Warriors vs. Spurs GameThread: Shaun Livingston, Pat McCaw, and Kevon Looney will start for Golden State

The Warriors will face the Spurs tonight at 5:30 p.m. PST without the aid of their All-Stars.

You think you had something to complain about before the Golden State Warriors made losing two in a row a thing again?

Well, wait till you get a load of life without an All-Star!

With the Warriors resting their core guys tonight against the San Antonio Spurs, we'll get to see a once-in-a-lifetime starting lineup instead.

For those who don't like this approach to mass resting of players, Tom Haberstroh of ESPN put together a really detailed article outlining coach Steve Kerr's reasoning. The whole article is worth reading but I felt this tweet gives you a really good summary for TL;DR internet consumers:

If nothing else, it's just good to know that this kind of problem is on the league's radar and commissioner Adam Silver seems more sympathetic to the issue than the previous David Stern regime (which, you might recall, fined the Spurs for doing something similar years ago, as described in Haberstroh's article).
