Suns Coach Calls Out Matthew Dellavedova On Late Game Play…When He Wasn’t Even In The Game

The Cleveland Cavaliers were able to end their two-game losing skid last night against the Phoenix Suns, thanks to their hot shooting and some late-game heroics from Kyrie Irving. It was a tight game in the final two minutes, and it really could have gone either way, especially depending on how this play turned out:

With under a minute remaining and the Cavs up 96-95, Brandon knight came off of a Tyson Chandler screen and hit an open three that seemed to give Phoenix a two point lead. But Chandler was whistled for an offensive foul, a moving screen, and the shot was ruled no good, allowing the Cavs to keep their lead.

Kyrie Irving came down and hit the dagger three pointer after that, and the rest is history.

After the game, Suns’ coach Jeff Hornacek spoke about that play, and, according to ESPN’s Dave McMenamin, even accused Cleveland’s own Matthew Dellavedova for helping to force the official to call the offensive foul. The only problem is, that Delly wasn’t in the game and wasn’t even near the official that called the play.

The play looked like a clear offensive foul and Chandler walked towards Shumpert and cleared him out of Knight’s way.

The Cavs finish their four game road trip and play their final game of 2015 tonight in Denver before taking three days off and returning back home to face Orlando on Saturday, January 2nd.
