CLEVELAND -- The Phoenix Suns, in the midst of their longest road trip of the season, stumbled Sunday in Philadelphia, but they rebounded in a big way Tuesday. The Suns rolled to a 91-78 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers before 13,687 at Quicken Loans Arena. "It was a grind-it-out kind of game," Suns coach Alvin Gentry said. "These guys (the Cavaliers) have played four games in five nights. Obviously, they were very tired, and we wanted to try to push the tempo."

Phoenix's 104-101 defeat against the 76ers on Sunday kicked off a six-game trip. Cleveland (3-12) lost its fourth game in a row. After staying clo...

Schedule stinks, but Cavs must find a way

CLEVELAND -- The Cavaliers are entering dangerous territory, the kind that can cause a team to lose a grip on the buying public way too soon in a season. That's not a criticism. It's a harsh reality.
