NBA Le Bron James makes more history as the Cleveland Cavaliers narrowly defeat Brooklyn

"He was great this morning", Lue said. "Anytime you can beat a team LeBron James plays on, you must have done something fairly decent".

The Philadelphia 76ers led wire-to-wire in a 108-97 win over the Cavaliers in Cleveland on Thursday, perhaps the flawless sales pitch if they want to attract LeBron James to Pennsylvania next season.

This is expected to generate more rumors that James could have a strong interest in signing with the Sixers this summer.

James wondered why he was asked about being in Philadelphia, and was told there were reports that he was spotted there. The large signs, which were paid for by a Pennsylvania company, are meant to entice James to leave home and join a Sixers team brimming with young talent and potential.

A three-pointer by Korver with 2:25 to go got the Cavaliers back within one before Saric again came through at a critical time, burying a three-pointer of his own to push the 76ers' advantage back to four at 98-94 with 2:09 to go. However, the Sixers showed poise down the stretch by scoring the next eight points to seal an impressive win. Clarkson was ejected but that didn't stop players from jawing at each other. James looked up and saw the replay before shooting his foul shot.

Social media users slammed it as "repugnant" and "absolutely cringeworthy". "I'm going with winning". The PM responded that her baby was due on 17 June.

James' denial aside, media and fans have connected the James-to-Philly theory mainly because he shares the same agent (Rich Paul) with rookie 76ers star Ben Simmons, with LeBron publicly complimenting Simmons and All-Star centre Joel Embiid on numerous occasions.

A season-high 29 points from ex-Cav Isaiah Thomas helped the Los Angeles Lakers to a 131-113 win over the Miami Heat. They now lead IN by just two games.

Bogdan Bogdanovic scored 23 points and De'Aaron Fox added 21 to lead host Sacramento to a win over Brooklyn.

The Portland Trail Blazers, meanwhile, had to much firepower for the Minnesota Timberwolves, easing to a 108-99 victory. The move was confirmed by Brewer's agent, Happy Walters, on Thursday.
