The Golden State Warriors came out on top against the Portland Trail Blazers on Saturday night with a 115-105 victory in Portland. It was a routine victory for the defending champions, but Warriors superstar Stephen Curry shared a special moment with his brother, Seth Curry, after the game.
The two siblings swapped jerseys at midcourt following the contest, and according to Steph, it was a moment that they will both cherish for the rest of their lives.
For Steph, this seemingly customary practice holds a lot of meaning for what it represents. It is not very often that two brothers are able to play against each other at the highest level, so each meeting obviously means a lot not only for Steph and Seth, but for the whole Curry family as well.
Among the two Curry’s though, it was Steph who starred on Saturday, as he dropped 25 points (on 6-of-15 shooting), two three-pointers, five rebounds, eight assists, two steals, one block, and two turnovers in 36 minutes of game time. The former back-to-back MVP winner also went 11-of-14 from the charity stripe.
It was a rather pedestrian performance by Curry’s high standards, but it was enough to help the Dubs extract some revenge on brother Seth and the Blazers, who defeated the Warriors on Thursday in Oakland.
For his part, Seth had another forgettable evening, scoring only three points, making 1-of-5 attempts. His only other counting stat in 16 minutes off the bench was one three-pointer and nothing else.
The Warriors are off on Sunday, and will be back in action on New Year’s Eve as they face the struggling Phoenix Suns on the road.
Steph on jersey swap with his brother, Seth: "It was a cool moment to just celebrate two brothers being in the league and doing what we're doing and representing our family well. So that jersey is going to have a special place in the man cave at the crib."
