Steph Curry pokes fun at parents for cheering for both Warriors, Blazers

Steph Curry pokes fun at parents for cheering for both Warriors, Blazers

When you're the "royal family" of the NBA, sometimes you are faced with hard choices. But you also don't always have to make the tough choice, sometimes you can toe the line.

Such was the case with Dell and Sonya Curry during Game 1 of the Western Conference finals matchup between the Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers, and, more importantly, the matchup between their sons, Steph and Seth Curry.

Dell and Sonya devised a plan to flip a coin before each game to decide which son each would cheer for that night. 

But it didn't really go according to the script during the Warriors' blowout Game 1 win on Tuesday night.

Dell and Sonya sported double-sided jerseys to Game 1, with mom rocking Seth on the front and Steph in the back. Even though she was supposed to be cheering for Portland in Game 1, Steph caught his mom standing up in her Blazers gear cheering for him after one of his 12 made field goals.

The two-time NBA MVP poked some fun at his parents after the Warriors' 116-94 win.

“I think I caught myself a couple times looking up in the stands at my parents, who did the whole coin flip thing, and they can’t help themselves,” Curry said at the podium. “So any time either one of us did something good, they both were clapping. So they got to fix themselves (laughter). I told my mom, ‘Who you with?’ When I made a shot, I saw her stand up and cheer and I saw her in all Portland gear. It’s just weird.”

Steph was unstoppable in Game 1.

The Blazers gave him far too much room coming off screens and Steph torched them for 36 points, including nine 3-pointers.

Portland will need to make adjustments and fast, or else Dell and Sonya will be able to put the coin and double-sided jerseys away and prepare for the Warriors' fifth straight NBA Finals appearance.

The last time we saw the Warriors end up in the win column, they were hosting the Chicago Bulls on Nov. 27 with injured star Klay Thompson joining the broadcast as a sideline reporter at Chase Center.

Friday night will see the Warriors once again take the court opposite Zach LaVine and the Bulls, but this time the teams will be at the United Center in Chicago.

In case you forgot, last year’s matchup between these teams in Chicago featured a pretty impressive, record-breaking performance for Klay, as he drilled 14 three-pointers in a blowout win.

While we obviously won’t see Thompson on the floor in tonight’s edition, D’Angelo Russell returned to the court on Wednesday night and will play against the Bulls.

What Warriors do with their two-way players when held out of practice

What Warriors do with their two-way players when held out of practice

Warriors guards Ky Bowman and Damion Lee are on two-way contracts. By rule, they are allowed to be with Golden State for a maximum of 45 days.

Only games and official practices count against the limit, as travel days are not included.

The Warriors have been so banged up this season the team has had to be strategic with both players in order to squeeze as many games as possible out of them. 

For instance, the Dubs didn't practice in Houston about a month ago to preserve a day. On Thursday, coach Steve Kerr revealed that Bowman simply did not participate with the squad.

"He can't take part in team practice activity. So he can be in the building but he can't be out on the floor watching," Kerr explained Thursday evening on 95.7 The Game. "So what we do is we will have him come to the gym either before or after the team practice -- and we're doing the same thing with Damion Lee -- with one of our developmental coaches and get an individual workout.

"But they can't do the team workout or it costs us one of those 45 days."

The rules are quite strict.

"They have to watch the film separately from the team," Kerr said. "That's why we have individual coaches and developmental coaches assigned to every player."

Bowman already has used up 28 days -- 23 games plus five practices.

Lee only has played in 11 games (plus one practice), as he hasn't taken the floor since sustaining a non-displaced fracture of the fourth metacarpal in his right hand on Nov. 11.
