OAKLAND -- Already down 0-2 and needing to win four of the next five games to capture the 2018 NBA title, the Cleveland Cavaliers got some not so pleasant news heading into Game 3 when the Golden State Warriors announced that Andre Iguodala has been elevated to "questionable."
Iguodala has missed the last two weeks with a left leg contusion following a knee-to-knee collision with James Harden of the Houston Rockets in the Western Conference Finals. Being ruled "questionable" means there is a 50-50 chance a player plays, "Doubtful" means a 75 percent chance of playing while "probable" is a virtual certainty.
Without Iguodala, LeBron James has scored 51 points in Game 1 and 29 in Game 2. James has converted 29 of 52 field goals and 5-of-11 threes. LeBron also has a combined 17 rebounds, 21 assists and 10 turnovers in the two games at the Oracle Arena, both Warriors wins.
In Games 1 and 2 in these Finals LeBron has shot 55.7 percent from the field and 45.4 percent from long distance. But according to an ESPN stat, when Iguodala is guarding LeBron, his shooting average dips to 45 percent.
With his speed and quickness, the 6-foot-6 Iguodala can neutralize LeBron. Iggy is a 13-year veteran, an All-Star, a two-time NBA champion and former NBA Finals MVP.
