It was a pretty exciting week of basketball for the Curry family. On Thursday, in Oakland, Steph Curry’s Golden State Warriors hosted Seth Curry’s Portland Trail Blazers. Then, on Saturday, Portland returned the favor.
After the second contest, cameras caught the brothers - who are close friends - having a special moment on the court. With the game over, the sharpshooters took off their jerseys and gifted them to each other. It was a symbol of how special it is that the two both made it to this level, and get to face each other on the largest stage.

The younger Curry is in his first year with the Blazers, his sixth team since entering the league in 2013. He’s trying to regain his value after posting a career-best 12.8 points per game in 2016-17, but missing the entire 2017-18 season with a tibia injury. So far this year he’s averaging 5.1 points per game, but shooting a league-best 50.0% from three-point range.
When it comes to competitive brotherly bragging rights, Steph is currently in the lead; the two bros have matched up against each other eight times in their NBA careers, with the Warriors winning seven of those games.
