Dellavedova has played a key role in the series so far, limiting the league MVP in the opening three games with his swarming defence and ability to keep Curry out of rhythm.
While fatigue may be starting to set in, Curry had a better game on Thursday night in the 103-82 win to level the series at 2-2 and so the Australian may well be waning slightly under the pressure.
However, Klay Thompson’s father has never been worried about the situation as ultimately he believes that the Cavs star was never going to be able to stop Curry for an entire series.
Mychal Thompson on Matthew Dellavedova: "He's trying his little heart out, but come on. It's a joke to think he can stop Steph Curry."

Dellavedova must be credited for having a real impact on the series for the first three games, but after suffering from severe cramps after Game 3, he looked less sharp on Thursday which allowed Curry more freedom.
There were several plays on which the Warriors point guard was able to blow past him and get to the basket, and if that trend continue for the rest of the series then it could be a quick end for Cleveland.
The MVP finished the game with 22 points along with two rebounds and six assists. Although he may not be firing on all cylinders just yet, it is a dangerous time for the Cavs if they continue to allow him to find him rhythm.
