Andre Iguodala gets way up to block a floater from Luke Ridnour (VIDEO)

Mar 10, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

Luke Ridnour thought he knew what was doing on this fast break, pulling up a bit and attempting to shoot a floater high off the glass instead of challenging Andre Iguodala at the rim directly.

It wasn’t a bad idea in theory, but in practice, not so much.

Iguodala times his leap perfectly, and gets way up above the rim to get his fingertips on the ball, igniting the fast break for his team in the other direction.

Denver blew this game open in the second half, and outscored Minnesota 61-39 over the game’s final two periods to come away with the 111-88 victory.

    A. I. is quite a player. I bet Philly wishes he was still there.

      We sure do. We definitely miss him on defense. I’m wishing the Nuggets would’ve gotten Bynum in that deal. Lol. I still think they would’ve made out ok

      I love Dre, but even as a Philly fan, I don’t wish he was on the team. He still might be one of my favorite players, but Evan Turner needed to play in that position and Jrue Holiday would not be having the year he’s having with Dre on the roster. We’re a much better team with Iguodala…. clearly, but we’re in a better position as an organization without him. Had Bynum not gotten that procedure on his knees, we very well could have been a top 3 seed in the east. We now have cap flexibility and we’re no longer stuck in that middle ground.

    Nice blok but was that Gallinari screaming “Where’s the faul man?” after he got blocked? Haha.

    If this guy ever learns to shoot a jump shot, he could be great
