Video: Warriors' Andre Iguodala drops Matthew Dellavedova with crossover

Friday February 27th, 2015

To say that Andre Iguodala made Matthew Dellavedova stumble would be a serious understatement. 

With a little more than nine minutes remaining in the second quarter of the Warriors' 110-99 road loss to the Cavaliers on Thursday, Iguodala pushed the ball up the court in transition after David Lee collected a defensive rebound. As he approached the three-point line, Iguodala uncorked a left-to-right crossover so vicious that it caused Dellavedova ​to fall flat on his stomach. Replays showed Dellavedova, a second-year guard out of Australia, ​grasping at air as he careened to the court.

Iguodala then calmly finished the sequence with a behind-the-back pass to Lee for a right-handed layup. 

The pretty highlight wasn't enough to overcome a game-high 42 points, 11 rebounds and five assists from LeBron James. Kyrie Irving added 24 points and three rebounds for the Cavaliers in the win.

David Lee led the Warriors with a team-high 19 points and four rebounds. Stephen Curry added 18 points and six assists in the loss. Iguodala finished with nine points, five rebounds and five assists.

Cleveland improved to 37-22. Golden State fell to 44-11.
