Philadelphia 76ers star Seth Curry has got off to a fantastic start and is on pace for record numbers, even his brother hasn’t done that yet. The younger Curry has been nothing but fantastic for Philly so far this season and his shooting numbers so far have been nothing but a breath of fresh air as the Sixers try to work their way out of all the Ben Simmons drama.
Seth has definitely been fired up this season. The 31-year-old shot 61.6% from the field while shooting 53.1% from outside the arc with an average of 17.8 points per game. And, per StatMuseNo one has ever finished a season averaging 15 points per game on 60% shooting and 50% from deep — not even two-time MVP and his older brother Stephen Curry of the Golden State Warriors.

Curry has carried the scoring burden for the Sixers all season so far. In nine games, Seth started them all and was on target with his shooting. Aside from his poor shooting night against the New York Knicks, where he finished with just four points, the Duke alum has scored double-digits in the rest of Philly’s games this season, including a 28-point blast against the Oklahoma City Thunder.
On Thursday, on the road against the Detroit Pistons, Seth Curry was once again on fire, lighting up the scoreboard with a game-high of 23 points on 9-of-14 shooting as he took down four triples.
It’s been a career season for the younger Curry and I’m pretty sure Steph, as well as the rest of the family, is more than proud.
