Reminder: Seth Curry Also Inherited the Clutch Gene

By Brian Kotloff | February 27, 2015

Seth Curry has proven it again and again and again: Like older brother Stephen, he rises to the occasion during the biggest moments on the court.

It happened again on Thursday night in Sioux Falls, where the Skyforce held Curry in check or 45 minutes before he got loose in the final three, hitting four straight shots after an 0-for-10 start. The last one gave the Erie BayHawks a 96-94 victory when the All-Star guard stepped back and drilled the go-ahead jumper with 0.8 seconds left.

He hit a game-winner at the buzzer in Erie to beat the East-leading Maine Red Claws a little more than one month earlier:

In his second pro season, Curry ranks second in the league in scoring at 23.3 points per game while shooting 49% from three-point range — also good for second. He’s cooled off after an off-the-charts early stretch, but remains one of the top NBA D-League prospects yet to sign an NBA deal this season.
