Stephen and Seth Curry’s Thursday night performance in Game 2 of the NBA playoff’s Western Conference finals wasn’t just good.

It was historic.

The 53 combined points for the pair in a 114-111 win for Steph’s Warriors over Seth’s Blazers was the second most ever scored by two brothers in the NBA playoffs, second only to Albert and Bernard King who combined for 57 in a first round game between the Knicks and Nets in 1983.

It is also tied for the 14th most in NBA history — playoffs or otherwise — and puts the Currys ahead of the likes of the Gasol brothers (Marc and Pau), the Barry brothers (Brent, Drew, Jon), the Grant brothers (Harvey and Horace), and the Lopez Brothers (Brook and Robin).

In all, 61 sets of brothers have played together in the NBA, including Dominique and Gerald Wilkins, who hold the three highest combined scoring performances. On Dec. 7, 1991 the pair set the NBA record with a combined 78 points — 52 for ‘Nique, and 26 for Gerald — in a 137-128 win for Dominique’s Hawks over Gerald’s Knicks.

The only other pair of NBA siblings who have scored more combined than the Currys in a single game?

Tom and Dick Van Arsdale, who played against one another from the mid-’60s to the mid-’70s and twice scored a combined 58 in January of 1971 and February of 1972 while they were with the Phoenix Suns and Cincinnati Royals, respectively.
