For a little while on Thursday night in Oakland, the Curry brothers were going at it like they were playing ball in their driveway in Charlotte.

Steph Curry of the Warriors (37) and Seth Curry of the Trail Blazers (16) combined for 53 points in a game that eventually saw Golden State hold off Portland for a 114-111 win and a 2-0 lead in the Western Conference finals.

Seth did all he could to get Portland the W and drained a what could have been game-winning shot, a 3-pointer to put the Blazers up two with a minute to play.

But it was not to be as the Warriors got a pair of buckets from Kevin Looney and Draymond Green — the latter of which was an assist from Steph — to take back the lead and get the win.

Before the game, their father Dell (a former NBA sharpshooter in his own right) showed his loyalty for both of his sons.

After the Warriors escaped with the win, Steph talked about playing against his little brother.

Despite the loss, Seth (who also had four steals) has nothing to hang his head about as he was a game-high — for both teams —plus-13 in his 29 minutes on the floor.

“[There] wasn’t too much chatter [between us],” he said after the game. “[We were] both locked in and trying to win the game. It’s not a regular-season game, there’s a lot of stuff on the line and we’re just competing. … I feel like [Steph] was thinking about where I was at. I was trying to make it tough on him. Like I say, he’s going to do what he does, but if you make him work a little more it gives us a chance to win.”
