Default Poor showing against Suns

As I'm sure all of you are, I was pretty disappointed with their performance against Nash and gang. Nash picked them apart. Cleveland obviously doesn't know how to play against a run and gun team. They were incredibly flat footed in the transition and allowed countless layups/dunks.

What I also dislike about their play, and this happens a lot, is their reliance on simple outside shooting. Anyone can shoot from the outside, it takes a real *team* to move without the ball, pass and develop plays. So often, you see them just sort of standing around on offense. It's easy to criticize here in my comfy couch but what is so hard about moving without the ball like a Suns or Spurs team??? It seems like all of the Cavs kinda stand around waiting for LeBron to make a move.

The team can't survive with LeBron going 1 on 1. Of course they need a point guard which would help a lot but just executing their plays and moving would help immensely too.
