With the Cavaliers trailing the Warriors by one and 10 seconds left, James Jones missed a 3-pointer. Six players scrapped in the paint for the rebound.

  • LeBron James (Cleveland): 6-foot-8, 250 pounds
  • Tristan Thompson(Cleveland): 6-foot-9, 238 pounds
  • Draymond Green (Golden State): 6-foot-7, 230 pounds
  • Harrison Barnes (Golden State): 6-foot-8, 225 pounds
  • Andre Iguodala (Golden State): 6-foot-6, 215 pounds
  • Matthew Dellavedova (Cleveland): 6-foot-4, 200 pounds

Who got it? Dellavedova – giving up 2-5 inches and 15-50 pounds – of course. He also drew a foul and hit what would be the game-winning free throws in the Cavaliers’ Game 2 win.

It was the biggest of many key plays by Dellavedova, who started for the injured Kyrie Irving.

Dellavedova shot 3-for-10 and committed six turnovers, but he helped at the right times. When you’re playing with LeBron, that’s enough.
