INDEPENDENCE, Ohio -- Rodney Hood has had two games of fewer than 10 points since joining the Cavaliers.

They are the only two games Cleveland's lost out of its five with Hood.

"We definitely have to get him more touches," coach Tyronn Lue said Monday. "Also at times when he has the ball he has to be aggressive. I think right now he's in between, not sure. But we need him to be aggressive and score the basketball."

Cleveland Cavaliers Scribbles: What Kevin Love can mean to team

CLEVELAND, Ohio -- Scribbles in my Cleveland Cavaliers notebook:

1. "Accurate but not true." That's a phrase I learned from the late Ron Grinker, a legendary NBA agent in the early days of the league. Accurate but not true applies to the comments made by LeBron James about the officials.

2. Here's the accurate: James is absolutely right when he complained about only going to the foul line four times in Sunday's 110-94 loss to San Antonio. James often is fouled and it's not called partly because he is so strong. It's as if the officials don't think those shoves and bumps should bother him. But they do impact his shots. He deserved more trips to the foul line in that game and several others.

3. "But not true." The applies to the final verdict. The Cavs didn't lose because of the officials. They lost because of the other four starters (besides James) scored only 14 points. They shot 5-of-28 from the field, zip-for-10 on 3-point shots. Even a road weary Spurs team with some key injuries can beat the Cavs when that happens. - CLICK HERE to read full story.
