Dell, Sonya Curry enjoying Warriors-Blazers moment with Steph, Seth


It'll be all business Tuesday night at Oracle Arena when the Trail Blazers and Warriors meet in Game 1 of the Western Conference finals.

But in the two days leading up to the all-Curry NBA playoff bout, the family is just going to enjoy the moment as Steph and Seth prepare to vie for the right to go to the NBA Finals.

"It's a dream come true for both of us," Seth Curry said Sunday following Portland's 100-96 win in Game 7 over the Denver Nuggets, via ESPN. "Obviously, it's the first time it's been done. It's going to be a lot of fun for our families to be in the building. I'm looking forward to it."

Parents Dell and Sonya Curry already have prepared a plan for which son they'll cheer for during each game. While the tension of the Steph versus Seth matchup will be high, Sonya is choosing to look at the positive side of it. 

"It's going to be so much fun," Sonya Curry told ESPN. "It is. From our end, to see both of our sons to compete at this level and for the goal to be a championship is such a blessing. We never could imagine this.

"One of them might go home. But we're going to the championship!"

Since it's Seth's first time competing in the playoffs, Sonya is especially excited to watch the younger brother on this big of a stage.

"It's fun," she said. "It is really. I actually look forward to watching Seth and doing that. I want him to steal the ball and want him to shoot over Stephen and all that good stuff. I want him to have his moments, too."

After going down three games to two to the Nuggets, the Blazers rallied for wins in Game 6 and Game 7 to punch their ticket to their first conference finals since 2000, thanks in large part to CJ McCollum's 37-point bonanza in the decisive contest.

The Blazers now will face a Warriors team looking to head to its fifth consecutive NBA Finals. The last time the Blazers made the conference finals, they faced another juggernaut: The 2000 Shaq-Kobe Lakers.

While the Blazers battled the Nuggets in their grueling seven-game series, the Dubs had their hands full with James Harden and the Houston Rockets. After Kevin Durant suffered a right calf strain in Game 5, it appeared the Rockets finally might be able to knock off the NBA's Goliath, but Steph exploded for 33 second-half points in Game 6 to send Houston on summer vacation. 

Durant's status for the Western Conference finals still is up in the air. If he remains out, the load will fall on Curry, the two-time NBA MVP, to carry the Warriors past his brother and the Blazers. Steph is 7-2 lifetime in head-to-head meetings with Seth, but both those losses came this season.

Portland might appear to be outgunned, but it has posted a 4-3 record against Golden State over the past two seasons. So, don't count Seth and Rip City out before the opening bell rings.
