The Cleveland Cavaliers made a change in the starting line up and it seemed to work well for one game at least, as the Cavaliers defeat the Phoenix Suns in blowout fashion, 129-107. It wasn’t even that close as the Cavs led by 30 at some point during the game.
It was the type of blowout win the Cavs needed and especially since they were able to rest LeBron James most of the fourth quarter.
The Cavs shot 49.4 percent from the field and 48.6 percent from three point range.
The Cavs had seven players score in double figures.
James led the way, notching another triple double as he had 28 points, 13 rebounds, 11 assists, three steals and two blocks. Jordan Clarkson had 23 points, two steals and one assist. Kyle Korver had 22 points, making five three’s. He also had four rebounds and one assist. JR Smith, who came off the bench had 14 points, five rebounds, one assist and one steal. Ante Zizic and Jeff Green both had 11 points and four rebounds each and Zizic also had a block. George Hill also had 10 points, three rebounds, two assists and two steals.
Larry Nance Jr. left early due to a hamstring issue, but it was for precautionary reasons.
Nance, incidentally, had his right leg wrapped this morning prior to shootaround https://t.co/AjOJK16wEt
