The street saying goes that the king stay the king. But that doesn't seem to be the case this evening as the reigning NBA Power Ranking Champions of Week 1 got slapped around by the Golden State Warriors on their home hardwood.
Former Sixer Andre Iguodala is leading the way and drained a ridiculous six three pointers IN THE FIRST HALF. He made six three pointers in a single game only once in his eight years spent in Philadelphia. He went on to set a career high for threes made in a single game in the second half. Go figure.
After looking like he'd for sure set a career scoring high, Iguodala went on to finish the game with 32 points on 7-11 shooting from beyond the arc with 3 boards, 3 assists, and 3 steals. The game being out of hand in the third quarter got him a seat on the bench instead of a career scoring high. His Warriors won by a cool 20 points. It was not as close as the score indicated.
But it was the alley oop from behind half court from Steph Curry to Dre that was worth the highlight reel. And how about the NBA being on top of their Instagram game? Nicely done, NBA digital content producers.

And check out the sick behind-the-back pass Dre pulled off. That's impressive.
