MEMPHIS, Tenn. -- The defending NBA champion Cavaliers left an average of almost 71 points per game back in Cleveland.The result was their lowest-scoring output of the season and a loss to the Memphis Grizzlies.With stars LeBron James, Kyrie Irving and Kevin Love resting in Ohio, the Grizzlies built an early lead, extended it to 15 in the first half and 25 in the fourth quarter before coasting to a 93-85 victory over the Cavaliers on Wednesday night.Its the NBA and some guys are going to rest and some guys are not, said Memphis guard Troy Daniels, who led the Grizzlies with 20 points.

Tony Allen finished with 16 points, eight rebounds and three steals as Memphis won for the seventh time in eight games.

I know the streak is important, Lue said before the game. Its a great streak to be a part of when youre durable and ready to play every single night.FOCUS ON LeBRONSome fans were disappointed that the Cavaliers left James, Irving and Love at home -- especially because it was Clevelands only trip to Memphis this season. Some paid hundreds of dollars to see James in particular. One youngster held up a sign that read: LeBron. Thanks for ruining my Christmas!Lue understood.You know, guys sit their guys every night, the Cleveland coach said. But when the Cavaliers do it or LeBron does it, its something different.

SALT LAKE CITY -- Rodney Hood had never hit a game-winning shot -- at any level. So when he knocked down a big one Friday night, all he could think to do was give a little shoulder-shimmy.Hood pulled up for a 3-pointer in transition with 0.8 seconds left that gave the Utah Jazz a 103-100 win over Dallas after a furious rally by the Mavericks in the fourth quarter.Its crazy, Hood said.

At the end of the game like that, weve got to get the shot with as little time as possible.Jazz coach Quin Snyder passed on calling a timeout, waving his arms at Hood to push the ball up the floor.

It was awful. We made so many mental mistakes. ... They can shoot, tthats what they do.dddddddddddd If you give them open 3s, theyre going to make them and then theyre going to get even more confident and theyre going to hit tough shots.TIP-INSMavericks: Williams was booed lustily even though he hasnt played for Utah since 2011. ...

I feel like hes turned a corner, being able to do a little bit more.Now the biggest thing, too, is once hes able to start doing things more aggressively and moving, hes going to have to start and stop. Its different than when he was coming back from his thumb. His feet, your lower body, and particularly your big toe, I dont know when youre not using it.RETURN ON INVESTMENTBarnes entered averaging career highs in points (20.4) and rebounds (5.6). Carlisle said he expected Barnes to have a big year when the team signed him away from Golden State during the offseason.Hes taken quantum leaps in the first two months of the season, Carlisle said. When youre third, fourth, fifth option, youre a guy thats living off other great players. He needed to develop a foundation of footwork and a means to create based on his skill set and situations on the court.Hes done a terrific job of scoring and now hes learning how to make plays, penetrate, find guys -- those kinds of things which are essential to a guy being one of those guys.UP NEXTMavericks: Dallas hosts the Sacramento Kings on Sunday before beginning a four-game road trip.Jazz: Utah is on the road Sunday to face a Memphis Grizzlies team that got Mike Conley back from injury Friday.
