On HBO’s Game of Thrones, fans have talked for several seasons about the Clegane Bowl, the confrontation between the Mountain and the Hound that seemed inevitable.
The Curry Bowl doesn't have quite the same ring but brothers Stephen and Seth Curry faced off in a conference finals, the first time that brothers had ever done so.
There have been a lot of brothers to overlap in the NBA. The Morris brothers are also in the league currently, there are (we think) three Holidays currently, there were three Plumlees and Horace and Harvey Grant were both accomplished pros in their day. Going back further, there were five Jones brothers, led by Caldwell of the 76ers.
None have ever done what the Currys are doing though, starting Tuesday night with Steph’s Warriors beating former Blue Devil Seth’s Trailblazers 116-94.
Steph was dominant in the game and the sibling rivalry: he scored 36 to lead all scorers and outscored little brother Seth by 30.
Seth was hardly the only Blue Devil on the court though. Rodney Hood had 17 off the bench for Portland, two points behind Damian Lillard’s team high 19, and Quinn Cook came off of Golden State’s bench to hit for eight.
He hasn’t played a lot in the playoffs but the Warriors have had to adjust without Kevin Durant and when he was called on, Cook performed like the champion that he is.
He’s not the best player in this series, but he is the only guy on either team to have both an NCAA and NBA championship under his belt.
