Former Duke basketball sharpshooter Seth Curry is continuing to help his upset-minded Dallas Mavericks against the Los Angeles Clippers.
This is a Duke-centered website, so obviously our angle on the series between the Dallas Mavericks and Los Angeles Clippers will be focused on former Blue Devil Seth Curry, but we have to lead with the heroics of Luka Doncic.
I mean that was absolutely incredible without fellow star Kristaps Porzingis and only having one healthy ankle and drilling a 30-footer at the buzzer in overtime to win the game.
That’s a special, special player.
Anyway, we transition to Curry, who was instrumental in Dallas’ 20-point second-half comeback as he poured in 15 points, one rebound, one assist, and one steal in 31 minutes on 6-of-9 shooting from the field and missing his lone 3-point attempt of the afternoon.
And what made the game more special for the youngest of the Curry brothers is that his family was in the virtual stands cheering for him on his 30th birthday.
As an under-the-radar player for Dallas, Curry has been sensational this series, combining for 66 points over the four games on 26-of-40 shooting, 9-of-16 from 3-point range.
However, there was a bit of an altercation on Sunday in the fourth quarter with Curry and struggling Clippers standout Paul George.
Following a made layup in which George fouled Curry on, Curry turned and called the All-Star a “b—- a–“.
While Seth Curry poked light at the situation between Montrezl Harrell and Doncic in Game Three in his postgame press conference yesterday, this feud between Curry and George has been lingering for a while, all stemming from relationship drama.
Seth Curry is married to Callie Rivers, the daughter of Clippers head coach Doc Rivers. Callie Rivers used to date Paul George until he allegedly cheated on her with an exotic dancer.

All this while George is averaging 11.3 points per game over his last three games and shooting 20-for-69 in this series, 10-of-47 in those last three games.
Is that enough to get you excited for Game Five?
The Mavericks and the Clippers are back in action on Tuesday, August 25 at 9:00pm EST on TNT.
