Seth Curry Continues to Thrive As He Guides Warriors' Success

Rob Carr

Seth Curry had another huge night against the Reno Bighorns this week, posting game highs of 23 points and 10 assists on Tuesday. He also outplayed rookie Ray McCallum, who has since been recalled by the Sacramento Kings. Needless to say, he's been leading the way as Santa Cruz keeps on winning.

In his first game with the Warriors, we saw Seth Curry light up the scoring column. In his second game, we saw him struggle, but make up for it by tying a franchise record, 11 assists. On Tuesday against the Reno Bighorns, we saw the best of both worlds.

The Bighorns haven't gotten off to a good start this season. Actually, they couldn't have gotten off to a worse one, losing all but one game by 20 or more points. But this matchup was an important one because it gave Seth a chance to go up against Ray McCallum who, unlike him, was drafted in the second round of the 2013 NBA Draft. Previously on assignment from the Sacramento Kings, McCallum has since been recalled, after having averaged 22.0 points, 5.0 rebounds and 3.7 assists over his first three games of the season. And against the Warriors, McCallum didn't have a bad night by any means - he scored his season average of 22 points on 42.8 percent shooting from the floor and dished out five assists.

But Curry? Well, in 39 minutes, the Blue Devil shot 9-for-16 from the field, scoring a game-high 23 points. He also dished out 10 assists, grabbed six rebounds and recorded two steals. He looked more under control and confident than he did in that second game in the Toros, the one in which he couldn't buy a shot. He did a fantastic job of mixing it up and more importantly, he let the game come to him. The end result was another Warriors victory on their home court and a personal victory for the young Curry for outplaying fellow rookie, Ray McCallum.

Now 3-0 on the season, the Warriors will have their first big tests on Friday and Saturday with back-to-back home games against the always resilient Bakersfield Jam and L.A. D-Fenders. With Seth Curry manning the ship, they should be just fine, but it will be interesting to see how the young point guard responds to his first back-to-back of the season.
