Simmons shines as Sixers hang on to top Cavs, 132-130

Lebron James

"There's also some female coaches in the National Football League as well", James said. "But when I turn the corner and get downhill, I don't get the same calls when people put hands on me, or contact with me", Wall said after the game. "In my opinion, he is the best player to have ever played our sport". That's further incentive for the Sixers to win out and avoid a first-round match-up with the Pacers, who have given them fits this year and who feature versatile big man Myles Turner.

PHILADELPHIA (132): Covington 4-8 1-1 11, Saric 1-9 0-0 3, Johnson 3-8 1-1 7, Simmons 12-17 3-5 27, Redick 9-19 6-7 28, Holmes 3-4 0-0 6, Ilyasova 6-12 4-4 17, McConnell 0-1 0-0 0, Fultz 5-8 0-0 10, Belinelli 7-15 3-3 23. In the aftermath of Kyrie Irving's season-ending surgery, it may also mean a second-round matchup with a depleted Celtics unit. Though Brett Brown acknowledged afterwards that, "I'm never feeling that great about giving up a 30-point lead", he also knew that the rally his team endured was the kind of thing that, for the last 15 seasons, most coaches in the National Basketball Association have been powerless to stop. "I got to line it up and shoot it". James played fireman in the second half, not just calming Philadelphia's all-consuming scoreboard blaze, but also mounting a serious comeback bid.

Wall drove the lane but instead of going to the basket, he attempted a twisting pass outside that was stolen by rookie Cedi Osman, who made two free throws to close it out.

"I mean, if she knows what she's doing, we'll love it".

Lue came back to a familiar situation as the Cavs, who have endured injuries for months, were missing point guards Jose Calderon (hamstring) and George Hill (ankle).

Wall cited a lack of whistles for his passivity in driving to the basket, especially on the last play where he turned down a chance to tie with a layup. Friday marks the fourth consecutive game he's been ruled out. Wall lost weight during his recovery, and coach Scott Brooks said that should help the All-Star going forward. "It's good for him".

The Cleveland Cavaliers are 29th in defensive rating, with only the Phoenix Suns having a worse one than them, and those woes on the defensive end have bit them in the rear all season long, suffering blow out after blow out between their impressive performances. "He was a big part of what we did here, a big part of winning the championship and even though he's on another team you still don't want to see anyone go through that", Lue said.
