Here’s a great read below…..

 

OAKLAND, Calif. –- Dave DeBusschere of the 1970 New York Knicks, one of the best players on the best team of an inexplicably and historically bad NBA franchise, once said of big games, “When they throw the money down, we’ll be there.” For the historically bad and yet now almost inexplicably successful Cavaliers franchise, when they throw almost anything down, Matthew Dellavedova will be there.

Stu Jackson, now a commentator for TNT, but formerly an NBA coach, as well as the league executive who assessed fines and suspensions for misconduct on the court, said of Dellavedova in this space recently, “If Dellavedova is on the floor … you can’t take him lightly. If any loose change is out there, he’s coming after it.”

Delly might out-earn those old Knicks with today’s NBA salary structure, but the “loose change” comment perfectly describes a player who picks up what’s been carelessly lost or discarded, as he himself almost was. The undrafted, second-year 6-4 guard also perturbed, disturbed and severely curbed NBA Most Valuable Player Steph Curry’s offense, helping limit Curry to a messy 5-for-23 game in a 95-93 overtime Cavaliers’ victory Sunday night over Golden State that tied the NBA Finals, 1-1. It was Dellavedova’s defense that must have bothered Curry on an airball for the potential game-winner in the last seven seconds of overtime.

At money time, Delly is on the floor more than a janitor’s mop. He is reckless, throwing his body over the edge of caution and the borders of restraint, claim disgruntled opponents. Yet his Cavs teammates love him.

So do the Cleveland fans, who appreciate those who have had to scratch and fight and claw to win with hustle and want-to instead of basketball’s time-worn virtues of height and might.

“Obviously, he’s a guy who’s been counted out his whole life,” said LeBron James, who is, of course, precisely the opposite, but who still plays as hard as Delly. “Probably people have been telling him he’s too small, too, he’s not fast enough, can’t handle it good enough, and he’s beat the odds so many times,” James said. When the Cavs stunningly wrested homecourt advantage away from Golden State on Sunday night, Dellavedova, playing 42 minutes because Kyrie Irving is out for the playoffs with a fractured kneecap, scored seven points in the fourth quarter, second-best on the team to James’ 10. He dropped in a 3-pointer and hit two of his odd, push-shot runners. “Dellafloatas,” as WJW sportscaster John Telich called them on Twitter.
But the essence of Delly’s game came in the last minute of the fourth quarter, with the Cavs desperately trying to stave off a furious Warriors comeback. Maybe the Cavs only got to overtime because the Warriors didn’t get enough possessions to put up the game-winning shot.

Delly is on the floor more than a janitor’s mop. And that was because Dellavedova went down and got the loose change. Harrison Barnes had an open 16-foot jump shot in the last 42 seconds, the Warriors trailing, 87-85, but he missed it. Bodies-flying madness erupted under the rim. James knocked the ball loose as he too scrabbled after it. Delly dived, wrestled it away, rolled over to put his body between the ball and the mayhem, and called time.

Nothing came of it but the chance to burn 24 seconds off the clock, but that was big too. Although Delly finished with only nine points, they came in the last quarter and overtime. He calmly made two free throws to put the Cavs ahead to stay, 94-93, with 10 seconds to play in overtime.
On the possession, James made one of his seeing-eye, rocketed passes, finding 3-point specialist James Jones open in the corner. “Usually when JJ (Jones), J.R. (Smith) and Mike Miller shoot, we don’t rebound because most of the time they make them,” said James.

Dellavedova rebounded, though. Guys who live on loose change take nothing for granted.

“Time and situation,” he said. “One (point) down. We would have had to foul if (Jones) didn’t make it, so you don’t want to leave anything to chance.”Barnes fouled Dellavedova in the scrum. “He was very calm,” said James of Delly. An Australian, Dellavedova played collegiately 20 miles from San Francisco at St. Mary’s of Moraga, Calif.

Now he is one of the most booed Cavs in the lion’s den of Oracle Arena because opposing fans can live with James, or the lost Kevin Love and Kyrie Irving, beating them on athleticism and skill, but not on Delly going in among the trees and rooting the ball out.

“That’s a classic situation you practice as a kid, down one, you need to make both free throws. I felt like I’ve been in that situation a million times before,” he said.

Extra possessions meant the Cavs got 10 more rebounds and six more shots than the Warriors. The coin of the realm is loose change, and if it’s rolling around on the floor, so is Dellavedova.
