Ben Simmons leads Sixers over LeBron, Cavs for 13th straight win

Stopping LeBron is going to be tough, but in all likelihood, it'll be Ben Simmons who will be able to guard him throughout the night.

James is entirely focussed on getting to the NBA Finals for an eighth straight year at the moment, meaning contract talks are on hold until he has yet another Championship ring to add to his bulging trophy cabinet, or the Cavs' season ends in disappointment.

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

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

Butler played 22½ minutes and was 7-for-10 from the field in his first game since getting hurt against Houston on February 23.

Wall gets the night off on the second leg of a back-to-back after the Wizards fell to the Cleveland Cavaliers in dramatic fashion on Thursday night.

The Sixers sank 30 of 53 shots in the first half and led by as many as 30 in the second quarter.

According to National Basketball Association reporter Chris Sheridan, who tweeted back in August past year that James would 100 percent be leaving at the end of the season, the number one reason is because of Gilbert's support of the U.S. President.

Simmons finished with another triple-double (27 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists), but veteran guard JJ Redick contributed 28 and fellow sharpshooter Marco Belinelli poured in 23 off the bench.

Elsewhere, LeBron James' excellence is so taken for granted, he rarely gets a mention, but 44 points, 11 rebounds and 11 assists is impossible to ignore.

Kevin Love's return has seen the Cavaliers go 8-1 in their last 9 games.

As for James, he responded by letting Ingraham and the rest of the world know that he wasn't going to stop speaking his mind: "I will not just shut up and dribble... (Allen Iverson), the days in between after A.I. when they weren't that good to now", James said. The Cavs well. they look like a team on the second night of a back to back after coming back from 16 down against the Wizards.

"We just played as a team and played our game; didnt let the hype bother us and stayed together".

In Washington, Taurean Prince scored 23 points, including 10 in the fourth quarter, and Atlanta defeated the hosts.

Cleveland came back again in the fourth quarter.

Love threw the pass with 3.3 seconds left and the Cavs trailing by three, and James caught it on the right wing, where Philly forward Robert Covington was called for a shooting foul on the Cavs' star.

The seeding takes on added importance with both teams chances at making a long postseason run increasing once Boston lost Kyrie Irving for the season. Except it was all Ben Simmons and the Sixers.

The versatile, positionless lineup he went with meant sacrificing minutes for Cavs' big men Nance and Tristan Thompson - something that would be more hard to do if Philadelphia has center Joel Embiid healthy and on the court - but it was effective.
