Cavs fall to Bucks as Matthew Dellavedova impresses in first game back

Just four days after being traded by the Milwaukee Bucks, Matthew Dellavedova was doing his best to beat them as he suited up for the Cleveland Cavaliers in his first game back with the team.

With the crowd amped to have one of their favourites back in the wine and gold, Delly came off the bench in the first quarter, getting on the board shortly after with a signature Delly Trey.

In his 15 minutes on court, Dellavedova tallied 11 points, on 4-of-7 shooting, four assists and two rebounds, bringing his trademark hustle and playmaking back to Ohio.

Without Giannis Antetokounmpo, who was rested with a sore neck, the Bucks still proved too good, running away with the 108-92 victory.

Eric Bledsoe led the way with 20 points, 12 rebounds and five assists, while Khris Middleton added 16 points and Brook Lopez and Sterling Brown 12 each. Malcolm Brogdon continued his recent good form, finishing with 18 points, five rebounds and five assists.
