Seth Curry struggled from the field in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals between the Warriors and Trail Blazers.
The Blazers guard went 1-for-7 from the field in 19 minutes off the bench and was minus-10 in the plus-minus.
Perhaps he would have shot the ball better if he accepted Ayesha Curry's dinner invitation the night prior.
Sam Amick of The Athletic has the details:
He received a text message from his sister-in-law, Ayesha Curry, asking if he wanted to come by for some last-minute bread breaking before their unprecedented basketball battle ... with his family members enjoying each other’s company at Steph and Ayesha’s home, the 28-year-old Seth stayed sequestered with his teammates in San Francisco.
“It was a normal routine for me (on Monday), man,” Seth said. "I was just with the team, preparing for the game. Everybody was at Steph’s house, and I’m in San Francisco. Nah, I’m not in the mood (for a family get-together). I’m definitely not in the mood. …I respectfully declined.”
Whatever food was served certainly did the trick for Seth's brother and Warriors star Steph Curry.
The two-time NBA MVP scored 36 points (12-for-23 overall, 9-for-15 on 3s) and dished out seven assists.
Will the brothers communicate at all during the series?
“I doubt it. I mean, we’ll see what happens, but I doubt it," Seth told The Athletic. "I mean it’s weird being matched up against him every time we play, but there’s limited chances for me in my career to get to the NBA Finals, so I’m trying to do whatever I can to do my job to help us get there."
Right now, they are enemies.
Hahahaha. After Seth Curry gets away with a travel (and Hood hits a corner 3), Steph Curry tells Tony Brothers that Seth gets away with the travel pic.twitter.com/oMG3ScOyx7— Drew Shiller (@DrewShiller) May 15, 2019
