Coaches praise Delly

A SUPERB final quarter from Matthew Dellavedova wasn't enough to get the Cleveland Cavaliers over the line against Toronto.

Dellavedova scored eight of his 10 points in the final quarter as the Cavs went down 99-93 to the Raptors.

Dellavedova added three rebounds and two assists in his 28 minutes on court.

 “I thought a lot of our guys at different points of the game played well. I thought Delly (Matthew Dellavedova) gave us a lift off the bench,'' Cleveland coach Mike Brown said.

Toronto coach Dwane Casey lauded Dellavedova for his defence.

 “I’ll tell you what – he (Dellavedova) was all over us.  He was a one-man press,” Casey said.

The Cavs face Kevin Durant and the Oklahoma City Thunder on Thursday (AEDT) before hosting the Utah Jazz on Sunday (AEDT).
