Smallthoughts: Rave of the Week…Golden State Warriors Bench

Rave of the week goes to the Golden State Warriors bench in particular … Andre Iguodala, Shaun Livingston and Leandro Barbosa that carried the Warriors to a 104-89 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers. The trio scored 43 combined as opposed to the duo of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson who combined only scored 20 points between them. This doesn’t bode well for the Cavaliers who held the Warriors top two scores in check and yet had the doors blown off them until a run made the score respectable at the end. For Shaun Livingston, this was the game of a lifetime for him he scored 20 points and played well. If Curry and Thompson had a off night and the Cavaliers couldn’t beat them …what happens when Curry and Thompson are on their game and the bench continues to play well??? Exactly! The series will be over real quick.  I have the Warriors winning it all in 7 games so there is still a lot of basketball left to be played but…The Warriors are showing their mettle …
