Curry played four minutes of garbage time Sunday in the Grizzlies' 112-84 blowout win over the Detroit Pistons, his only appearance this season.
In those four minutes of action, Curry didn't record a single stat, but he did finish with a plus/minus ratio of plus-6, as per ESPN.
During his final season at Duke University in 2012-13, Curry averaged 17.5 points, 2.5 rebounds and 1.5 assists per game. He shot 46.5 percent from the field and 43.8 percent from three-point range.
Although he went undrafted in the 2013 NBA draft and has only notched four regular-season minutes thus far, Curry played solid basketball for the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Development League.
In 12 games played (11 starts), Curry averaged 21.3 points, 7.8 assists, 3.5 rebounds, 1.6 steals and 3.7 turnovers per game.
His shooting percentages from the field weren't eye-popping—43.9 percent from the field and 33.8 percent from three-point range—but he knocked down 83.6 percent of his attempts from the free-throw line.
Stephen Curry's younger brother will have to fight to earn an NBA roster spot, but his ability to shoot the ball speaks for itself. It may only be a matter of time before he finds a niche in the pros.
