Steph Curry shares his message to brother Seth after playoff sweep
Stephen Curry and his Golden State Warriors prevailed in their Western Conference finals matchup with Seth Curry and his Portland Trail Blazers as expected. Though the Warriors are returning to the NBA Finals and Seth is going home, Steph feels his brother made a statement during the series.
Asked after Golden State won 119-117 in overtime of Game 4 on Monday night to sweep the series, Steph shared his message for Seth.
“Somebody had to lose but this is just the beginning for him and his career in terms of being on this stage. He’s proved to a lot of people that no only does he belong, but he can play big minutes in playoff games,” Steph told ESPN’s Doris Burke. “We’ll remember this for the rest of our lives and for our family back at home watching. This is what it’s all about.”
Seth went undrafted out of college, barely played over his first three seasons in the league, spent a season out of the league, and then signed with Portland and proved he can contribute. His biggest contribution came guarding his brother in the series; he had seven steals including four in Game 2, and talked some trash to Steph.
Golden State moves on to their fifth straight Finals, while Portland goes home after their best season since 2000.
