OAKLAND, California – The fact that Sonya Curry sent a group text to its extended family on the eve of the Western Conference Finals is no surprise.
She always sends inspirational texts to the family. Or, as she says, texes like Texas. However, this texes report was special because its sons – Stephen Curry from Golden State Warriors and Portland Trail Blazers – Seth Curry – the first brothers participating in the conference finals.
she doesn't like Currys to be called the NBA Royal Family or First Family – "These names come from other people," she says. "We don't say that we are. We are just like everyone else. – Sonya Curry wanted to make the family feel like and be attentive.
"Most of my texts are motivational," she told ESPN, when Seth's troops "Seth's Trail Blazers 1
"I send many Scriptures. At the moment I have just said: "God is the reason why we are in a position like a family. he helped us here, it depends on us to represent him in the classroom, court, where. ""
Answered by Seth's fiancee, Callie Rivers. So Stephen and his wife Ayesha. Also, Sonya's daughter, Sidel Curry Lee.

After a loss On Thursday, Seth stood side by side in front of the Arena Arena family room. He played great, so he scored 16 points for 9 points. But Warriors came back to win the game, which they scored 17 points. And his older brother drove 37 points and eight assistants again

"The West worked great," Stephen Curry joked after the game. "He played well and won." The room laughed. It was a great senior brother. But the devil, Seth Curry, wanted it. And Sonya also wanted it.
"You know what my prayers were?" she said, looking at her younger son. "Seth steals the ball from Stephen, go down and hit the shoot and raise his hands."
Seth really did that on Thursday. In fact, three of his four stolen players came at the expense of his elder brother
"I think I've seen every warrior game in the last 10 years," Seth Curry said. "Every Steph game. So I feel like I know some of the things they like to do and some things he likes to do. ”

But Seth and Trail Blazers are not in the mood for moral victories. These are the finals of the conference and they had champions of the competition. Meyer Leonard hit 3 arrows to give Portland a 108-100 leader with 4:28. However, Golden State closed for 14-3 years, while Portland spent eight out of the last nine shots and went 9-2.
Andre Iguodala closed down later stealing Damian Lillard's.
"We've stolen that game," said Warriors coach Steve Kerras. "I thought they defeated us for most of the night. The great part of the night. But in the second half of the year we brought enough competitive fire to overcome our huge game."
There were many such games during the troops. to run, and they are always so disastrous to opponents. Warriors will appear voluntarily, with regular seasonal intensity, says Kerr, and a huge opponent will use it to create a double count.
Then the troops find "the right fear" to quote San Antonio Spurs coach Gregg Popovich, and they are approaching the lead with the soldier and Klay Thompson's 3-point footsteps.
On Thursday, troops were hosing punches during the third quarter, when Thompson got through Portland at a pace of eight to eight years.
Since Blazers had the largest lead (67-50 with 11:44 left in the third) to reach Golden State in the first half of the year (77-75 with 3:48 left) quarter), Portland did not try one of the 3 arrows.
Seth Curry hit two deep 3-points from the area where the Oracle Arena crowd is used to see Steph's fire. His 3-marker with 5:31 go, gave Portland a seven-point lead and felt a bit like the future.
Did the little brother finally have his day? Whether you like "Currys" and their healthy, luxurious image, or a bit of saccharin, you should immediately associate with Seth Curry
Compete with an older brother as attractive and successful because Stephen Curry must be trying to push
As his elder brother went to the line of three critical freedoms, 2:01, Seth whispered to him after the first row: "It's 70 in a row."
Stephen broke his routine and looked at his brother. He knew what his younger brother was.
"I was trying to head and jump," Seth said.
"He looked at me and said," Well, now it will be 72. And then he did them.
