JamesOn was the NBA D-League’s 8th GATORADE Call-Up this season when he signed with the Clippers on Jan. 22nd. For the Clippers, he played a total of 3.9 seconds at the end of the third quarter in the game against the Celtics on the 25th.
Curry’s efforts paid off as he helped defend the basket from Celtics Rajon Rondo during an inbound play in those final seconds of the third. While he did not return in the fourth quarter, Curry was able to make his NBA debut and in front of some of his now newly reunited teammates from the Armor who traveled to Boston to see him play.
Curry is expected to join his team back on the court tonight as the Armor takes on Fort Wayne at 7 p.m. EST.
