Seth Curry has been listed as probable for the Sixers’ marquee top of the league matchup with LeBron James and the Lakers tonight.
Curry is attempting nearly 5 3-pointers a game and has connected on over half of them through 17 games of the season. Till recently, Curry led the league in 3-point percentage. He’s currently second in the standings after the Lakers’ Alex Caruso at a percentage of 53.7%.
Acquiring Seth Curry and Danny Green has been immensely helpful to the Sixers offense. Along with Tobias Harris, the duo space the floor eminently well for Joel Embiid and Ben Simmons. The Sixers’ All Stars are playing with such great shooters for the first time in their career, and it has been great for them.
Led by Embiid, who’s having an MVP-caliber season, the Sixers sit 2 wins clear of the Celtics at the top of the East. They will be looking to build on this with a home win over the Lakers.
Sixers provide injury update for Seth Curry ahead of Lakers game
There’s a good chance the 76ers guard won’t miss Wednesday’s game against the Lakers. Curry has been listed as probable for the contest at the Wells Fargo Center with a sore right ankle.
Although Seth wasn’t all too great in the Sixers’ loss to the Pistons, his spacing will still be tactically crucial. This will allow the Sixers to deploy Embiid in the post as a playmaker with more gumption.
