Markieff Morris scored a career-high 35 points to lead the Suns.

P.J. Tucker had 10 points for Phoenix and made two key plays that led to four straight free throws down the stretch to help them hang on for the win.

The Cavaliers had hoped James' -return would make for a quick reversal of fortunes. They lost seven of the eight games he missed during the longest stretch on the sidelines of his career.

James admitted before the game that he might have taken more time off if his team had been winning, and said it was hard to endure watching the Cavs lose as he was idle.

"It's the most difficult thing I've ever been through," James said. "I hated the fact we were playing some pretty -decent ball when I went out and we've just dropped a lot of games when I was out."

James said the team Comprar Nike Air Max Blancas , which got off to a slow start as it adjusted to the return of the superstar to his first NBA club after four seasons in Miami, just needed to stay focused on the details that had them improving -before his injury absence.

"We've just got to continue to work the habits and things we've built over the season," James said. "We've played some really good basketball, we've played some not good basketball.

"Obviously of late we haven't played really good basketball so hopefully we get back to it."

James made 11 of 18 shots from the field, including three of his eight three-point attempts. He made eight of 13 free throws, pulled down seven rebounds and handed out five assists.

It is early winter, and the sound in the air is an incessant whirring of sewing machines.

"At busy times of the year, hundreds of workers are at those machines about eight hours a day," says Meng Hongjian.

This day Comprar Nike Air Max 2018 Hombre , about 100 women are sitting behind rows of sewing machines. Meng, general manager of Jining Yicheng Glove Co Ltd, points out that winter is a slack season for the glove makers.

The factory, in Dazhanglou, Jiaxiang county, Shandong province Comprar Nike Air Max 2018 Mujer , is one of 11 such factories that Meng, who has been making and selling sports gloves for more than 20 years, runs.

The company says it turns out 2.2 million pairs a year, ranking it second among the county's 227 glove-making companies in terms of production.

The county produced gloves worth 3 billion yuan ($494 million) last year, 27.5 percent higher than six years earlier.
