Notebook: Cavaliers 110, Suns 101


Mike Tulumello, for NBA.com
Posted Thu Mar 13, 2014 1:56 AM - Updated Thu Mar 13, 2014 1:56 AM

THE FACT: The Suns had allowed 50 percent shooting in seven straight games, a virtually unheard of lack of defensive prowess. The unenviable streak was snapped Wednesday when they allowed 47 percent shooting.

THE LEAD: Everybody shoots, and everybody scores against the Suns these days.

The Cleveland Cavaliers were the latest to put up lots of offensive stats against the Suns as they rolled to an easy 110-101 win in Arizona.

By winning, the Cavs (25-40) moved to 3.5 games within Atlanta for the No. 8 spot in the East. They also spoiled the return from injury of Suns guard Eric Bledsoe.

Kyrie Irving led the Cavs, who snapped a four-game losing streak, with 23 points, nine boards and six assists. Spencer Hawes had 19 points and six boards, while Luol Deng had 18 points and nine rebounds.

The Suns (36-28) have lost seven of their last 10. They fell two games behind Nos. 7 and 8 Memphis and Dallas, both winners Wednesday night.

Bledsoe had missed the 33 games with a knee injury. He struggled through a 5-for-16 shooting performance and ended up with 15 points and nine assists in 32 minutes off the bench.

Goran Dragic led the Suns with 20 points. Bledsoe's return didn't help Gerald Green, who had been sizzling (he had averaged 26.4 points in the Suns' first five games in March). In this one, Green went 4-for-14 for eight points.

The Cavs led wire-to-wire. They jumped to a 37-22 lead late in the first quarter and settled for a 60-47 margin at halftime.

Even when the Suns got closer, they simply couldn't get the necessary stops. The Suns drew within 79-77 late in the final seconds of the third quarter. But the Cavs raced the ball upcourt and Dion Waiters pulled up to nail a nearly 30-footer to beat the buzzer. That propelled the Cavs to a 10-0 run and an 89-77 lead.

Irving hit a pair of 3-pointers to protect the lead, and the Suns never seriously challenged.

QUOTABLE: "They looked like the team that was trying to get into the playoffs. We looked like the team that just wanted to play a basketball game."
-- Suns coach Jeff Hornacek

THE STAT: This was the first time this season that Irving at least tied for the team high in points (23), rebounds (nine) and assists (six).

TURNING POINT: When the NBA suspended P.J. Tucker, their best (and some would say only) defender. Tucker was suspended for one game by the NBA for elbowing Blake Griffin after Griffin took Tucker to the floor in the Suns' loss Monday night at the Clippers. Hornacek was displeased with the ruling: "It's unfortunate when you get taken down and you are trying to protect yourself, and you get suspended."

QUOTABLE II: "We had to make sure we had three guys back at all times."
-- Dion Waiters on stopping the Suns' fast break. The Cavs actually had more fast-break points (17-13) than the Suns, who average an NBA-best 19.0 fast-break points per game

QUOTABLE III: "For me, it's just about setting the pace. That's the best way I can do it ... just getting the rebound and pushing it in transition."
-- Kyrie Irving

QUOATABLE IV: "We get a big lead against them, and they always find a way to come back and beat us."
-- Dion Waiters, indicating the Cavs had no problem with overconfidence when they ran up an early 15-points lead over the Suns. The Cavs had blown a 20-point lead and lost to the Suns 99-90 on Jan. 26 in Cleveland. They also blew a 26-point lead and lost to the Suns last season.

QUOTABLE V: "I don't know if they are pressing to think they have to do better than normal to stay getting minutes or whatever. You just have to play the game and play with confidence."
-- Jeff Hornacek on his players adjusting to Bledsoe's return

HOT: The Cavs hit seven of their first nine 3-pointers to get off to a big lead. They ended up 12-for-24.

NOT: The Suns shot only 10-for-36 (28 percent) from long range.

ROOKIE WATCH: The Cavs' Matthew Dellavedova had a nice 10-minute stint with seven points and three rebounds.

FANTASY SPOTLIGHT: Suns forward Marcus Morris has scored in double figures in seven straight. He had 14 points vs. the Cavs.

NOTABLE: Despite their recent four-game losing streak, the Cavs have gone 9-7 in their last 16...The Cavs also are 5-2 in their last seven vs. Western teams...The Suns play eight of their next nine vs. Eastern teams.

UP NEXT: For the Cavaliers, Friday @ Golden State, Sunday @ L.A. Clippers and Tuesday vs. Miami. For the Suns, Friday @ Boston, Sunday @ Toronto and Monday @ Brooklyn.
