Philadelphia's Ben Simmons used his Instagram account to show respect to the man widely regarded as the NBA's best player. The win will give them enough momentum coming into the playoffs. James proved there's nothing like the original by registering a more extravagant 44-point (on 17-of-29 shooting), 11-assist and 11-rebound triple-double. The Hawks answered with 12-0 run and were up 99-93 after Prince hit a fade-away jumper in the paint with 54.5 seconds to play. Green later hit a 3-pointer and the Cavaliers got within 85-75. That's not necessarily a knock on Belinelli: that's just how James can make you look.

The contest was played with the intensity of a playoff game. "It's defensive adjustments. It's offensive adjustments". At times, it looked like Marco Belinelli understood this and did not even try: you could nearly see James' tail wagging every time the overmatched swingman picked him up on the perimeter off a screen.

Perhaps the Cavs were worn out from rallying from 17 points down to win Thursday against Washington. Ersan Ilyasova came off the Sixers bench to score 15 points and grab 11 rebounds.

Jaylen Brown scored a career-high 32 points, including a career-best seven 3-pointers, and Greg Monroe had a triple-double with 19 points, 11 rebounds and 10 assists to pace Boston.

Even without MVP candidate Joel Embiid, the Sixers are putting on a clinic and giving pending free agent LeBron one hell of a recruiting pitch. Wall did get to the rim in the dying seconds, but made the freakish decision to kick out instead of going all the way, sealing the Wizards' fate.


This time this matchup won't be in their favor, but Wade just wants the Heat to be playing well when they get to it.

An Embiid-James tandem is tantalizing in Philly. "It started with A.I".

Simmons kicked out to Redick for a 3 from the corner that brought Allen Iverson out of his seat and pumping his fist in celebration. They come out and support.

Actually, there were a lot more than two things that we learned, but the biggest takeaway from the Sixers' 48-minute thrill ride against the Cavaliers is that if it had been a 49-minute thrill ride they would not have won.

"We just weren't ready for the speed, the pace they play at", Cavaliers coach Tyronn Lue said.


Simmons threw a lob pass from half court to Richaun Holmes for a high-flying dunk. A few weeks earlier, the Raptors were up 15 midway through the third quarter and ended up losing by three.

Willie Cauley-Stein had 18 points and eight rebounds and Buddy Hield scored 14 points for the Kings. He bullied his way to the basket or found shooters, such as Kevin Love (17 points) and Jeff Green (30 points), open on the perimeter. He slowly dribbled toward Sixers forward Robert Covington before getting help from a Kyle Korver pick. James missed the second free throw and then misfired on the third on objective.

But the game wasn't decided until James missed 2 of 3 foul shots with 1.9 seconds left.

The NBA stars were among the headline names on the list of 35 players chosen Friday for USA Basketball's national team pool of players for 2018-20.
