Andre Iguodala turned back the clock Thursday night as the Golden State Warriors took on the Cleveland Cavaliers in Game 1 of the NBA Finals.
Nerves played a big role in the first quarter Thursday, but both teams started loosening up midway through the opening stanza. Right before the first timeout of the contest, Iguodala took a Klay Thompson pass and slammed it home over Kyrie Irving, who tried to steal the ball on the way up.
After the slam, Iggy pointed right at Irving and then stared him down.
