Ben Simmons changes LeBron's life with a nasty dunk

Ben Simmons' Philadelphia 76ers have edged a fast-finishing Cleveland 132-130 for their 13th-straight National Basketball Association win, with the stars of today and tomorrow staging a stunning triple-double showdown.

Ben Simmons delivered a triple-double of 27 points, 15 rebounds and 13 assists as the Sixers earned their 13th consecutive victory, 132-130 over the Cavs.

Once the game started, for the first two quarters James wasn't the best player on the court.

It really was a sight to behold. Philadelphia took at 41-28 lead after the first quarter, and then a 78-55 lead at the half. The team then extended that to almost 30 points in the second stanza.

He played a vital role in the win at Dallas in October, totaling 23 points, eight assists, seven rebounds and three steals against just one turnover while making ten of 15 shots. Most of those wins have come at the hands of the Eastern Conference bottom feeders, but on Friday night, the Sixers got a chance to show out against LeBron James and the Cleveland Cavaliers in a game with major playoff implications.

With the victory, the 76ers (49-30) move past the Cavs (49-31) into third place in the Eastern Conference.

He scored 44 points and had 11 assists and 11 rebounds in the win.

James suddenly remembered in the second half he needed to audition his stuff for his potential summer suitor.

Guardiola: It's a pity it was a special day for United
Guardiola continued to stress that you have to take your chances at this level, adding: "Football is boxes at that level". However, what happened at Anfield on Wednesday would have given the Catalan coach food for thought.

He scored 21 points in the third and hit successive 3-pointers in the fourth that helped pull Cleveland to 111-109.

James started yapping at the refs, the crowd howled as he complained, and the arena felt like a Game 7. After missing 68 games, Fultz has slowly found himself more involved in the offense and is looking comfortable running the second unit when Simmons is on the bench.

"It says, 'LeBron, we don't want you.' We don't want you, we don't need you". This would have been considered a successful season if the Sixers just made the postseason, but that's no longer the case.

The Sixers, who already clinched their first playoff berth since 2012, won for the fifth straight game without Embiid.

It has been thought that Philly could be a destination for LeBron James in free agency. After suffering an orbital fracture, Embiid would be cleared by an independent neurologist.

76ers: The 78 points were the most the Sixers had scored in any half since they had 80 on February 11, 1992, vs. Miami. Fans booed whenever he touched the ball. Everybody is curious to see if they can somehow make a fourth straight finals appearance.

Philadelphia left that game with the third seed in the East, a huge accomplishment. "They've been playing so much without him that they still just keep the momentum going". "You don't want to hang your hat on saying, 'We can come back from deficits like that.' You want to play well".
