CLEVELAND - The Cleveland Cavaliers took a moment before their playoff game against the Detroit Pistons to honor a local 11-year-old girl.

Last month, Allison Allen sent a letter to Canton officer Ryan Davis to tell him how sorry she was about the passing of his K-9 partner Jethro. She also donated her allowance to buy a new bulletproof vest for officer Davis' new K-9.

The Cavaliers honored Allison as their first ever 'Cavaliers DIFF maker' for her compassion and generosity. She was given a customized Cavaliers jersey as well.

The Cavaliers also made a donation to charity in honor of Allison.

Canton K-9 Jethro was shot three times while officers investigated a robbery at a grocery store in January. He died the next day.

Officer Davis now has a new partner. Tuko began his training last month.
