International man of intrigue Matthew Dellavedova dropped 20 points in the Cleveland Cavaliers’ Game 3 victory last night, etching his name into lore a bit more forcefully.

In addition to the offensive explosion, the Australian shut down Stephen Curry (kinda) and dove for every loose ball like a starved dog finding a tuna can.

It turns out Dellavedova hustled so hard that he had to be rushed to the hospital in order to save his gritty little soul.

“Cavaliers guard Matthew Dellavedova experienced severe cramping tonight following Game 3 of the NBA Finals in Cleveland,” the team said in a statement. “He underwent a treatment process, including an IV, that prevented him from being available for media following the game. He will continue receiving treatment tonight at the Cleveland Clinic and his status will be updated tomorrow afternoon.”

I’d kill to see the EKG printout of this guy. Probably broke the damn machine with all that heart.

J.R. Smith, on the other hand, was able to go right home and do J.R. Smith things without hinderance.
