It’s a rematch of the NBA’s Western Conference Finals! … Um, well, sort of.
On Sunday night’s edition of “Celebrity Family Feud” (8 p.m., ABC), Golden State Warriors star Stephen Curry (and his clan) goes up against Houston Rockets star Chris Paul (and his clan) in a grudge match that features two of the NBA’s best point guards.
There is some history here, of course. Curry and Paul have been playing (and shimmying) against each other for years. Most recently, they met up in the hotly contested Western Conference Finals and Paul’s Rockets had the upper hand — holding a 3-2 lead — before the Warriors came back to knock off Houston and went on to capture their third NBA title in four years.
Of course, Paul suffered an untimely hamstring injury that forced him to miss the last two games of that series and Rockets fans will forever insist that had the all-star not gotten hurt, Houston would have played Cleveland for the NBA championship.
With that in mind, Sunday’s “Celebrity Family Feud” hosted by Steve Harvey, should have lots of spice to it. … Or it would have had it not been filmed way back in February, during the NBA’s All-Star break — long before the playoffs.
In addition to Steph, the Currys are represented by his wife, Ayesha, sister Sydel, mother Sonya and father Wardell. The charity they’re playing for is the Community Foundation of Sonoma County.
In addition to Chris, the Paul family will be repped by his wife, Jada, mother Robin, brother CJ and father, Charles. They’re playing for the Chris Paul Family Foundation.
