Warriors vs. Sixers GameThread: Shaun Livingston out to rest

The dominant Golden State Warriors will host the tanking Philadelphia 76ers tonight with a big chunk of their bench rotation missing.

In addition to those out due to injuries - Festus Ezeli, Andre Iguodala, and Kevon Looney - the Warriors will be without backup guard Shaun Livingston, who will be out to take a rest.

The only thing that's really surprising about this is that the Warriors aren't sitting a starter in need of rest against a team that has only won three road games all season.

In any case, given that the Warriors needed a last second bucket from Harrison Barnes to win this game last time, it also wouldn't be surprising to see them want to put them away early and send a message that the gap between these two teams is wider than the first outcome suggested.
