Matthew Dellavedova has continued his superb NBA form and shared in a moment of American sporting history, providing the assist for LeBron James to become the youngest player to score 25,000 points in the NBA.

James led the way with 22 points, nine rebounds and 11 assists while Dellavedova had 12 points, five rebounds and nine assists.
Rekinding the partnership that was a highlight of the Cavs’ finals campaign last season, Dellavedova turned regular provider for his superstar teammate, with his assists including one spectacular fast break dunk late in the final quarter.
