Tuesday’s Player of the Day- 4/30/2013 (NBA)

Denver’s back was against the wall and it looked like it was going to be eliminated by Stephen Curry and the red-hot Golden State Warriors. This player stepped up to make that not happen.

Andre Iguodala, Denver Nuggets

25 points, 12 rebounds, 7 assists, 2 steals, and 1 block

Maybe the stat line alone doesn’t blow you away (it should), but there was more to the eye when it came to Nuggets forward Andre Iguodala’s performance in the 107-100 Game 5 win. Iguodala compiled this near triple-double while only turning the ball over twice. Better yet, the game was decided by seven points, but the Nuggets outscored the Warriors by 17 points when he was on the floor. He also shot 59 percent from the floor, 64 percent from within the arc (7-of-11). I hope you follow me now. The Nuggets will need more of this from Iguodala, mixed in with great efforts from Kenneth Faried and others on the team, to win the next two games in a row and stave off elimination.
