Sixers Beat Cavs, Take Over 3-seed in the East

Now, the word of a single reporter isn't exactly the same as a direct quote from the horse's mouth, but Sheridan called James" return to Cleveland "48 hours before anyone else" back in 2014, and pretty much predicted James' famous "Decision' in 2010 to go to Miami - so the man's sources tend to be on point. All of that seems like an excellent recipe for a historic win that would give them half-a-game leeway over the Cavs. His mentor, LeBron James, was a force as well, with 44 points, 11 boards, and 11 dimes himself, but it was Simmons and his squad that emerged with the upper hand. And this winning streak has been desperately needed, too, because the Philadelphia 76ers are on some kind of tear, having won 12 games in a row to tie Cleveland for the No. 3 seed in the east.

Bucks, Heat, and Wizards will all be struggling to reach a more favorable position by the end of the season, but the primary focus of the public will expectedly be on a two-team jam higher up in the standings. James could only split the pair to make it 117-115, but with the Wizards out of timeouts, Wall drove and threw the ball away.

The Australian rookie finished with 27 points, 15 rebounds, 13 assists and four steals.

The Sixers led by as many as 30 points in the first half, and held an astounding 78-55 margin at the break.

Nuggets 100, Timberwolves 96: Jamal Murray had 22 points to lead six Denver players in double figures, Nikola Jokic wrapped things up with a late tip-in and the Nuggets beat Minnesota in Denver.

Chris Sheridan, formerly of ESPN and the Associated Press and who now writers for NJ.com, explained in a story posted Thursday why James will leave Cleveland again in free agency this summer. Cleveland hosts the Washington Wizards in what could be a first round matchup. The Cavs would then be destined to face the Boston Celtics in the second round. In fact, you can make an argument that he owns those teams.

Cleveland outscored Washington 24-3 on 3-pointers and saw frontcourt starters James, Green and Love combine for 42 points in the opening half, but eight turnovers cost the Cavs 15 points. "I think it goes back to the approach of being pros, understanding what's at stake in terms of home court advantage". Out West, we are witnessing an unparalleled deadlock with six teams separated by just two games and only three certain postseason participants. Clashes against cellar dwellers Dallas and Atlanta should be wins, setting up a must-watch clash with the current Eastern Conference seventhh-seed Milwaukee.
