LeBron James throws down jam, stares down Sixers

Game 81 Mavs at Sixers

Butler missed 17 games with the knee injury he suffered on February 23 against the Houston Rockets.

James started yapping at the refs, the crowd howled as he complained, and the arena felt like a Game 7.

For the game, Cleveland shot 42-77 (.545) from the field (11-15 FG in the fourth) and 13-27 (.481) from beyond the arc, and dished out 26 assists. Heading into the half, the 76ers were up by 23 points.

Cleveland Cavaliers forward LeBron James and Philadelphia 76ers guard Ben Simmons have so much in common. Barnes hit seven 3-pointers and scored 25 points in the first game between the teams, lifting his career average against Philadelphia to 10.8 points in ten matchups.

The playoffs came early this year in an epic Eastern Conference thriller between the Philadelphia 76ers and the Cleveland Cavaliers. He went to the foul line to shoot three foul shots after being fouled on a 3-point attempt.

James had 44 points, 11 rebounds, 11 assists, two steals, and one block to pace the Cavs. Jeff Green scored 33 points and Kevin Love added 17 for Cleveland. James could have tied the game with 1.9 seconds left. Ersan Ilyasova came off the Sixers bench to score 15 points and grab 11 rebounds. It was Monroe's second career triple-double and his first since November 7, 2012, with the Detroit Pistons. "I mean, I think so".

The Sixers have three games remaining while the Cavs have two in the battle for second seed, after the Toronto Raptors clinched top seed with a 92-73 rout of the Indiana Pacers. James ran around his teammate and into the paint.

Prince then set up Dewayne Dedmon for a sealing dunk. James made the first, missed the second, and purposely missed and watched in frustration as Nance's tip missed.

Anthony Davis, Nikola Mirotic and Jrue Holiday each had double-doubles as New Orleans strengthened its playoff position with an easy victory against battered host Phoenix.

The Pelicans (45-34) tied Oklahoma City and San Antonio for the fifth-best record in the Western Conference.

"They knew we were coming on a back-to-back and I am sure their emphasis was to get up and down and [test] our legs, and it took us quite a bit of time to get in the game". And while they are on a 12-game winning streak, Joel Embiid is still out indefinitely.

Last night's win was the largest fourth-quarter deficit the Wine & Gold have overcome since November 14, 2014 (trailed by 19 in 4th Q at BOS). Point guard Reggie Jackson is coming off a 29-point performance in Brooklyn.
