  • Lebron James

Philadelphia 76ers rookie Ben Simmons wasn't having any of that LeBron James hype against the Cleveland Cavaliers Friday evening in Philly.

Through 40 appearances this season, Wall is averaging 19.2 points, 3.6 rebounds and 9.5 assists in 34.3 minutes per game.

Both Simmons and James put up triple-doubles, as Simmons dropped 27 points, 13 assists, and 15 rebounds.

James, who missed a first-half dunk, led Cleveland's second-half comeback to finish the game with 44 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds.

Philadelphia entered Friday night's game just a half game behind Cleveland for the No. 3 seed in the Eastern Conference. JJ Redick hit four 3-pointers and finished with a team-high 28 points for the 76ers, while Marco Belinelli came off the bench to add 23 points on 6 of 12 from beyond the arc. James ran around his teammate and into the paint.

MILWAUKEE (AP) - Allen Crabbe scored 25 points and hit two 3-pointers in the closing minutes of a tight game, and Brooklyn Nets shot 48 percent from behind the arc to beat Milwaukee. Instead, he missed the second and intentionally clanked the third. Redick and Ilyasova each made a pair of free throws in the final nine seconds.

The Sixers, who already clinched their first playoff berth since 2012, won again for the fifth straight game without All-Star center Joel Embiid. Embiid is expected to return in time for the first round, and should not have much difficulty bouncing back from a fractured orbital bone. James shot six free throws in the fourth quarter, two calls coming off drives where there was obvious contact at the rim, plus an intentional foul by the Wizards.

James can opt out of his contract this summer - he has a $35.6 option - with Cleveland and become a free agent. Three billboards, paid for by a Pennsylvania company, popped up recently in OH urging James to sign with the 76ers this summer.

Mourinho: Man Utd still have 'motivation to finish second
Sergio Aguero could return for Manchester City's derby against United if he passes a fitness test on Friday. The £89million man was dropped in February amid a loss of form. "So far our season has been so good".

"We were all excited to be here in Philadelphia and play before an unbelievable crowd in such a big game", Brown said. 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.

Out of the gate, Simmons and his Sixers were seen dominating the Cavaliers in every way possible.

Cavaliers G Rodney Hood left with a sore left Achilles' tendon.

We learned a couple of things on Friday night.

Willie Cauley-Stein had 18 points and eight rebounds and Buddy Hield scored 14 points for the Kings.

"I mean, if we have to deal with him, we have to deal with him", Robert. "What I feel more than anything is there is a genuine excitement and belief that he will be back for us".

Before the game, Brown foreshadowed the events that were about to unfold when he unequivocally declared James to be the greatest player in the history of the sport of basketball.

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