No Kevin Durant, no problem.
Andre Iguodala scored 17 points Friday as the Golden State Warriors used a big fourth quarter to beat the Houston Rockets 118-113 in Game 6 and advance to the Western Conference Finals for the fifth straight year.
Iguodala’s 17 points are the most he’s scored in the playoffs. The Arizona product shot 6 for 11 from the field and made five 3s. He also had three assists and five steals.
Here are the highlights:
The Steve Kerr-led Warriors outscored Houston 36-26 in the fourth quarter after trailing by five entering the period.
With Channing Frye retiring, Iguodala is the last Lute Olson-coached player in the NBA. The 35-year-old is averaging 11.3 points, 4.5 rebounds, and 4.1 assists per game in the postseason.
The Warriors will next face the winner of the Nuggets-Trail Blazers series, which is going to a seventh game in Denver.
Durant, battling a calf injury, is scheduled to be re-evaluated next week.
If Andre Iguodala doesn't make the Basketball Hall of Fame after what he's done delivering performance after performance like tonight's, they should just shut the place down. Amazing player.— Carl Steward (@stewardsfolly) May 11, 2019
