Andre Iguodala Absolutely Destroyed His Former Team Yesterday

The 76ers were feeling pretty good about themselves coming into last night's game against the Warriors. Philly was undefeated after being picked to finish with the worst record in the league this year (which, of course, is still a possibility -- they have 78 games to go now). But they didn't run into the Warriors, or their own ceiling, so much as they ran into Andre Iguodala.
Pick a metric, any metric: Iguodala destroyed it. He was 11-18 from the field; 7-11 from deep; he scored 32 points; he grabbed three steals, rebounds and assists apiece; he blew up the highlight reel with two of the best plays so far this season. He was, in a word, awesome.
If you're more of a visual learner, check out the dime of the year right here, a behind-the-back jump-pass to David Lee from the three point line:
There was also this 70-foot alley-oop, via Steph Curry:
And here's the same dunk at 120 frames per second -- meaning, it's gorgeous:
The Warriors went on to win 110-90, bringing the Sixers back down to Earth. Not sure if any sort of "payback" was on Iguodala's mind after playing in Philly for eight years, but it's always nice to come home again... and dominate.
