Marcus Morris played just 10 minutes against the Celtics on Friday with three points, one rebound and one steal.
The Scoop:While he did get the start on Wednesday, Morris had scored in double figures for six games prior to that night. In that seven-game span, he averaged 13.7 points, 4.3 boards, 2.0 assists, 0.7 steals, 0.4 blocks and 1.9 triples on 55.4 percent from the field. His twin bro is a better own and Eric Bledsoe returning does hurt Marcus' value, so he's only on the radar in deep leagues after this dud.
PHOENIX - One of six Cleveland players in double figures, guard Kyrie Irving scored 23 points and added nine rebounds and six assists as the Cavaliers snapped a four-game losing streak with a 110-101 win over the slumping Phoenix Suns Wednesday. Center Spencer Hawes had 17 of his 19 points in the first quarter and forward Luol Deng added 18 for the Cavaliers, who won for just the third time in the last 10 games. Guard Goran Dragic scored 20 points and forward Marcus Morris added 18 points off the bench for the Suns in their third straight loss. Guard Eric Bledsoe had 15 points on 5-for-16 shooting and nine assists in his return after missing 33 games following knee surgery.
