Steph Curry took to Twitter to acknowledge his brother’s performance – tweeting ‘That’s nasty’.

Curry has been absolutely fantastic this year. Currently, he’s averaging 12 points per game, with 2 assists. While his points total isn’t remarkable, his conversion rate is. To be able to make shots at the rate at which Curry is doing on a consistent basis is nothing short of spectacular. Curry is providing a solid attacking option to the 76ers, and contributing as best possible.

While players like Joel Embiid are stealing the headlines for the 76ers, Curry has been quietly establishing himself as one of the best shooters in the NBA. Given that he is the brother of Steph Curry, the greatest shooter of all-time, his shooting prowess is not surprising. But even with his talent, this kind of conversion rate is absolutely incredible.

And being on 76ers, he is a key contributor to their championship hopes this year.

The arrival of Seth Curry was crucial for Ben Simmons. Simmons is notoriously poor at shooting, especially from beyond the arc. And the acquisition of Curry helps compensate for that, as it allows for Simmons to play the traditional point guard and make shots for his teammates. And with Curry playing with this rate, he could be the key for the 76ers to win an NBA championship.
