PHOENIX – LeBron James leads the Cavs to a much needed win on this six game road trip, as the Cavs defeat the Phoenix Suns 129- 107 . LeBron and the Cavs got out to a red hot start in the 1st quarter as they lead 23-8. LeBron James recorded his 14th Triple –double of the season. LeBron played 33 minutes, scoring 28 points, 11 assists, and 13 rebounds.
Coach Ty Lue decided to make a lineup change for tonight’s game against the Suns. Kyle Korver was named a starter, while JR Smith came off the bench for the Cavs. This may have sparked something with JR as he played 22 minutes, scoring 14 points going 2-4 from behind the arch. The one stat they do not have on JR was his hustle and his defense, which made the biggest difference for the Cavs tonight. Kyle Korver made the most of his opportunity getting the start, as he played 22 minutes, scoring 22 points going 5-6 from behind the 3-point line.
Larry Nance Jr. had to leave the game 1 minute into the 3rd quarter with tightness in his right hamstring.
Ante Zizic was a nice piece coming off the bench as well for the Cleveland Cavaliers. Zizic played 15 minutes, shooting 5-5 scoring 11 points, and adding 4 rebounds.
The Cleveland Cavaliers play again this Thursday March 15 from Portland, taking on the hottest team in the NBA the Trailblazers.
