Love didn't totally agree with James' assessment. "Maybe one look, but it was more so on a swing-swing to [Matthew Dellavedova]," Love said. "I think a guy was closing out on me and I hit Delly and Delly didn't end up shooting it. But, no, I think I had some good looks in the first quarter -- a couple tip-ins that I missed; [Timofey Mozgov] and I both went for the lob, I thought I had my hand on it, and missed that one. But, you know, getting good looks there. Not for lack of confidence, no." ESPN.com

He grabbed one big offensive rebound in the fourth quarter and batted another to teammate Kevin Love. He drew a charge early in the fourth quarter when the Cavs were mounting their surge. “Delly is a guy that’s always been counted out,” LeBron James said. “He can’t make it, can’t do this, can’t shoot enough, not fast enough, not tall enough. One thing about it, heart and effort will take away a lot of the things that you cannot do. I’ll take a guy like that on my team any day.” Akron Beacon Journal

James believes Dellavedova reminds him of a former teammate that helped the Heat win two titles. "I had Norris Cole on my team in Miami," James said. "He was the same type of guy. We called him the pit bull. You just put him out there on anybody and he's always going to be successful and know you can never discredit how he goes about the game and how hard he plays. You put him out there for 20 seconds and it will be the hardest 20 seconds he ever played, like he'll never play again... Everything they do won't show up in the box score but teammates and people that know the game know he made an impact." Cleveland Plain Dealer

He also drew an offensive foul at the start of the big fourth-quarter run. Akron Beacon Journal
