Steph Curry wakes up his son after getting hyped from Damion Lee's clutch performance

Damion Lee and Steph Curry

Many fans were tuned in to the Phoenix Suns-Dallas Mavericks thriller on Wednesday. Steph Curry was clearly one of them, as evidenced by his recent social media activity.

The Golden State Warriors star posted a video of himself shouting out former teammate Damion Lee, who currently plays for the Suns. Curry kept yelling, "Stick with it!" which has become his mantra whenever he has a bad game or experiences shooting struggles. Unfortunately, his celebration roused his youngest child from sleep.

"I'm sorry, Canon is crying," Curry said. "I woke him up."

Clutch performance

Lee's offensive outburst on Wednesday helped capped off the Suns' come-from-behind victory in their season opener. Down by as much as 22 in the game, Phoenix rallied in the second half to steal the win.

The former Warriors wing came through clutch in the fourth quarter, hitting three 3-pointers and a ridiculous contested 10-foot jumper that gave Phoenix the win.

Mavs star Luka Doncic had a chance to win it for his team, but his 3-point attempt over Lee was short.

Curry-Lee connection

Before signing with the Suns this offseason, Lee repped the Golden State uniform for four seasons. He played a key role off the bench in the team's title run in the 2021-22 campaign.

That's not where the Curry and Lee connection ends, though. The University of Louisville product is married to Curry's younger sister, Sydel Curry-Lee. The couple has a son, Daxon Wardell-Xavier Lee, who shares a name with his uncle, Wardell Stephen Curry II.
