Not only are teams missing chunks of players at a time due to contact tracing, but there’s also been a handful of players who have tested positive and have since then struggled to get back on track since getting on the court post-COVID.
Markdown Sixers veteran guard Seth Curry as one of those players. On Thursday, against the Dallas Mavericks, Curry accounted for 15 points in the Sixers’ win over the Mavs. He shot efficiently from the field, knocking down six of his nine attempted shots, and drained all three of his three-point attempts.
“I just think shooters shoot; they go through low stretches,” Sixers head coach Doc Rivers said after Saturday’s game. Without the Sixers’ third star Tobias Harris on the floor, the Sixers will need Curry to step up and shoot more consistently moving forward.
