Livingston shines in Curry's absence as Warriors roll to seventh straight win

Kevin Durant Steph Curry

The Golden State Warriors had two-way signee Quinn Cook in practice, who can fill in for Curry if he is to sit out during the last home game of the week tonight, according to Anthony Slater of The Athletic.

As noted above, Curry was initially listed as questionable for the game but, despite an off day between games on Sunday, caution ruled the day in electing to give the All-Star the night off in favor of Shaun Livingston.

Livingston will be making his first start of the season and is in line for his most minutes in a game so far.

The Warriors (10-3) are looking at playing without one of their superstars for the second time in the past week as Stephen Curry (thigh bruise) figures to miss the Magic.

Without Curry, shots that seemingly come easily within the flow of the Warriors' offense were more hard to find, and rather unsurprisingly, Golden State relied on several backdoor cuts and a handful of Kevin Durant isolation plays to pace the team in the first half. And Golden State outscored Orlando, 32-19, in the period to take an 88-75 lead to the fourth.

Nikola Vucevic had 20 points to lead the Magic (8-6) who have lost two in a row.

Ultimately, even without Curry to open up the Warriors' offense, Golden State had all the star power it needed to collect another blowout victory.
