Liggins got the start again for Cleveland in a classic vs. Golden State and although he didn’t score, he more than held his own guarding Steph Curry. Liggins held one of the most prolific scorers in the league to only 15 points off 4-11 shooting.

ICYMI, here’s Kyrie Irving’s unbelievable shot to give the Cavs the dramatic win:

Randle returned to the lineup following the birth of his first child, Kyden. Randle admitted to reporters that he was exhausted, but still managed to put up 13 points, 7 rebounds, and a whopping 8 assists in the Lakers’ win over the Clippers.

Here’s Randle talking about being a new dad, which is pretty adorable:

    Good job by Liggins….nice to see a former cat on a decent team.

      The announcers were giving him tons of praise, in a game that featured LeBron, Curry, Durant, etc…

      It’s good to see a defensive stopper being appreciated, especially in a league that typically doesn’t value defense…..at least until the playoffs.

    Wish Humphries could play more like E. Kanter and Steven Adams. That kid has to get meaner.
