Words cannot describe how weird it was typing that headline.
The Cleveland Cavaliers are heading to the Eastern Conference Finals for the first time since 2009 after blowing the doors off the Chicago Bulls in Game 6. What was a tightly contested bout early turned into a boat-race late, as the Cavs took advantage of a massive Chicago slump, pulling away and prevailing by a score of 94-73.
You’d think in a blowout like that, the true stars of the game would be pretty obvious, but you’d be dead wrong. The hero of the game wasn’t LeBron James, it wasn’t Kyrie Irving, nor was it Tristan Thompson. It was the undrafted backup point guard from Australia.
Matthew Dellavedova ran wild on the Bulls, and as a result, his team is moving on.
