You may need to do a double-take.
Then again, maybe as a Suns fan you want to look away.
Phoenix hosted the Sacramento Kings for the penultimate game of a disappointing 2015-16 season, and if you didn’t look close enough or can’t tell royal purple from blue and gold, Seth Curry might’ve been mistaken for brother Stephen Curry on Monday.
Nope, that’s just a surprising box score from a guy who has been trying to make it in the NBA over the last few years.
Most recently in 2014-15, Curry was attempting to stick with the Suns, but he played in just two games on a 10-day deal.
Monday, Curry was exacting a revenge game of sorts. He poured in 20 points and career-high 15 assists — his previous was just six — and the way he did it in a 105-101 Kings win looked just like his big brother.
It marked the first career double-double for the 25-year-old Curry, who for a struggling Kings squad played in 42 games this season and averaged a modest 6.4 points in 15 minutes per game.
First it was a pump-fake, spin, step-back three-point hit. Then, it was weaving like a snake through pick-and-roll traffic before a fake behind-the-back pass and running floater off the glass.

There was also a pretty behind-the-back pass somewhere in there.

And finally, it was Curry on the fastbreak flipping a ball behind his head and over the shoulder for a Willie Cauley-Stein jam.
