Despite being one of the most basic basketball plays, the pick-and-roll can be extremely effective.

Last season, the Warriors ran the pick-and-roll approximately 20 percent of the time, with a fair amount of success. Iguodala is a very good pick-and-roll ball handler, so look for him to have the ball in his hand, which will free up Curry to plant himself on the three-point line for a pick-and-pop opportunity.

Iggy is also an accomplished passer, averaging 5.4 assists last year. With the Warriors abundance of shooters, Iguodala’s ability to expertly handle and distribute the ball will be on full display.
