I leave for a couple days and you guys can't even update my Ricky Davis thread for me?? The guy has been straight cash $$$ ever since I made a thread for him.

Red-hot Ricky Davis scored 28 points off the bench as the Cleveland Cavaliers ended a six-game losing streak with a 101-96 victory over the "casual" Phoenix Suns.

"The name of this game tonight, and I hope you hear it from each guy, is that we were too casual," Suns coach Frank Johnson said. "It certainly starts with me... we just went through the motions and I'll take a certain responsibility for that."

Davis, who shot 12-of-22 from the field, grabbed nine rebounds and handed out three assists. Davis is averaging 26.1 points per game in his last five contests.

"I've been sitting around for three years learning the game and I'm now getting playing time," said Davis.

Johnson likely would agree.

"You take your pick," Johnson said. "All of them guarded him, and it became team defense."

RD and the Cavs have the Magic in Orlando tonight. Tough game because the Magic have a very good home record at 25-11. Let's hope Ricky has a big game and the Cavs pull it out.

Curious Hales, why such a Ricky Davis fan? Did you go to Iowa?

Actually no I didn't...BUT, for the record, Steve Alford is my favorite college basketball coach and I am a huge Hawkeyes fan.

The reason I like Ricky Davis is I always root for the underdog. The NBA is so focused on 4 or 5 players and they forget about everyone else. This kid Davis is 22 years old and has such amazing potential, but you never hear a thing about him.

Pretty much the same reason I started liking Fin, Tim Thomas, Greg Buckner, guys like that....

I think just about every Mav fan roots for the underdog.

The Cavs lost by 4 tonight vs. the Magic but Ricky had 21 points ( 6-9FG, 9-10FT), 5 boards, 3 assists, and 4 steals.

Keep up the good work #31!!
