In addition, they've gone 5-0 against the spread over their last five games at home. The Cavaliers can also clinch their seventh Central Division title with a win and an Indiana Pacers loss (plays at Toronto tonight). On Thursday, the Cavs overcame a 17-point deficit with just 7 minutes, 35 seconds remaining in a 119-115 victory over the visiting Washington Wizards. "We came back last night and came back today", James said.

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. James is just the second player in franchise history to record 50 double-doubles in a single season, joining Brad Daugherty (53 in 1990-91).

The Australian rookie finished with 27 points, 15 rebounds, 13 assists and four steals. Since returning to the lineup on March 19 (nine games), Love is shooting.451 (23-51) from three-point range.

The anticipation leading up to Friday nights matchup between the Cavaliers and the Sixers was high and deservedly so.

Dwane Casey's group has been eliminated by the Cavs in each of the past two seasons-losing in six games during the 2016 East final and getting swept in the conference semifinals in 2017-and for much of this season it looked like the only way they'd meet in the playoffs this year would be in the conference finals. The third quarter Cavaliers flipped a defensive switch that ignited their perimeter D, while they suffocated Ben Simmons in the paint and midrange.

DeMar DeRozan added 12 points for the Raptors, who shot 42.9 percent. Except it was all Ben Simmons and the Sixers. Luke Kornet came off the bench to add a career-best 17 points as NY left Miami just a half-game ahead of Milwaukee for sixth in the East.

There are not many nights during any National Basketball Association regular season when you feel as though you are experiencing a playoff game, be it the atmosphere on the court, in the stands, along the sidelines. absolutely everywhere.

Tonight, the Wine & Gold will face the Philadelphia 76ers for the fourth time in 2017-18.

"They knew we were coming on a back-to-back and I am sure their emphasis was to get up and down and [test] our legs, and it took us quite a bit of time to get in the game". In that 22-point win, Cleveland held Philadelphia to just 3-28 (.107) shooting from beyond the arc, which was the lowest three-point percentage allowed by the Cavs in a single game since February 20, 2015 (.063, 1-16). Ersan Ilyasova came off the Sixers bench to score 15 points and grab 11 rebounds. Dedmon had 12 points and 14 rebounds, and John Collins also had a double-double with 10 points and 10 rebounds for Atlanta.

The Cavs are 11-1 against the Sixers over the previous 12 meetings and have won five consecutive contests at Wells Fargo Center.
