By Kristofor Molson     Jan 20, 2011 in Sports
Cleveland - The Cavs have been at the bottom of the NBA since LeBron James came to town to face them on December 2, 2010. Tonight was just another loss in a season were the Cavs are trying to put LeBron James behind them.
The Cleveland Cavilers (8-33) had the Phoenix Suns (19-21) come in last night and hand them another loss 106 – 98. Grant Hill, 38, scored 27 points to push the Suns to a four-game winning streak with this performance. Steve Nash assisted with 15 points and 15 assists, and after hitting the 20,000 point mark against New York Knicks Vince Carter only chipped in with 3 points and 8 rebounds.
The Cavaliers have lost 14 in a row and 24 of 25 this season. Antwan Jamison scored 23 point to try and help the Cavs, but with all the injuries they have, it looks like they are just going through the motions. J.J. Hickson scored 16 points and grabs 15 rebounds and guard Ramon Sessions chipped in with 19. The Cavs were down by 17 and got on a row to try and get back into the game being down by only five when Carter hit a key three pointer.
In the fourth quarter the Suns led the Cavs by 13 and got it close 93 – 90 when Jamario Moon hit a key 3-pointer. The Suns turned around and Grant hit a clutch jumper and after a defensive stop Nash came down and hit another basket to push the lead up to seven. The one shoot that Carter hit all night came late in the game, but was a key shoot pushing the Suns up 100 – 92 with under three minutes left in the game.
The big game came for Hill after he had another stats-heavy game against the Knicks the other night scoring 25 and adding 12 rebounds, but the most Hill has scored this season was 30 and that came against the Oklahoma City Thunder. The 15-year NBA vet is averaging 15 points and 5.1 rebounds with 2.4 assist this season.
