Last Friday, Seth Curry got the start for the injury-riddled Kings and produced 12 points in 26 minutes against the Phoenix Suns. It was a performance impressive enough to make the insatiable George Karl say Seth Curry “will be in the league for a few years.”
Two days later, Seth got the start again and put up 14 points and 3 assists in a win over the Mavs. The performance drew some rave reviews, especially from teammate DeMarcus Cousins, who interrupted a post game interview with Seth to say, “You going to be in this league a long time boy. Remember that, a long time!”
Basically Boogie was saying, don’t listen to George Karl and brother Steph Curry was in agreement.
You would probably expect a disappointing follow-up performance after the hype of that one. Well, not only did Seth not disappoint, he put up a game-high and career-high 21 points in a loss to Damian Lillard and the Blazers, while playing some decent defense against CJ McCollum.
But apparently that wasn’t what Coach Karl wanted from his point guard.
“Seth had a solid game,” Karl said. “I think the whole thing for us, we needed probably our guards to make basketball plays for each other, other than what we got done tonight. I thought we made some good plays but we never made the kind of plays like the extra pass play, the extra-together, kind of ‘we’ play that motivates a team that has to overachieve to be good. We never got that kind of karma.”
And I have a feeling we will never get something 100% positive from Karl during his remaining days in Sacramento.
