Stephen Curry Nails Late Jumper to Lift Golden State Warriors; Andre Iguodala's Return Unknown

Either Andre Iguodala found the game more interesting or he was choosing his words wisely. Either way, his interview with ESPN’s Israel Gutierrez during their NBA telecast produced very little information. His eyes wondered, he stuttered and hesitated, and he barely even looked at Gutierrez. It was almost like he was bouncing around the question and didn’t want to answer. That might be an indication that his recovery from a hamstring injury is not going according to plan.

And that might be bad news for the Golden State Warriors, but thanks to Stephen Curry they had something to celebrate about bay-side.

The Dallas Mavericks had the game won Wednesday night, but a four-point play from Curry and a three pointer from Draymond Green all in less than a minute gave the Warriors the late lead. Monta Ellis was able to tie the game at 93 after hitting one of two free throws, but Curry delivered the dagger over Shawn Marion with 1.5 seconds left to give Golden State a 95-93 victory.

Iguodala’s interview was hard to watch has he struggled to create sentences, but I don’t think the Warriors will be seeing him soon. It was diagnosed that he would miss 2-4 weeks, but he has already missed 10 games and he didn’t seem confident in his interview. I’d hate to think that Iggy would be out any longer because I want to see what this team can do when they are 100 percent. Right now they are missing something on both ends of the court, and that something is Iguodala.

I really hope Iguodala was distracted, bored or groggy in that awful interview. If his attitude and answers were any type of hint, we won’t be seeing him in action for a few more weeks.
