Steph Curry suffered a dislocated middle finger on his left hand, while James Harden took an inadvertent poke to the eye and appeared to be in major discomfort. Both would finish the game, fortunately.

The Portland Trail Blazers weren't the only winners Sunday.

Portland's 100-96 Game 7 victory over the Denver Nuggets means that Trail Blazers guard Seth Curry will square off against Stephen Curry's Golden State Warriors in the next round - making them the first pair of brothers to oppose one another in the same conference finals, according to Elias Sports Bureau, via ESPN.

Before the series tips off Tuesday, the elder Curry contacted Seth immediately after Sunday's game in anticipation of their historic meeting.

"(Stephen) texted me right after the game and he said, 'I'll see you Tuesday,'" Seth told reporters postgame. "It's hard to believe right now. So many years I've watched Steph play in the Western Conference finals, the NBA Finals, and being in the crowd.

Is this the Raptors’ endgame?

Is this the Raptors’ endgame? Down 2-1 to a rising power, with Kawhi Leonard’s decision looming, the future looks stormy in Toronto. Something I think about every time the Toronto Raptors are at some crossroads is that Masai Ujiri, the famed front office maestro, almost tore this team apart when he first arrived in the North. He traded away Andrea Bargnani for a pick and Rudy Gay for spare parts, and in that moment, it would have been easy to imagine Kyle Lowry, Jonas Valanciunas, and even DeMar DeRozan hitting the market.

Wilson Walker reports on the anticipated meeting of brothers Stephen and Seth Curry in the Western Conference Finals (5-13-2019).

"It's going to be fun to be out there on the court, competing to get to that final. It's a dream come true for us two, obviously, but our families are going to have a lot of fun with it as well."

Their parents, Sonya and ex-NBA vet Dell Curry, have been traveling across the country throughout the playoffs to support their sons in person. Their plan is to flip a coin as to who'll wear Blazers or Warriors gear, according to ESPN's Rachel Nichols.

The entire NBA playoffs have been a family affair for Stephen Curry. His Warriors defeated his brother's future father-in-law - Los Angeles Clippers head coach Doc Rivers - in the first round and Doc's son - Houston Rockets guard Austin Rivers - in the following matchup. Seth Curry is currently engaged to Doc Rivers' daughter.
