Sixers Jump Out Early, Hold Off Cavs Late

Cleveland Cavaliers' Le Bron James dunks against Philadelphia 76ers' Dario Saric from Croatia in the first half of an NBA basketball game Thursday Sixers Jump Out Early, Hold Off Cavs Late

Cleveland.com reports that after the formal media session, James labeled the report "disgusting".

The Sixers didn't dominate at any point, but they were never truly threatened until late by the Cavaliers - who fell behind by eight points in the first quarter and couldn't get over the hump the rest of the way.

The Cleveland Cavaliers will not have J.R. Smith for a nationally televised game against Philadelphia Thursday night - Smith has been suspended by the team for one game.

For now, The King and his Cavaliers will have to take that L for another 35 days until both of these teams meet again.

"Looked like we had some heavy legs tonight", James said. We still had a chance to win. "We fought back but it's been a tough stretch for us playing every other day the last four weeks". Give credit where credit is due.




"Young King" Ben Simmons finished with 18 points, nine rebounds and eight assists on Thursday, also tallying a block and two steals while shooting 8-for-14 from the floor. Six 76ers scored in double digits, including all five starters and certified sixth man Marco Belinelli, with Robert Covington and Joel Embiid recording double-doubles.

J.R. Smith is averaging his lowest scoring figure since his second season in the National Basketball Association.

Philadelphia didn't have the game in hand until the final minute of the contest. As a member of the Denver Nugets, Smith served a 10-game ban for his role in a brawl in 2006. Thompson did lead the Cavaliers with 11 rebounds - his third straight game grabbing double-digit boards.

With this game now in the rearview, the LeBron James-less 76ers will return to the Wells Fargo Center to face off against Kemba Walker and Charlotte Hornets, as the owners of a 33-27 record. "It was a lot of fun to watch that, see him do his thing".
