Watch: Steph Curry assists His Dad For 3-Pointer
The two-time MVP and Warriors point guard passed the ball to Dell, the Hornets’ all-time leading scorer, who sank a deep 3-pointer off the glass in seemingly effortless fashion.
Like father, like son, apparently: both Currys’ ability to score from well beyond the 3-point line is impressive.

Steph Curry couldn’t help but pump his fist in the air, laugh and celebrate in awe of his 52-year-old father’s skill for making such a shot just a few feet from the sideline. Dell served as a commentator for the Hornets on Wednesday.
Curry finished with 39 points, including 11 3-pointers, in Wednesday’s win over Charlotte (23-27) at Oracle Arena in his return from a one-game absence due to illness.
In his last six quarters, the 28-year-old has hit 20 3-pointers and 82 points– and Golden State (42-7) have led by so much in the fourth quarter that coach Steve Kerr was able to rest his MVP for the period both times.
”It’s always cool to see my dad on the sidelines commentating the game on their end,” Curry said. ”You get a little juice from that, too. … I don’t take those opportunities for granted because this an unbelievable opportunity to play the game that he played for 16 years in the NBA and carry on that name in the league.”
Klay Thompson added 29 points for the Warriors, who have won seven of their last eight games and four straight. He also matched his career high with eight assists.
The Warriors next visit the Los Angeles Clippers on Thursday in a second straight back-to-back set.
The Hornets, who have lost six straight, will visit the Utah Jazz on Saturday.
