Video: Draymond Green, Andre Iguodala beautifully execute alley-oop play

Andre Iguodala, Draymond Green, Warriors

The Draymond Green-to-Andre Iguodala connection is in full swing in Game 6 of the 2019 NBA Finals.

As the Golden State Warriors settle into their half-court set with 5:26 to go in the first half, shooting guard Klay Thompson gets double-teamed by Toronto Raptors stars Kyle Lowry and Marc Gasol.

Thompson then spots a cutting Green who lobs an alley-oop pass to Iguodala. The latter then throws down the dunk to put the Warriors up by one, 44-43.

Iguodala appeared to sustain an apparent leg injury in Game 1. Fortunately, his MRI “came back clean.” If there were any doubts about the spring in the 35-year-old Iguodala’s legs, he quickly put them to rest with that dunk against the Raptors in Game 6.

It’s now or never for Golden State. They’re in a do-or-die situation at Oracle Arena in Game 6 of the NBA Finals. They need to execute flawlessly in the absence of 2014 NBA MVP Kevin Durant.

For the Raptors’ part, can they close the series out on the road? Of course, it would’ve been better if they won their first NBA title at home. However, that wasn’t the case in Game 5. If they can put the clamps on Thompson, Curry, and the other key Warriors players, they can sing “O, Canada” on the road with conviction once again.
