Notebook: Suns 99, Cavaliers 90


Brian Dulik, for NBA.com
Posted Sun Jan 26, 2014 10:41 PM - Updated Sun Jan 26, 2014 10:41 PM

THE FACT: The Suns held the Cavaliers to just six points in the third quarter, Cleveland's lowest total in any quarter since scoring six against the Detroit Pistons on Dec. 26, 2004.

THE LEAD: Power forward Markieff Morris amassed a game-high 27 points and a season-best 15 rebounds off the bench in leading the Phoenix Suns (25-18) to a 99-90 win over the Cleveland Cavaliers (16-28) at Quicken Loans Arena. Power forward Channing Frye scored 16 points for the Suns, while point guard Goran Dragic had 15 points and seven assists. All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving paced the Cavaliers with 24 points and nine assists, while small forward Luol Deng added 18 points and 10 rebounds. Cleveland held a 61-41 advantage with 50.1 seconds left in the first half.

QUOTABLE: "We were so, so bad in the first half, but at least everyone knew how bad we were. When we were down 20, everyone was like, 'We're good.' That's the kind of faith we have in our team, but we can't keep doing this."
-- Suns small forward P.J. Tucker

THE STAT: Six. Phoenix tied its franchise record by holding the Cavaliers to six points in the third quarter on 2-for-22 shooting (9.1 percent). The Suns outscored Cleveland 25-6 in the period with Frye burying three 3-pointers in an 84-second span to start their comeback. The Cavaliers' six points equaled the third-lowest scoring quarter in team history, while their two field goals matched the franchise low. "To hold them to six points in the third quarter, that was amazing," Dragic said. Phoenix outscored the Cavaliers 56-29 in the second half.

TURNING POINT: Deng made a floater in the lane to give the Cavaliers their largest lead at 61-41, but the Suns answered with an incredible 40-9 run spanning the next 15:56. Shooting guard Leandro Barbosa completed the onslaught with a steal-and-score with 8:38 left in the fourth quarter, putting Phoenix ahead 81-70. "Our guys should be embarrassed with the way we played in the second half," Cleveland coach Mike Brown said. "It was hard to watch."

QUOTABLE II: "We came out slow, so we talked at halftime that we had to compete. We were getting embarrassed. Everybody knew it. That's why we said if we were going to lose, we were going to go down fighting."
-- Suns power forward Markieff Morris

HOT: Suns center Miles Plumlee grabbed 10 rebounds -- all defensive -- in 18 minutes. ... Tucker collected 13 points, 10 rebounds, a career-high tying six assists, and two steals. ... Morris shot 8-for-16 from the field, 1-for-2 beyond the arc and 10-for-12 from the foul line in falling one point shy of his career scoring high. ... Cavaliers center Anderson Varejao played in his 513th game, tying Craig Ehlo for the ninth most in team history. ... Cleveland power forward Tristan Thompson rang up 17 points and 13 rebounds for his 22nd double-double of the season.

NOT: The Cavaliers bench was outscored 40-17 and outrebounded 19-7. ... Varejao suffered a bruised left knee in the third quarter when Morris accidentally rolled up on his leg. ... Irving missed 15 of his 23 field goal attempts, including all three 3-point attempts. ... Cleveland's 29 second-half points were a season low. ... Cavaliers rookie power forward Anthony Bennett -- the No. 1 overall pick in the NBA Draft -- dressed but did not play for the sixth time in seven games. ... Suns rookie center Alex Len had one rebound and two fouls in six scoreless minutes off the bench.

QUOTABLE III: "They just outworked us in the second half, simply put. I have to be better, but all around, they just outworked us. It's definitely frustrating. We lost our rhythm offensively, but it has to start on the defensive end."
-- Cavaliers point guard Kyrie Irving

GOOD MOVE: Suns shooting guard Eric Bledsoe remains out after undergoing right knee surgery on Jan. 10, but accompanied the team on its four-game road trip. "We want him to sit behind the bench and talk to our guards," Phoenix coach Jeff Hornacek said. "When he sees something that needs to be addressed, he'll be our point guard/coach and discuss it with them. We know he'll be back before the end of the season, but we don't know when." Bledsoe is averaging 18.0 points in 24 games.

BAD MOVE: Seven current Cavaliers were on their roster on Nov. 9, 2012, when Phoenix rallied from a 26-point deficit for a 107-105 home win. Irving, Thompson, Varejao, center Tyler Zeller, small forward Alonzo Gee, and shooting guards C.J. Miles and Dion Waiters clearly learned nothing from that game. "I honestly didn't think about that tonight because there are only four of us left -- me, Channing, Goran, and Markieff -- from back then," Tucker said. "That is something, though."

NOTABLE: The Cavaliers are 1-3 on their season-long, five-game homestand -- and 5-5 since acquiring Deng from the Bulls in exchange for center Andrew Bynum on Jan. 7. ... Suns rookie shooting guard Archie Goodwin was recalled from his NBA D-League assignment with the Bakersfield Jam, but did not play. ... Cleveland's inactives were rookie shooting guard Carrick Felix and rookie small forward Sergey Karasev, who were recalled from their NBA D-League assignments with the Canton Charge earlier in the day. ... Phoenix did not dress Bledsoe and center Emeka Okafor (herniated neck disc), who has been out all season.

UP NEXT: For the Suns, Monday @ Philadelphia, Wednesday @ Milwaukee, Thursday @ Indiana. For the Cavaliers, Tuesday vs. New Orleans, Thursday @ New York, Saturday @ Houston.
