As expected, Curry was a bit rusty when he finally returned to the lineup, but getting back to his early-season form was more challenging than expected.
Before contracting COVID, Curry averaged 17 points while shooting 59-percent from three through the first eight games of the season. We have yet to see the Sixers veteran back in game action, but his acting head coach Dave Joerger revealed following Wednesday’s practice that Curry looked solid. “His body looked lively today. I was loving it. I thought he looked sharp today, made shots, just seemed like maybe as much mental. You don’t know what he got hit with and having to try to fight back through that. I’ve not been through it, but it seemed like it was wearing on him a little bit, and so we’re looking for big things from him in the second half.”
The Sixers need Curry to come back with more consistency beginning on Thursday night.
