Matthew Dellavedova Hits Andre Iguodala Down Under In NBA Finals Game 1

That has to hurt.

Matthew Dellavedova fouled Andre Iguodala in the closing seconds of the third quarter in Thursday’s NBA Finals Game 1 between the Cleveland Cavaliers and Golden State Warriors, but instead of making a play on the basketball, the Cleveland Cavaliers guard hit Iguodala below the belt.

We’ll let you decide if that was intentional or not, but it was enough to cause a near scuffle.

Dellavedova was assessed a common foul and no technicals were called on the play.

Cleveland took a brief lead in the third quarter, but the Warriors ultimately ran away with a 104-89 Game 1 victory.
