Steph Curry may be the MVP, but Shaun Livingston is the one who brought the Warriors to victory in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
The Warriors defeated LeBron James and the Cavaliers 104-89, and standout veteran, Shaun Livingston had much to do with the victory. He scored a total of 20 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists in the 27 minutes he had on the court.
The playoff game is a personal best for Livingston, and the victory couldn’t have come at a better time.
“Just really proud of the way everybody contributed,” Steph Curry said. “You don’t win championships without the entire squad coming in and making an impact on games, and the way obviously Shaun came in was so composed, got to his spots, had that confidence to know them down.”
An unlikely superstar had a lot to say about Livingston as well. “Obviously, the game ball goes to Shaun Livingston,” LeBron James said. “He gave them a huge spark.”
