Philadelphia 76ers goaltender Seth Curry enjoyed a top-down first season in the City of Brotherly Love. He started the season on a high streak, but then tested positive for COVID in January, and it took him a while to get back on track. Not only that, but he also faced nagging injuries.
In Tuesday Match 2 win over the Atlanta Hawks, Curry had a big game for 21 points and knocked down five of his six triples. It was an impressive performance and he continues to improve for the Sixers.
At the same time, the veteran Duke knows he’ll likely need a full summer to be able to put everything back in order.
“I feel great,” Curry said. “Once I have all summer, I’ll be back where I want to be, but I’m more than enough. The coach does a good job giving me rest when I need it and constantly communicating with them about how I feel on the pitch throughout the game. You just have to play through a lot during the playoffs. “
It was a great performance for the Sixers. They couldn’t afford to go to Atlanta with a 0-2 loss and Curry was one of the main reasons they were able to make the home work.
“I think it’s a good rebounding game for us,” said Curry. “Individually, just being consistent on both sides of the pitch sticks to our covers defensively, wreaks havoc and does a lot of things. Be versatile offensively, spread the ground and make plays, just to get a lot done. “
The scene is now moving to Atlanta with Game 3 of the series scheduled for Friday night in the ATL.
