LeBron James, Ben Simmons share moment after Sixers' win

LeBron James, Ben Simmons share moment after Sixers' win

In each of their last 3 postseason runs, they've run through the Eastern Conference Playoffs like a Ferrari racing against Toyotas, and have been way ahead of the pack on both ends of the court.

Green finished with 21 points for the Cavs, while Love had 16.

Dominating at the offensive end, the 33-year-old James hit a pair of free throws to cut Washington's lead to 110-106 with 2:40 to go, then fed Green for a dunk that made it a two-point game at the 2:07 mark.

LeBron James is playing in his 15th National Basketball Association season and doing things he had never done before, posting averages of 27.4 points, 8.7 rebounds, 9.1 assists, 1.4 steals and 0.9 blocks on 54% from the floor, 36% from three and 73% from the line. The Wizards are now tied with the Bucks for seventh. During a recent segment of ESPN's First Take, Will Cain said he thinks McCollum is on to something when he suggested Philadelphia as James' landing spot this summer.

New York Knicks guard Damyean Dotson (3.0 ppg) got a month's worth of scoring on Friday, too, going off for 30 points - with 11 rebounds - in a 122-98 win over the Miami Heat.

Behind Wall, Beal and Porter - and helped by some frightful shots by the Cavs - the Wizards went on an 11-0 run to take an 82-76 lead with three minutes left in the third quarter.

James got plenty of help in the comeback, as three other starters and two reserves reached double figures in points.

Pacers 126, Warriors 106: Bojan Bogdanovic had 28 points, Victor Oladipo scored 14 of his 21 points in the second half and playoff-bound in beat Golden State in Indianapolis. It's their first season sweep over the Warriors since 2011-12.

THE tantalising clash between Aussie Ben Simmons and LeBron James lived up to every bit of hype, each recording triple doubles in an National Basketball Association epic.

In addition to featuring a great match-up between two of the league's marquee players, Kevin Durant and Anthony Davis, this is an important game for the Pelicans, who could still miss the playoffs with a slight stumble in the final week. The differential was the same with just under six minutes remaining, giving LeBron and Co. just a 0.5 percent chance of coming out victorious.

Jazz 117, Clippers 95: Donovan Mitchell scored 19 points, Rudy Gobert had 15 point and 10 rebounds and Utah beat Los Angeles for its fourth straight victory in Salt Lake City.

The Clippers were playing for their playoff lives but the Jazz displayed the intensity and urgency from the opening tip and never trailed. They also just signed a new big man to step up [VIDEO] in his place.
