Matthew Dellavedova returned to the Cavs’ lineup Monday night in Brooklyn to take on the Nets, giving the second unit a much needed lift – especially pleasing his coach, David Blatt.
“Shout-out to Matthew Dellavedova,” said the first-year NBA coach. “He helps get the second unit going. Even though he didn’t really score a lot of points, that’s not his role.”
Dellavedova had been rehabbing a sprained left knee since Nov. 4, but returned and finished with 2 points, 3 rebounds and 3 assists,in a 110-88 win. After the game he spoke about his return.
