Video: Warriors’ Andre Iguodala drills dagger 3-pointer for Game 2 win

Andre Iguodala, Warriors

Andre Iguodala saved the Golden State Warriors from what could have been an epic Toronto Raptors comeback in Game 2 of the NBA Finals, drilling a late 3-pointer to help the Dubs pull away for good.

With about 13 second remaining and the Warriors up by 2, the team set up a nice play following a scramble that left Iguodala wide open for the brilliant 3-pointer. The Dubs won the game 109-104 to tie the series at 1-1.

Iguodala finished with eight points, eight rebounds and six assists. He also had one block and one steal in a solid performance for the Warriors. Perhaps what’s impressive is that the 35-year-old is doing all of this with an ailing leg.

In the second quarter, after being floored with a screen by Marc Gasol, he went to the locker room to get some medical help. Thankfully for Warriors fans, he bounced back and went on to help the team.

It’s hard to blame the Raptors for leaving him that wide open. After all, Iguodala has never been an excellent outside shooter. But in the play, when it mattered most, Iguodala proved why he’s a critical part of the Warriors’ three championships in the last four years. He’s a Finals MVP for a pretty good reason.
