Phoenix Suns (24-18) at Cleveland Cavaliers (16-27), 6 p.m. (ET)

(SportsNetwork.com) - The Phoenix Suns will kick off a four-game road trip Sunday when they visit the Cleveland Cavaliers at Quicken Loans Arena.

The Suns have lost their last three road games and will also make stops in Philadelphia, Milwaukee and Indiana. The Suns, who are 9-11 away from home, failed to build on a recent win over the Pacers in Friday's 101-95 loss to the Washington Wizards in the finale of a five-game homestand (3-2).

Goran Dragic led Phoenix with 19 points and 11 assists, Channing Frye scored 16 points and Miles Plumlee ended with 14 for the Suns, who committed 21 turnovers for 24 Washington points. The Wizards, though, had 19 miscues for 24 Phoenix points.

"In the end we were not concentrating enough," said Dragic, who is averaging 21.9 points per game in his last 14 contests.

Phoenix and Washington exchanged leads 19 times. The Wizards took control of the game with a 17-4 run in the third quarter and outscored the Suns, 31-19, in the stanza. The Suns would tie the score at 93-93, but the Wizards were able to pull away.

The Suns need to score 100 points because they have a 21-6 record this season when doing so.

Cleveland will continue its five-game homestand Sunday and ended a two-game slide with Friday's 93-78 triumph versus the lowly Bucks.

Anderson Varejao led the Cavs with 16 points, Tristan Thompson posted a double-double with 14 and 10 rebounds and Kyrie Irving added a double-double of his own with 10 points and 10 assists. Dion Waiters netted 13 points, as Cleveland improved to 11-10 at the Q.

"Good performance by our team, especially after the two losses. I thought our guys stepped up," said Cleveland head coach Mike Brown. "We were a little tired tonight but I thought our guys stepped up. We had a lot of very good individual performances that turned into a good team performance."

Luol Deng supplied nine points and five boards for the Cavs, who posted a 52-34 advantage in rebounds, including a 21-8 difference on the offensive glass, and allowed a season-low 78 points. A 17-0 run by the Cavaliers set the tone early on.

The Cavs will close the residency Tuesday versus New Orleans and lost both meetings with Phoenix a season ago. The Suns have won their last three trips to Cleveland.
