Andre Iguodala Put On A Performance In Game 4 Of The NBA Finals That We Haven’t Seen From Him In A While

Andre Iguodala showed the entire world what they haven’t seen out of the Golden State Warriors forward in quite some time. He started his first game of the year (regular or post-season) in Game Four of the NBA Finals on Thursday night against the Cleveland Cavaliers, and went off for a season-high 22 points, while playing 39 minutes.

As the Inquisitr previously noted, Andre was inserted into the starting lineup by Head Coach Steve Kerr in place of disappointing center Andrew Bogut in order to give the Warriors a little more oomph with the team down 2-1 in the best of seven series at that point. Thanks to the finest all-around performance of the season from Iguodala, the Dub’s have now evened the playing field and are prepared to take a 3-2 lead when the series heads back to Golden State on Sunday.

Here’s Andre and his son after the 21-point game four victory.

Through 19 post-season games thus far, Iguodala has averaged 9.4 points per game, 4.3 rebounds, and 3.3 assists in 29.3 minutes. The 2014-15 regular season saw Andre playing in 77 games and averaging 7.8 points, while the assists and rebound numbers remained somewhat identical.

LeBron James had this to say about Iguodala’s breakout game, per ABC7Chicago.

“He’s one of the X factors, and he came to play. He shot the ball extremely well. He hit four 3s. He was in attack. He got a couple dunks in transition early on in the game, which got him going, and he was really good for them.”

Iguodala, 31, played college ball at the University of Arizona, and was once one of basketball’s most high-flying, electric players to watch. Today, it appears he has embraced his supporting role and is eager to earn his first championship ring.

A lot of people may forget that Andre was a member of Team USA’s Olympic gold medal victory in 2012, which by any measure is a sign that an individual has made it in one’s profession. Playing alongside the likes of James, Carmelo Anthony, and Kevin Love on a team handpicked by Jerry Colangelo and Mike Krzyzewski is sure to make an athlete feel like they’ve arrived.

Check out some of Andre’s highlights while playing for the American team.

Here are the top 10 plays of Iguodala’s career, which has seen him don the jerseys of the Philadelphia 76ers, Denver Nuggets, and of course, the Warriors.
