Stephen and Seth Curry can try, but they may not be able to top the gifts they gave to their mom, Sonya Curry, for Mother's Day on Sunday.

Younger brother Seth graduated from Duke on Sunday, while older brother Stephen helped the Warriors pull even with the Spurs despite playing on a sprained left ankle.

Sonya and Dell Curry attended Seth's graduation on Sunday and watched the Warriors game on TV, according to Yahoo! Sports.

For Mama Curry, she could not have asked for a better day.

"I watched a graduation. Then the Warriors won. My day is complete. Every Mother's Day is wonderful. But this one will stand out because a lot of stuff happened," Sonya Curry told Yahoo! Sports' Marc J. Spears.

Stephen Curry has been plagued by a recurring ankle injury that reared its ugly head in Friday's Game 3 loss at home to the Spurs, and the frustration is mounting for Warriors guard. Of course, his mom has been a phone call or text message away to get her son back in the right frame of mind.

"She's not here, but she's my voice of reason. I tried to vent my frustration because it seems like very time you get on a roll and feel somewhat healthy there's a setback," Stephen Curry said.

Before Game 4 on Sunday, Sonya did her best to lift Stephen up.

"I always look up a [Bible] scripture for him in tough times. This has been tough on him as far as the physical beating. He's hurting. I gave him a scripture saying that you can't do it physically, but spiritually. Trust God to do it. Worry about Sunday when Sunday gets here," Sonya Curry said.
