No Kevin Love? No problem, as the Cavs beat the Suns 118-103.

The Cleveland Cavaliers made easy work of the Phoenix Suns tonight, winning 118-103.

The Cavs hit 19 threes for the game, forced Phoenix to only attempt that many, and posted 29 assists for the game. After the West coast road trip, this was a welcome win to get refocused with four of the next five games coming in Cleveland.

Indiana trailed by 18 at halftime with the Kings shooting 64% and limiting Indiana to just 11 first half rebounds, but even Sacramento going ice cold in the third wasn’t enough to help the Pacers trim more than a point off of that lead in the first eight minutes of the third.
