The Cleveland Cavaliers are in a state of flux, which is a state that the Phoenix Suns simply wish they were in at this point in their rebuild.
While the Cavs are enduring an identity crisis following the firing of David Blatt, the Suns have become a complete dumpster fire.
These are two teams on the opposite ends of the competitive spectrum, and that should be on display when these two face off head to head in Cleveland this week.
The Phoenix Suns are a dumpster fire. I wish there was a nicer way to put it, but how else do you describe a team that has fired two assistant coaches, refuses to trade a problem child forward and is missing its best player because of a major knee surgery.
On top of all that, the promise that was once making this group one of the darlings of the NBA has since vanished, and there’s little reason to believe this team stands much of a chance against any competitive group this season.
Against Cleveland, Phoenix enters…how would you say…not exactly on a roll. Entering its most recent game — a Jan. 26 contest against the lowly Philadelphia 76ers — the team had lost six in a row. Before that, it won a showdown against the Charlotte Hornets, and before that it dropped nine in a row (11 of 12).
Stopping LeBron James is obviously the No. 1 goal in this one, but more realistically, the team from the desert must look to stop everyone else. Kevin Love’s role has been a talking point so far this season, so keeping him on the perimeter and taking low-percentage shots will be important if the Suns stand a chance .
The Cavaliers, like the Suns, are in flux. The difference, of course, is that the Cavs’ flux may keep them from winning a championship, while the Suns’ flux may keep them from ever winning another basketball game again.
That hyperbolic hot take is a bit extreme, but it sums up the state of these two teams nicely. When it comes to the Cavaliers, this group is coming off new head coach Tyronn Lue’s first victory, but it was hardly a convincing effort.
The team won 114-107 against the lowly Minnesota Timberwolves.
Against Phoenix, a win comes down to simply executing and taking care of the basketball. The Suns should do their part when it comes to turning the ball over, and as long as the Cavaliers don’t do the same, this one should be an easy contest for the home team.

Give this one to the home team. And not just because it’s the home team — because the Cavaliers are on a completely different level than the Suns.
LeBron and crew are set to take care of business in this one.
