Cleveland Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova experienced severe cramping following Game 3 of the NBA Finals against the Golden State Warriors on Tuesday night and was taken to a local hospital, the team announced late Tuesday night.
Dellavedova was unavailable to speak with the media following the Cavaliers’ 96-91 victory over the Warriors in Game 3, during which the second-year guard scored 20 points, had five rebounds and four assists in 39 minutes.
Cleveland leads the best-of-seven series, two games to one.
Dellavedova is averaging 9.7 points and 3.7 rebounds per game in the series.
The Cavaliers say Dellavedova underwent a treatment process that included receiving intravenous fluids at the arena, and that he will continue to receive treatment Tuesday night at the Cleveland Clinic.
Strange scene: Walking out of Cavs Arena at 1:35 am and I see Matthew Dellavedova get on a stretcher and get taken away in an ambulance.
