LeBron's triple-double leads Cavaliers past lowly Suns

Suns' center Alan Williams could make season debut on Tuesday

Suns' center Alan Williams could make season debut on Tuesday

As James' squad heads into their final contest this campaign with the Blazers, Portland will be looking to extend their impressive 10-game win streak when they host the Cavs at the Moda Center.

Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue admitted what the numbers shouted Sunday: the Lakers in general - and power forward Julius Randle in particular- strong-armed their way through the Cavaliers in a 127-113 victory. It was one of the few highlights of a breezy 129-107 Cavs win against the Western Conference bottom-feeder during which LeBron logged his 14th triple-double of the season.

The game was over early.

The Cavs played the night before at Utah and lost, and their plane sat for two hours on the tarmac in Salt Lake City. Their deficit grew to as large as 27. To people who don't follow sports, that might sound like gibberish so I'll give you the simplified version: A triple double means achieving double digits in three different statistical categories in a single game (for example, scoring more than 10 points).


Booker, Warren and Jackson are considered probable for the Cavs after practicing Monday, when the Suns also signed backup point Shaquille Harrison to a multi-year deal as his second 10-day contract was about to expire. "If I come into your building for a Game 1, it will be very challenging".

Love is averaging 17.9 points and 9.4 rebounds per game this season. It was his second triple-double in 10 days and No. 14 this season.

It was not the start the Suns wanted. Much of Cleveland's damage in a 38-point first quarter was done at the foul line, where they went 12-of-15 compared to the Suns' 3-of-3 mark. Cleveland also had 12 steals, a season-high tying nine blocks and scored 21 points off of 18 Phoenix turnovers.

Joe Ingles added 17 points, seven assists and seven rebounds for the Jazz. Phoenix is one of the worst teams in the National Basketball Association this season and has now lost 16 of its past 17. James had a couple of rocket cross-court passes to Korver for 3-pointers in the first half. The Suns immediately called timeout. "His ability to, not just share it, but how he delivers it". "He throws the ball so hard and it's always on time and on target".
