Curry has moved to the bench in this series for matchup reasons. The 29-year-old has absolutely caught fire, though. He was nine of 11 from the field in game three including hitting all four of his 3-point attempts. Curry finished with 22 points, three assists, and one steal.
The Mavericks guard is known for his 3-point shooting. He has the second-highest career 3-point percentage in NBA history, but his creative ability has been on display in this series. Curry has driven into the lane and scored some easy baskets. The Mavs will need that if Luka is forced to miss time with his ankle sprain.
Curry has been fantastic in the series. He is 20 of 31 from the field over the three games including making nine of 15 on 3-point attempts. Fans have seen Curry catch fire like this before. Hopefully, the Mavericks guard can keep it rolling throughout the playoffs.
Seth Curry is an underrated defender and key piece for the Dallas Mavericks moving forward. Do not let the move to the bench fool you. The team loves his contributions and plans on keeping him around to space the floor for Luka Doncic and Kristaps Porzingis for years to come.
Next: No. 2
