Seth Curry had a night to remember last Friday when he posted some impressive numbers for the Dallas Mavericks.
Although the Mavs ended up losing the game against the Miami Heat, 126-118, Curry was simply amazing against the Heat as he made 13 of his 15 field goal attempts, including converting eight of his nine shots from downtown while finishing with a career-high 37 points.
He’s been playing great basketball recently. Over the last 10 games, the six-year veteran has averaged 18.9 points and shot 56 percent from the field and an even hotter 57.6 percent from beyond the 3-point arc.
When we talk about 3-pointers, most of the time we refer to Seth’s brother, Stephen, who is considered the best shooter of all time. However, after his explosion against the Heat, Seth Curry has quietly moved past Hubert Davis and into second place in 3-point shooting percentage with at least 250 made threes in NBA history.
Stephen Curry’s coach, Steve Kerr, tops the list at 45.4 percent, Seth Curry is shooting 44.2 percent, Davis is third at 44.1 percent, Drazen Petrovic sits fourth at 43.7 percent and Stephen Curry rounds out the top five at 43.5 percent.
Although it hasn’t been as good as his brother’s, Seth Curry’s career has gotten better throughout the years. Even though he’s not as famous as Steph, the younger Curry has shown he can be a very good player in the league, too.
