Who is this guy.
The D-League knows him well and now the Cleveland Cavaliers will never forget him.
Early this Friday morning, Gaines, who starred in the D-League for the Idaho Stampede, hit a game-winning 3-pointer for the Utah Jazz to beat the Cavs, 97-96, at the Delta Center in Salt Lake City.
It’s things like this that give the D-League the legitimacy it needs to stay afloat.
Whenever a guy gets an NBA call up like Gaines did, it means he can play, but when he delivers in an NBA game particularly against a title contender like the Cavaliers, it means much more.
