CLEVELAND — Coming off LeBron James' 57-point showing, it appeared the Cavaliers had finally gained some momentum. A team that hadn't won since its season opener proved otherwise. Dennis Schroeder scored 28 and the injury-riddled Hawks ended an eight-game losing streak, beating skidding Cleveland 117-115 Sunday. The Hawks hadn't won since beating the Mavericks on Oct. 18 and were missing five players, but the Cavaliers went down to yet another puzzling loss. James, who had 26 points and 13 rebounds, was soaking his feet in a tub of ice water and had ice wraps on both knees and his right elbow after the game. He didn't have an explanation for why there was no carry-over from Friday's 130-122 win over the Wizards. "That's a question I cannot answer," he said. "I was ready to go. A lot of the guys were ready to go." Cavs forward Kevin Love was taken to the hospital after leaving in the third quarter with an illness. The team announced that Love, who had four points and four rebounds in 19 minutes, was treated and released. The Cavs cut a 16-point deficit in the second half to two on James' basket with 21 seconds left. Atlanta's Isaiah Taylor missed two free throws with 12.1 seconds to go, but Channing Frye missed a 3-pointer and Dwyane Wade's tip-in fell off the rim. The Cavaliers have also lost to the Magic, Knicks, Pacers, and Nets during their rocky stretch, which has included three straight defeats at home."It's no secret we're starting games off awful," Wade said after scoring a season-high 25 points as a reserve. "The effort or the focus just wasn't there to start off. … You waste a lot of energy trying to come back from 16-18 down, and it's tough nightly to do this. And we all know this. It's no secret in this locker room."Cleveland trailed 37-28 after the first quarter, making it the seventh time in 10 games that the team was down after one. The Cavs have given up 311 points in the first quarter this season, while scoring 262. "I want one time for the first unit to get on the second unit because we blew a lead," Wade said with a chuckle. "I'm waiting for that day to happen."
