Saturday's Three-Point Contest offered brothers Steph Curry and Seth Curry a chance to compete against each other on more even footing than a Warriors-Trail Blazers game would. Ahead of the matchup, the Curry brothers decided to place a little wager.

Per ESPN, Steph revealed that a sizable amount of money would potentially be on the line. He stated that whoever loses between the two of them would have to pay for for all tickets that family members buy for games they play against each other for the rest of their careers.

"Family's obviously big for us and like our support," Stephen said Saturday. "So kind of wanted to weave that into the bet, so whoever loses has to pick up the tab for all the tickets any time we play against each other for the rest of our careers. Which, the stakes are high considering how many people show up for our games. I got to get the best of him tonight. I know he's very confident though."

Despite his dominance as one of the elite shooters in NBA history, Steph admitted that many members of his family were likely cheering for his younger brother. He jokingly added that he was hoping to "pull the upset" against the Trail Blazers guard.

Stephen said he "knows for a fact" that many of his family members will be cheering for Seth to win.

"I hope to pull the upset tonight," Stephen said jokingly, drawing laughter from the assembled media.

The "bet" between the two brothers could be worth up to $200,000.

Seth ultimately finished in eighth place in the first round after scoring 16 points. Steph, on the other hand, won the first round with a whopping 27 points in the first round - tying his personal best from 2015 - but narrowly lost in the final round to Brooklyn Nets star Joe Harris. Steph had 24 points in the round against Harris' 26. The Warriors' star admitted after the contest that he had yet to decide if he would force his brother to pay up on the bet.
