Andre Iguodala’s buzzer-beater lifts Warriors past Thunder

The Golden State Warriors recovered from blowing a 14-point fourth quarter lead to beat the Oklahoma City Thunder 116-115 Thursday night after Andre Iguodala drained a buzzer-beating jumper.

Russell Westbrook made a 29-foot 3-pointer with 2.3 seconds remaining to give the Thunder a 115-114 lead.  Mark Jackson called a timeout, drawing up a play that gave Iguodala an option to pass or shoot.

Iguodala, who had 14 points and nine assists, took the inbound pass from Klay Thompson and hit a turnaround 16-foot fadeaway shot, to send the announced sellout crowd of 19,596 into a frenzy.

“It went from a terrible mood to the best mood you could have, so thank Andre for that,” said Thompson.

Westbrook led the Thunder with 31 points and added five assists and nine rebounds.  Kevin Durant had 20 points, while Serge Ibaka added 27.

Thompson had 27 points for the Warriors, followed by Stephen Curry with 22 and David Lee with 20.
