NBA: Playoffs-Portland Trail Blazers at Golden State Warriors

As we’ve said before, the Curry vs. Curry battle in the NBA Western Conference Finals is a first in the NBA, the first time brothers have played at that level.

And it’s having some unusual effects. Check out what Stephen said he felt when Seth took a jumper in Game 1: “I was like, ‘I’ll be okay if he makes this one. I’m gonna still contest really hard so it looks good on film, but I might be okay with him making it.”

He’s a killer competitor so that’s a fascinating insight really and something he’ll never say again about anyone else.

And in Game 2 it didn’t much matter anyway. Seth scored 17 but Stephen more than doubled that with 37.

One last note: Stephen went to the line in this game with a 70 foul-shot streak, which Seth helpfully pointed out to him (“that’s 70 straight”).

Stephen said it’s about to be 72 and just like that, it was.

If you’re the king’s brother you get a little more slack, but even so, if you’re going to strike the king, as they say, you’d better kill him or he will surely kill you.

Rodney Hood had 12 for Portland while fellow former Blue Devil Quinn Cook had two points for Golden State.
