With the Cavaliers mired in a two-game losing streak, dropping their record to just 6-6 since February’s trade deadline, Cleveland coach Tyronn Lue decided to shake up his team again by bringing JR Smith off the bench against the Suns on Tuesday and starting Kyle Korver in his place.

Korver will be replaced in the starting lineup by Rodney Hood whenever Hood’s sore lower back feels well enough to play. Hood went through shootaround Tuesday but was ruled out of the game. “I just felt like it,” Lue said when asked about the timing of his decision to bench Smith.
