A quick glance at the stat sheet from Wednesday night's victory over New Orleans and Friday's win over Detroit makes it look as if Andre Iguodala is in a bit of a slump. With just 11 points on 3 for 13 shooting, including four points on four shots on Friday night, even Iguodala will admit his offensive game is a bit off.

But to hear coach Doug Collins explain it, the Sixers would not have won the past two games without Iguodala. Though Iguodala has not buried the shots he's been able to get, he has done more than his share of heavy lifting on defense.

In back-to-back games, Iguodala held down Hornets' top-scorer Eric Gordon and the Pistons' Tayshaun Prince just when the Sixers needed it most. Better yet, Iguodala's defense on Gordon helped spur the team's fourth-quarter run that sewed up the win in New Orleans.
