Bitter loss for wine and gold
No matter what the players are saying, the Cavaliers' 110-108 loss to the Phoenix Suns was a bitter pill to swallow.
That was evidenced by All-Star forward LeBron James kicking over a garbage can on the way to the locker room. This guy plays with fire, and plays to win. He must have missed three or four layups in this game. Some how, they rolled off the rim.
"We had a good effort," James said, "but at the end of the day it's a loss."
There haven't been many losses since the calendar turned to January. Their last loss was in Atlanta on Jan. 9.
They were playing so well, it was going to take a good effort from the opposition to beat them. That's what it took from the Suns, who made 17 of 33 3-pointers.
