76ers hold off LeBron, Cavs


Simmons had 27 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists and James, one of his mentors, had 44 points (17-of-29 shooting), 11 assists and 11 rebounds, bringing the Cavaliers to the brink of an epic comeback.

The Cleveland Cavaliers have the made the past 3 NBA Finals. We got some playoff experience, but you don't know.

Cedi Osman's steal and two free throws with 2.5 seconds left clinched a stunning fourth-quarter comeback for the Cleveland Cavaliers as they defeated the Washington Wizards by a score of 119-115 at Quicken Loans Arena on Thursday night.

James was a monster on the stat sheet throughout the night in a Cleveland comeback that came up just short, as the three-time National Basketball Association champion had a game-high 44 points on 17-of-29 shooting from the field, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, and two steals. They come out and support.

Knicks guard Damyean Dotson (3.0 ppg) got a month's worth of scoring Friday night, going off for 30 points - with 11 rebounds - in a 122-98 win over the Heat. Trump withdrew his invitation to Curry to visit the White House after the sharpshooting guard said he wasn't going.

In front of Philly legend Allen Iverson, Cleveland was pitiful in the first half, handing the ball over to the Sixers time and time again as Simmons dominated in the open floor with a series of highlight reel plays.

"You add in Villanova, you add in the Eagles, obviously that helps as well", James said. Morris then converted a three-point play, but Cleveland's Kyle Korver knocked down a 3 in front of Washington's bench - from almost the same spot where he missed a big 3 in Game 3 of last year's Finals.

"I got some good sleep, rested well", he said.

In addition to this Trump angle, let's not forget that Cavs owner Dan Gilbert and LeBron James didn't break up well when the veteran forward originally left the Cavaliers as a free agent way back in 2010.

Jeff Green had 33 points and Kevin Love 17 in support of LeBron - who had a game-high eight turnovers - but no other Cav reached double digits.

Cleveland cut the lead to single digits in the third quarter.

Pistons 113, Mavericks 106 (OT) In Detroit, Reggie Jackson had 12 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and overtime and the Pistons beat Dallas.

Redick made a pair of 3-pointers in the final four minutes. He missed a critical free throw against the Brooklyn Nets in October and was forced to intentionally miss the second for Cleveland to have a shot at securing the tie.

The seeding takes on added importance with both teams chances at making a long postseason run increasing once Boston lost Kyrie Irving for the season. And they always kind of do it by committee, and it starts with Ben (Simmons) getting everybody involved.

There may not be any chance of Joel Embiid playing on Friday night, but Dario Saric (elbow cellulitis) still remains questionable, even though the target return was tonight.
