Seth Curry has his Twitter bio saying, “Living life one day at a time”. Good for Seth, but his All-Star brother, Stephen Curry, took the life out of Team Durant, “one three-pointer at a time”. Such was the crazy level of play shown by the Warriors’ point guard during the NBA ASG 2021 in Atlanta.

The commercials aired between the game showed Chris Paul promoting State Farm, and Draymond Green endorsing Subway. But every time the game came back on the screen, it was Chef Curry cooking his three-point meal and dishing out delicious scoring to give Team LeBron a cutting-edge gain.

Steph Curry looked like he was playing in the prime of his career, with a tenacity that of someone playing in his first NBA ASG. He used the three-point contest earlier tonight as his practice for the main event at the State Farm Arena.

Steph scored 12 points in the first quarter and added 10 more in the following quarter. This made him equal the combined halftime score from Team Durant’s starters in center Zion Williamson (8 points) and guard Bradley Beal (14 points). While James Harden added triple threes by the first half, Curry already had six (75% accuracy) to his name. 

Team LeBron won both quarters even as they trailed earlier in Q2. However, the way they made a comeback after the mid-break in Q2, took them towards a cumulative 20-point lead by halftime.

The match looked rather one-sided as the fans waited for a turnaround in the second leg of the game. Stay tuned for more interesting updates on ASG 2021.
