Game Story

CLEVELAND (Ticker) -- Not even the return of Jeff McInnis could snap the Cleveland Cavaliers out of their funk. A wincing McInnis did not score from the field and his teammates weren't much better as the Cavaliers suffered their third straight loss, a 103-86 setback to the Phoenix Suns. The Cavaliers had been 17-8 since the acquisition of McInnis, a point guard who has steadied the offense with his ability to score and distribute. However, he had missed the last two games with a painful bruised shoulder. McInnis returned Tuesday but clearly was not himself. He wore a protective shirt beneath his jersey, but that could not cover the pain, which was evident nearly every time he shot as he went 0-of-7 from the field. "Offensively I couldn't get a rhythm," McInnis said. "I'm kind of frustrated (by the injury). I had a good groove." "We were as high as can be, but one little injury caused us to get out of kilter," Cleveland coach Paul Silas said. "But there are no excuses. We just have to get it done." Cleveland fell behind 10-2 in the opening minutes, 34-24 after one period and 60-41 at halftime. In the first half, the Cavaliers shot just 31 percent (13-of-42) and committed 10 turnovers while allowing Phoenix to shoot a blistering 63 percent (26-of-41). "They shot the hell out of the ball," Silas said. "But we didn't contest shots." Joe Johnson thoroughly outplayed rookie sensation LeBron James, matching a career high with 31 points on 14-of-23 shooting. James scored 25 points but just one in the first quarter, admitting the team was not focused at the outset. "This three-game losing slide scares nobody," James maintained. Cavaliers' rookie sensation LeBron James scored just one point in the first quarter, but finished with 25. "This three-game losing slide scares nobody," said James, admitting his team wasn't focused at the start. Cleveland's slide has come on the heels of a seven-game winning streak. The Cavaliers (31-39), who have not made the postseason since 1998, are just one-half game ahead of Boston for the final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. On Friday, Cleveland begins a stretch of four games in five nights. "We'll see what this team is about in the next three or four games," Silas said. "We're fighting for something that is very special." Injury was added to insult as Cleveland center Zydrunas Ilgauskas suffered a broken nose early in the third quarter and did not return. The Cavaliers cut the deficit to seven points early in the fourth quarter, but Johnson and Shawn Marion had baskets before Casey Jacobsen drilled a 3-pointer to double the lead to 90-76 with 7:36 to go. Amare Stoudemire had 21 points and 11 rebounds and Marion added 20 and nine for the Suns (24-47), who came in with the worst record in the West. "You never know with a young team, but in the last two games, we just seemed to play more under control and we slowed it down a little bit and we made good plays," Suns coach Mike D'Antoni said.
