Sixers-Celtics Game 4: Andre Iguodala closes out the Celtics
Video: Andre Iguodala steps up huge to close out the Celtics in Philadelphia in Game 4.
The first is just poor design by the Celtics. Iguodala is not a primary scorer as mentioned above, but Ray Allen can't be on him in that possession. The Sixers fielded a lineup of Iguodala, Jrue Holiday, Lou Williams, Thaddeus Young, and Lavoy Allen. The Celtics countered with the Big 4 and Avery Bradley. The question is whether you want to go with Allen on Lou Williams with Williams being a dangerous but streaky one-on-one player, on Jrue Holiday who hasn't been a primary option late but has the best pure speed, or Andre Iguodala, who he surrenders far too much size to. As it stands, Iguodala used his size to ceate spacing.
The second one, nothing can be done. That's the only way to beat the Celtics, essentially. Pierce helped middle to cut off the drive, and the kickout was perfect, as was the catch and release. Pierce closes out with great effort, gets right to the edge, Iguodala just knocks it down. Sometimes they fall.
Iguodala has stepped up and delivered two huge wins for the Sixers in these playoffs. He's going to need two more, one on the road, if he wants to earn himself more chances.
