CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Devin Booker is ready to take on the Curry brothers.
The Phoenix Suns guard will look to defend his NBA All-Star 3-point championship from a year ago against brothers Stephen and Seth Curry on Feb. 16 in Charlotte, North Carolina. Stephen Curry, who plays for the Golden State Warriors, won the event in 2015 while brother Seth, who plays for the Portland Trail Blazers, is competing in his first 3-point contest.
PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — With the Trail Blazers playing without All-Star guard Damian Lillard, CJ McCollum reminded everybody just how good Portland's other guard are.

The Golden State star says the contest will be fun, but he knows his brother is "going to be gunning for me, though. That's the problem."

DALLAS (AP) — Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry has undergone season-ending surgery for a stress fracture in his lower left leg and is expected to resume full activities within three months.
Curry, the younger brother of Golden State star Stephen Curry, hasn't played this season because of the injury. The 27-year-old will be an unrestricted free agent this summer. Curry had the procedure Thursday.
Dallas Mavericks guard Seth Curry will have surgery for a stress fracture in his lower left leg, an injury that has sidelined him all season, a person with direct knowledge of the decision said Tuesday.

DALLAS (AP) — Mavericks guard Seth Curry was a late scratch against Oklahoma City with a left shoulder injury.
The absence ended a streak of 34 straight starts for the younger brother of Golden State star Stephen Curry. Dallas was 20-14 in those starts after a horrid start for an injury-plagued team.
Seth Curry was replaced in the lineup Monday night by rookie Yogi Ferrell, who earned a two-year deal with a flashy debut in seven straight starts after joining the Mavericks on a 10-day contract.
DALLAS (AP) — A double dose of Curry, with big brother coming out on top again.

WASHINGTON (AP) — If the Dallas Mavericks make an unlikely run to the playoffs, their final quarter on Wednesday night might turn out to be the start of it.

DALLAS (AP) — It seems so long ago when Dirk Nowitzki was sidelined with a sore Achilles and the Dallas Mavericks were at the bottom of the Western Conference.
Things sure have changed in just a few months.
Nowitzki is now closing in on another milestone and the Mavs are making a serious run at the playoffs.
DALLAS (AP) — Nerlens Noel had to wait an extra game for his first start in Dallas because he was late to the plane for his first road trip.
