THE CURRY FAMILY STIR THINGS UP

This past week offered a number of surprises much which involved the NBA All-star game. The highlight of the week was Step and Seth Curry's mom winning a shooting contest. It was for a family charity in which all immediate family members were involved including sons Step and Seth. The video of the event is available on You Tube which we reviewed it in our Video Beat column.

Basically the Curry's were sprinkled throughout the All-star weekend. One highlight was a bet between Step and Seth that the brother with the lowest score in the 3 Point Competition would have to pay for the entire family's expenses to games in which they play against each other. With both of their teams being in the Western Conference they can meet several times during the season. Seth is currently playing for the Portland Trailblazers and Sep remains a super star for the Golden state Warriors.

With the bet the tables were set for the possible greatest duel in the history of the contest… the problem is it didn't happen. Seth failed to make it out of the first round scoring 16 points to Sep's 27 which was the highest in the round. Sep's total was the eighth best out of the 10 competitors.

Currently Seth Curry is shooting an NBA-best 48.5 percent from three-point range after missing last season with a leg injury.

.In the second round Sep scored 24 points finishing 2nd to the underdog and winner Joe Harris of the Brooklyn Nets who notched 26 points.

Harris is an interesting subject. He qualifies as an underdog. Now in his fourth season and 2nd NBA team after being with the Cleveland Cavaliers for two seasons where he saw limited playing time.

After joining the Nets his playing time increased to 25 minutes a game up from a two season average of 6 minutes a game with the Cavaliers. His productivity has helped the Nets to be in playoff contention at the All-star break holding down the sixth position of the eight teams that will qualify; they currently have a 30-29 record.

Harris claims the success of the team is the extra effort and cohesion of players that were discarded by other teams. Basically the Nets are the leagues overachieving team of underdogs.

Will they make the playoffs… stay tuned?
