CLEVELAND– The Cavs announced early Wednesday morning that Matthew Dellavedova is undergoing treatment at the Cleveland Clinic for severe cramping, following the team’s 96-91 victory over Golden State in Game 3 of the NBA Finals.

The treatment, which included an IV, prevented the Cavaliers guard from taking part in media availability after the game.

The Cavs said Dellavedova will continue to receive treatment at the Clinic and his status will be updated in the afternoon.

Delly finished the game with 20 points, 4 assists and 5 rebounds.  He continues to give the Warriors fit with his play on both ends of the court.

“He’s one of those guys that comes early and leaves late,” said Cavaliers shooting guard, Iman Shumpert.  “He leaves it all on the floor. He dives on the floor every single play it seems like.  He gets cut in the face, gets elbowed, gets scratched and just keeps on fighting.”

“Delly is the most Cleveland-like Australian that I’ve ever met in my life,” said Cavaliers head coach David Blatt.  “If you’re from Cleveland, you know just what I’m talking about.”

Game 4 is Thursday night at Quicken Loans Arena.
