Stephen Curry replacement Shaun Livingston helps Warriors not miss a beat

OAKLAND -- Whether he has been asked to provide 15-20 minutes of stability off the bench or step in for the best, flashiest basketball player on the planet, Shaun Livingston's demeanor hasn't seemed to waver.He's the same self-assured, buttoned-down, laconic Livingston. The breakdown by game was 1-2-1-1-1.Such a sustained efficient performance was Livingston personified, all performed with a stoic, decidedly unflashy stealth that almost makes him the anti-Steph.

Sports Shaun Livingston's excellence for Warriors softened loss of Andre Iguodala

He has been the primary stabilizer of the second unit as well as a key defender and role player with the starting group when the Warriors go small.Like Iguodala, Livingston's significance isn't always reflected statistically. "Now it should be every day, locking in, building habits, so once we come to the playoffs, it's not like we have a long way to go. It'll be let's turn it on, let's turn it up."For more on the Warriors, see the Inside the Warriors blog at www.ibabuzz.com/warriors.
