We may or may not have a matchup of the best shooting brothers in NBA history Monday when Golden State visits Philadelphia as the Warriors are listing two-time MVP Steph Curry and Kelly Oubre Jr. as questionable, while the 76ers are listing Steph's young brother Seth, Tobias Harris and Dwight Howard all as questionable, too. Philadelphia is a 9-point favorite on the William Hill Sportsbook NBA odds, but that certainly should rise to double digits if Steph Curry sits.
Obviously, Steph Curry, 33, is a first-ballot future Hall of Famer with those two MVP Awards and he's perhaps the greatest three-point shooter in league history. He leads the NBA in making 5.1 three-pointers per game this season on 42.7 percent from deep. Steph is closing fast for the NBA scoring title on Bradley Beal with Curry at 31.0 ppg and Beal at 31.1.
The 30-year-old Seth Curry (12.0 ppg) is no slouch at 41.0 percent from deep and actually has a better career three-point percentage of 43.7 than Steph does (43.4). Sixers coach Doc Rivers is the father-in-law of Seth Curry.
Steph Curry is dealing with a left ankle soreness and Oubre Jr. (15.3 ppg, 6.0 rpg) a left wrist issue. Curry played Saturday and had 47 points in a five-point loss in Boston but did injure that ankle with about seven minutes left. He stayed in the game. Oubre hasn't played since April 9.
Harris, meanwhile, is dealing with right knee soreness and Howard a left knee issue. Those two and Seth Curry (hip) all missed Friday's 106-103 home win over the Los Angeles Clippers. Harris is second on the team in scoring at 20.5 points per game, while Howard averages 6.8 points and 8.3 rebounds in about 17.5 minutes per game as a backup to Joel Embiid.
Philadelphia won at Golden State on March 23, 108-98. Harris had 25 points and 13 rebounds, while Embiid and Seth Curry were out. Oubre Jr. had 24 points and 10 rebounds for the Dubs, who were without Steph Curry. The Sixers are 9-3 against the spread in the past 12 meetings.
