Dallas Mavericks: Seth Curry on Bleacher Report’s 2020 Playoff Robert Horry All-Stars

The Dallas Mavericks were not short on stellar performances in the playoffs. From Luka Doncic’s 43-point triple-double capped by a game-winning buzzer-beater in Game 4 to Kristaps Porzingis dropping 34 in Game 3 on an injured knee, their stars certainly stepped up. Fans know from the Mavs 2011 run that every role player needs to raise their level too. Seth Curry did that for Mavericks.

The 30-year-old guard was shifted back to the bench for matchup purposes. Mavs coach Rick Carlisle wanted to start Maxi Kleber on Kawhi Leonard. It did not phase Curry as he averaged 12.8 points and 1.0 steal in 28.8 minutes per game while shooting 58.5 percent from the field and 47.6 percent on his 3-point tries. The highlight was an impressive 22 points on nine of 11 shooting from the floor in Game 3 as Luka Doncic missed time with an ankle injury.

Curry’s postseason performance earned him honors on Oct. 6. Let us take a closer look at that.

Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry makes Bleacher Report’s 2020 Playoff Robert Horry All-Stars

Mandela Namaste of Bleacher Report wrote an outstanding piece on the role players that stepped up in the 2020 NBA Playoffs which he named the “Robert Horry All-Stars” for the seven-time NBA champion.

Curry was the second player mentioned in the article. It was an outstanding performance, but he did struggle in the final two games of the series when Dallas needed him most. Remember, Kristaps Porzingis was out by that point. The Mavericks needed more from Curry, but he produced 11 points combined in the two games.

The 30-year-old is a key piece of the Dallas Mavericks’ future. They love Seth Curry’s ability to space the floor and knock down shots. He is one of the best 3-point shooters in the NBA. Expect another career-year from Curry in 2021. Do not miss it.
