After missing out on Dwight Howard this past summer, the Golden State Warriors made a surprising move in clearing enough cap space to sign Andre Iguodala. The versatile swingman has been a good fit in the Bay so far, doing a little bit of everything to help the Warriors establish themselves as a legit contender.
Last night, the Warriors hosted the Oklahoma City Thunder in a possible playoff preview. The game exceeded its already high expectations and ended in thrilling fashion.
With just 2.3 seconds left to play, the Warriors surrendered a late lead when Russell Westbrook helped cap off a Thunder rally by knocking down a long three-pointer. Down 115-114, Coach Mark Jackson drew up a fake hand-off play for Iguodala off the inbound, which the Thunder were able to deny. Instead, he cut back door, caught a pass from Klay Thompson in the corner and coldly drained a fallaway jumper for the 116-115 victory.
For this exciting game, Iguodala rocked a PE colorway of the Nike Hyperfuse 2012 Low. His 'Home' style is white-based with grey panels, blue branding and yellow on the inner lining and outsole.
