Matthew Dellavedova was praised as the hero of Game 2 for his defense of MVP Stephen Curry, but at the outset of Game 3, Cleveland has been having Andrew Bogut and Draymond Green hit the Australian point guard with screens, and instead of going around them, the former rugby player is trying to go through them.
The result? An upset Delly, who appeared to dive at the knees of Draymond Green after the above screen. The referees missed it, but this will become a story because of Dellavedova’s penchant for … questionable plays this postseason.
There was the leg lock of Taj Gibson that resulted in Gibson kicking Delly and getting ejected. Against Atlanta, Dellavedova threw his body at Al Horford’s legs, which resulted in Horford dropping an elbow on him and getting ejected.
