Seth Curry tried to turn back the clock and play the role of pesky little brother on Thursday night. He did it well, too, stealing the ball from older brother Steph four times and scoring 16 points off the bench in Game 2 of the Western Conference finals.
Before the Warriors eventually escaped Seth's Blazers, 114-111, to take a two-games-to-none lead in the best-of-seven series, the younger Curry tried to distract his elder at the free throw. Good luck with that.
"He [Steph] made the first one [free throw] and I told him that was like 70 in a row," Seth told reporters after the game. "I tried to jinx him a little bit. He was like, 'Alright, it's gonna be 72.' He made 'em both."
Take a look at the brotherly love below:

"He tried to distract me at the free throw line in the fourth quarter," Steph said, "and I knew how to kind of go back at him to stay focused on what I needed to do."
Older brother Steph got the better of Seth in what was truly a battle of the Curry family that has their parents on an emotional roller coaster. The Warriors' star point guard scored a game-high 37 points and added eight assists and eight rebounds in the win.
The brothers' next chance to one-up each other comes Saturday in Game 3 at the Moda Center in Portland.
