Lee, in his first game as a Phoenix Suns player, had Curry screaming and cheering him along during the Suns' season opening game against the Dallas Mavericks on Wednesday night.

After the big, bold scream, Curry, 34, excitedly and loudly says, "Come on! Yeah, Dame! Stick with it! Stick With it!" Curry was cheering for his sister, Sydel Curry-Lee's husband, while his wife, Ayesha, sat on the couch pointing to the ceiling reminding him that the kids are upstairs sleeping. "The kids asleep. I don't care. Stick with it!" he screamed. "I'm sorry, Canon's crying. I woke him up. There you go D-Lee."
