It wasn’t Draymond Green in the middle of this conversation for a change. Although he had his own controversy (we’ll get to that in another post).
But we shouldn’t be surprised it was the Cavaliers’ Matthew Dellavedova.
Late in the third quarter Andre Iguodala was bringing the ball up in transition when Dellavedova hit him square in the, er, groin. considering how far he was away from connecting it’s hard to say he was making a play on the basketball, but the refs let this go with a common foul.
It’s what we’ve come to expect from Delly, the play was at least reckless — or you can call it dirty, if you want.
Either way, Iguodala hit a three after play resumed and the Warriors soon started a 15-0 run that decided the game.
