You might think Andre Iguodala's recent play is a product of the Warriors forward finally getting healthy.
And while that might be the case, there's apparently something else behind the 2015 NBA Finals MVP's reinvigorated play: golf.
Yes, you read that right.
After dropping 11 points in the Warriors' 112-89 win over the Indiana Pacers at Oracle Arena on Thursday night, Iguodala explained that his second favorite sport fuels his play on the hardwood.
"I'm almost there," Iguodala told NBC Sports Bay Area's Kerith Burke. "So, I had it and I kind of lost it. It was raining a little bit and the suns back out. If I get on the golf course, my basketball game is a direct reflection of how many rounds of golf I can get. So, the more rounds of golf the better I play."
Sounds like Steve Kerr needs to get Iguodala some more time on the links as the playoffs approach. Or, at least find a Top Golf, whatever works.

So, if Iguodala starts dicing up the Rockets, Thunder or whoever else when the postseason rolls around, someone should cue up the Masters' theme song and ask him what he shot on the team's latest off day.
At least. that's what we would do.
Staples Center held a beautiful tribute ceremony for Kobe Bryant and his daughter Gianna in Los Angeles on Monday, bringing luminaries from around the basketball world to pay tribute to one of the sport’s most iconic stars.
Among the current NBA players in attendance was Warriors star Klay Thompson, a Southern California native who grew up idolizing the Lakers and Kobe.
Klay paid homage to Bryant on Tuesday through social media, sharing several of his favorite photos with the five-time NBA champion.

Walnut Creek native Sabrina Ionescu gave a moving speech at the memorial Monday morning, then flew back to Palo Alto and helped her Oregon Ducks defeat the Stanford Cardinal, making some fitting history along the way.
As Warriors fans prepare for the reintroduction of Steph Curry, Steve Kerr's group is preparing to face the red-hot Kings.
The Kings exited the All-Star break needing to rack up the Ws to get back in the playoff picture. After wins over the Memphis Grizzlies and Los Angeles Clippers, the Kings are starting to believe they can make a run at the eighth and final spot in the Western Conference.
The Warriors will look to blunt their momentum Tuesday night at Chase Center. With Curry reportedly set to return Sunday, the Dubs would love to start getting on a bit of a roll before Curry laces them back up.
