On June 12, 2015, in Sporting News, by Buddy TB

NBACleveland Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova was discharged from the hospital Wednesday after being treated overnight for severe cramping following a win over the Golden State Warriors in Game 3 of the NBA Finals on Tuesday night, Dellavedova turned in another huge performance, playing 38 minutes and scoring 20 points in the Cavaliers 96-91 win, the Cavs now lead the Finals 2-1, with Game 4 on Thursday night in Cleveland, Cavaliers coach David Blatt said Dellavedova and Iman Shumpert (shoulder) will play in Game 4.

Dellavedova experienced severe cramping after the game Tuesday and received an IV in the locker room. He then was taken to the Cleveland Clinic by ambulance, filling in for already injured point guard Kyrie Irving for the past two games, Dellavedova has 29 points, 10 rebounds and five assists, another injured Shumpert suffered a left shoulder contusion in the first quarter after running into a screen set by Warriors forward Draymond Green.

Cleveland is already without point guard Kyrie Irving (knee) and power forward Kevin Love (shoulder) and sidestepped more misfortune when guards Iman Shumpert (shoulder) and Matthew Dellavedova (severe dehydration) had issues in Game 3. Shumpert collided with the screening Green and injured his left shoulder and an MRI exam performed Wednesday displayed the injury was only a bruise, while Dellavedova cramped up so badly after Tuesday’s 20-point performance that he was taken to a hospital via ambulance and spent the night receiving IV treatments, reported injuries on Warriors: – F Draymond Green (Prob-Back), on  Cavaliers: – G Matthew Dellavedova (Prob-Fatigue),  G Iman Shumpert (Prob-Shoulder).

Golden State looks nothing like the squad that recorded 67 regular-season victories and forward Draymond Green criticized his team’s effort and competitiveness on Wednesday’s off-day. “They’re playing like a team that’s desperate and needs something,”, perhaps the biggest positive the Warriors could point to in Game 3 was the play of reserve forward David Lee, who came off the bench to score 11 points in 13 minutes in his first action of the series.
