The Stat Line Of The Night – 04/19/09 – Andre Iguodala
Total Pro Sports – This was a shocker when I seen the scoreboard, I did a double take to make sure I was seeing this correctly. The Philadelphia 76ers took on the Orlando Magic on Sunday, in what should have been a wash for the Magic the Sixers came in and stole home court advantage, winning that game 100-98.
The player of the game was Philadelphia 76ers forward/guard Andre Iguodala who poured in 20 points, 8 rebounds, 8 assists and hit the last second shot to win the game for the Sixers. Ultimately making him “The Stat Line Of The Night” for Sunday April 19th, 2009.
Andre Iguodala waited for the clock to tick down, took a few dribbles to his right and let go a high-arching jumper. Swish! The Magic were stunned, their fans silenced.
For the Philadelphia 76ers, it was the sweet sound of stealing home-court advantage.
Iguodala made a 22-foot jumper with 2.2 seconds remaining, and the Sixers rallied from an 18-point deficit to beat Orlando 100-98 in Game 1 of their opening-round playoff series Sunday.
He then stood at halfcourt waving his hands as teammates joined him to celebrate.
“We won one more game than people thought we would win,” Iguodala said. “I was pretty amped up.”
