However, it wasn't that way early on.

Once the game started, for the first two quarters James wasn't the best player on the court. They scored 78 points in one half, the most ever scored in that amount of time at Wells Fargo Center. Simmons finished the first half with 13 points, 11 rebounds and eight assists. "They've been playing some good ball". When they focused too hard on Simmons, he passed out to a shooter.

The Milwaukee Bucks held on for a 106-102 win on Tuesday night, getting a confidence boost against a short-handed opponent they could face in the first round of the playoffs.

But then, the Cavaliers reminded the city of Philadelphia who the real king is.

The Pelicans led by double digits throughout the entire fourth quarter.

Ben Simmons was impressive for Philadelphia.

The Sixers had them standing and roaring on nearly every possession. Though they couldn't defend the LeBron pick and roll worth a lick, Marco Belinelli's shooting lead them out of their complete scoring slump. Except it was all Ben Simmons and the Sixers. Redick hit key free throws to put the 76ers up by three and, with the game clock winding down, Simmons shocked the King by intentionally fouling him.

For Cleveland, they have been here before and with LeBron James know they can achieve the impossible.

One day after learning Kyrie Irving would need a second left knee procedure and miss the rest of the year, Boston claimed its seventh victory in nine games, beating visiting Chicago. That forced him to intentionally miss the third, and Larry Nance had a tip-in attempt that fell just short. The Cavaliers were playing back-to-back having beaten the Washington Wizards in Cleveland 119-115 Thursday.

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.

PHOENIX - Nikola Mirotic scored a season-high 31 points and tied a season best with 16 rebounds, Anthony Davis had 33 points and 11 boards, and the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Phoenix Suns 122-103 on Friday night.

DeMar DeRozan added 12 points for the Raptors, who shot 42.9 percent.

Simmons poured in 27 points to go with 15 rebounds and 13 assists to record his 12th triple double of the season - fourth before the end of the third quarter - but the Sixers needed every bit of it as James poured in 44 points to go with 11 rebounds and 11 assists.

The Toronto Raptors not only clinched the No.1 seed in the Eastern Conference for the first time in franchise history, they also set a team record for wins (57) with their 92-73 victory against the Indiana Pacers, whose starters scored a combined 18 points (on 8-of-36 shooting). 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.
