OAKLAND, Calif. - Shaun Livingston scored 20 points off the bench to help the Golden State Warriors overcome a rare quiet night from the Splash Brothers in a 104-89 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals on Thursday night.

Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson combined for just 20 points on 8-for-27 shooting. But the Warriors' bench outscored Cleveland's reserves 45-10, including 12 points, seven rebounds and six assists from Andre Iguodala. Leandro Barbosa added 11 points on 5-for-5 shooting.

"We pick each other up," Livingston said. "We believe in each other and we just fight."

LeBron James had 23 points, 12 rebounds and nine assists and Kevin Love added 17 points and 13 rebounds in his Finals debut for the Cavaliers. But Cleveland shot just 38 percent and its 17 turnovers led to 25 points for the Warriors.

Game 2 is on Sunday in Oakland.
