Numbers aren't indicative, but Iguodala helps spark Warriors win over Pelicans

His stats don't reflect his impact, but having Andre Iguodala back in action on Tuesday night helped boost the Warriors to a 104-93 win over the Pelicans at Oracle Arena.

[BOX SCORE]

After missing 12 games with a hamstring injury, Iguodala returned to the starting lineup and recorded two points on an alley-oop and two assists in 17 minutes of restricted floor time.

"I wanted to get him in in five minute bursts," said head coach Mark Jackson.

The swingman's presence gave Golden State another facilitator option thus taking pressure off Stephen Curry while he also defended the 1-4 positions including taking on power forward Ryan Anderson.

Ironically, his game highlight came on a drive when he dribbled behind the back and between the legs before flying to the hoop for a missed dunk that caught a piece of Jason Smith's hand.

It's instantly become known as the "best missed dunk of the year."

"Dre makes life easier for everyone on the floor," Jackson said post-game.
