76ers hold off LeBron, Cavs 132-130 for 13th straight win

76ers hold off LeBron, Cavs 132-130 for 13th straight win

With Gordon Hayward also missing the entire regular season as well as the postseason in all probability, the Celtics' best player is now Al Horford, who can only do so much as a scorer to keep the Celtics apace with Cleveland in a possible second-round matchup. Kevin Love even spoke postgame about how taking the tough road can be helpful."I always think you try to take the easy way out it's always going to come back and bite you", Love said.

Most of those wins have come at the hands of the Eastern Conference bottom feeders, but on Friday night, the Sixers got a chance to show out against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in a game with major playoff implications. However, the 76ers have been undefeated during that time. The Wizards dominated the third quarter, outscoring the Cavs 36-23.

Knicks 122, Heat 98: Rookie Damyean Dotson had a career-high 30 points and 11 rebounds, reserve Luke Kornet added a career-best 17 points and NY blew out Miami. There is no reason Cleveland's momentum will end any time soon, but they do have their work cut out for themselves.

"I've been coming to Philly for a while", James said. New York, well is New York destined for the lottery again. One of those teams will most likely win the LeBron sweepstakes this off-season, and Steve Gorman strongly believes he should join the 76ers.

The plea is just the latest example of billboards trying to lure LeBron, a trend that Philadelphia 76ers fans started when they put up a billboard in Cleveland. The Celtics stay second.

Pistons 113, Mavericks 106, OT: Reggie Jackson scored 12 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and overtime, and Detroit beat Dallas. In their second loss to Miami at home on Wednesday, they were blasted, 115-86.

Cleveland is a good team. With the athletes Toronto has and the physical defense that is enforced though, they are going to be the most challenging team to face before the NBA Finals.

LeBron's free agency remains one of the hottest topics in the league, but it's hard to see LeBron, at this stage in his career, joining a team like the Knicks, which still seems a ways away from contending.

"We just played our game, didn't let the hype bother us and we stuck together".

Want your voice heard? Cain went on to explain that a lot of people out there discount Kevin Durant's National Basketball Association championship due to the fact he joined the top overall team to achieve that title.

With three games left, the Sixers destiny is in their own hands.
