Seth Curry is another interesting name ahead of the postseason. The Duke product has been a part of four playoff runs, including his most recent stint with the Nets just a year ago. Despite Brooklyn’s being swept in the first round by the Celtics, Curry still provided promising minutes alongside Kevin Durant and Kyrie Irving. In the four games, he averaged 14.5 points per game, 2.5 rebounds per game, and 1.6 assists per game, shooting an efficient 52.3% from field goal range and 47.5% from three.
This season, Curry has seemingly taken a backseat role under the new coaching changes. The guards minutes are down 10.0 minutes per game from last season, which obviously took a toll on Curry’s play throughout the season. The six-foot-one shooter is averaging 9.2 points per game, 1.6 rebounds, and 1.6 assists per game. A fairly big drop-off from his product last year under former head coach Steve Nash.
With his minutes already fluctuating towards the end of the season, it wouldn’t be totally shocking to see Vaughn take a different approach against the Sixers and their elite guard play. While Curry offers a lot offensively, his play on defense could be a concern for their matchup with Philadelphia.
