The Cavaliers were playing the 2nd night of a back to back and their 4th game in 5 days. And they played like it, too. Not a whole lot to say about this one. The Cavaliers, without guards Kyrie Irving and Daniel Gibson, were simply flat from start to finish. Lost in all the gloom and monotony of this game was another great double-double effort from Anderson Varejao who finished with 20 points and 18 rebounds. The Cavaliers also held their opponents to below 50% from the field for the 2nd consecutive game. So, if you want to focus on positives, there were at least a couple nice things to take away from this one. 1 2 3 4 T PHX 19 18 34 20 91 CLE 13 19 27 19 78   Phoenix Starters Pos Min FG 3Pt FT +/- Off Reb Ast TO Stl BS BA PF Pts G.
