Philadelphia 76ers guard Seth Curry returned to action on Wednesday in a loss to the Golden State Warriors after missing a game with back tightness. A back injury can always be tricky: It can linger if not treated correctly or given the proper rest.

Curry looked pretty solid against the Warriors. He finished with 24 points and was making good moves off the dribble to the basket and in the midrange game. On a night the Sixers needed it, this was a good performance.

He shot 8-for-16 from the floor and 8-for-8 from the free-throw line. The free-throw attempts are something Curry doesn’t contribute all that much. He is normally a jump shooter rather than a guy who attacks the basket like that. He was 0-for-5 from deep in this one.

“I felt good, two days can do a lot for you, so I felt pretty good,” Curry said after the game. “I wouldn’t say I had a great game, but I was solid. If I would have made some 3-pointers, it would have been a little bit better. We kind of stalled there offensively as a team in the second half. We had a chance. I think there’s a lot of good stuff we can take from this game.”

Curry, like the entire Sixers really, struggled in the second half. He shot 2-for-6 and had seven points after scoring 17 in the first half. Basketball is a make-or-miss game and that can be the deciding factor as it was in the second half on Wednesday.

“I thought he was great in the first half like everybody,” said coach Doc Rivers of Curry. “I thought we all struggled in the second half.”

Curry and the Sixers return home to host the Minnesota Timberwolves after a 2-4 road trip.
