Delonte West Stays After Practice To Work On His Fouls

CLEVELAND—Upset with his lackluster fouling performance through Game 4 of the NBA conference finals, Cavaliers guard Delonte West stayed after team practice to work on fouling drills Wednesday night. "I still haven't gotten into a good fouling rhythm yet," said West, who joined Anderson Varejao and Dahntay Jones for two extra hours to practice knocking down one another's shooting arms.
