Matthew Dellavedova is pushing himself to exhaustion

David Richard-USA TODAY Sports

Matthew Dellavedova scored 20 crucial points in the Cavaliers' Game 3 win over the Golden State Warriors, and at times it appeared that he was giving all that he had to the team. He guarded Steph Curry, flew into picks, flew into the stands, became friends with the floor. Turns out, he basically did give all that he have. After the game, Delly developed what the Cavs are calling severe cramping, ultimately having to be taken to the hospital.

From the Cavs:

Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova experienced severe cramping tonight following Game 3 of the NBA Finals in Cleveland. He underwent a treatment process, including an IV, that prevented him from being available for media following the game. He will continue receiving treatment tonight at the Cleveland Clinic and his status will be updated tomorrow afternoon.

With Kyrie Irving injured, Dellavedova has been indispensable for the Cavs. It's impossible to know if this will affect his Game 4 availability, but at this point you just want to make sure he's safe and healthy. It'd be hard to come up with a better place for him than the Cleveland Clinic.

We'll keep you updated as we learn more.
