Seth Curry finished with 28 points and he shot 6-for-7 from deep, and he also had three assists and he worked the two-man game with Joel Embiid.
“He’s been great,” Embiid said. “He’s doing his job. I don’t know if he ever misses. He started the game 6-for-6 from 3. That was a great pickup. I give a lot of credit to Daryl (Morey) for making it happen. Obviously, with the guys that we have around this year, it’s a little easier than it has been. It’s easier for me, it’s easier for Ben, it’s easier for everybody. The ball moves, everybody shares the ball, shooters shoot, and we all dominate.”
“Yeah, and I said this earlier, Seth is a terrific pick-and-roll player,” coach Doc Rivers said. “He puts the ball on the floor and he makes great decisions. He knows he has a cannon, so he knows people are running out at him out of control, and he can always pump fake and put it on the floor. One of our better plays was the pick-and-roll play with Joel and Seth. We trust him a lot with the ball.”
