Larry slumping - again?

Cavs blog by Bob Finnan

One jokester suggested that the Cavaliers should have traded guard Larry Hughes right after his 36-point game last week.

He's back in another shooting slump. Those who follow the Cavs realize that's not shocking. In his last three games, he's shooting 22 percent from the field (8 of 36).

In the double-overtime win over Milwaukee on Monday, Coach Mike Brown did something that took some courage: He sat Hughes in the later stages of the game. He played Devin Brown, who responded with some rugged play and good production.

I like everything about Devin's game until he shoots the ball. He's not a strong shooter, but he does everything else pretty well. I want to see more of him, and Coach Brown said he'll play in the next game.

This team has too many guards right now. GM Danny Ferry needs to thin out the roster a bit with a trade.
