It added up to a thrilling 119-115 victory for Cleveland on Thursday night at Quicken Loans Arena, giving the Cavs 10 wins in their last 11 games and putting them a half-game ahead of Philadelphia in the race for the third seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs. James received help from Jeff Green (33 points) and Kevin Love (17 points and nine rebounds), but it wasn't enough despite the Sixers blowing a 30-point lead. That gave them half a game lead over the Sixers, and a win tonight will nearly certainly cement their place as the number three seed.

Bucks, Heat, and Wizards will all be struggling to reach a more favorable position by the end of the season, but the primary focus of the public will expectedly be on a two-team jam higher up in the standings. While Wizards guard Tomas Satoransky would prefer to avoid LeBron and the Cavs in any case, they might not be able to.

It's worth noting that Cleveland has really turned it on in Lue's absence, losing just one game out of their last 10.

First, he missed a 23-foot bomb while holding a one-point lead.

Although the Cavaliers committed four turnovers, they made up the difference by outrebounding the Wizards, 12-6, and held a 16-8 edge in points in the paint and an 8-3 advantage in fast-break scoring in the fourth quarter.

Rockets 96, Trail Blazers 94: Chris Paul hit an off-balance layup with 0.8 seconds left to lift Houston past Portland in Houston.

Cleveland recovered to take a 76-71 advantage before Washington went on a 19-4 surge to take a 10-point lead on a dunk by Kelly Oubre Jr. with 1:07 left.

James Harden, who finished with 24 points, missed two free throws with 13.3 seconds left before Pat Connaughton tied it with a short basket. The Cavs would then be destined to face the Boston Celtics in the second round.

Markieff Morris had another understated yet productive all-around game Wednesday with 15 points, five rebounds and four assists.

JJ Redick turned in a big night for the Sixers, draining a team-best 28 points. During a recent segment of ESPN's First Take, Will Cain said he thinks McCollum is on to something when he suggested Philadelphia as James' landing spot this summer. After all, a 3-1 head-to-head advantage would be extremely tough to waste, especially considering the fact that the rest of the Cavs' schedule features two games against the Knicks.

To maintain the third seed, Cleveland will have to win out.

"We just played our game, didn't let the hype bother us and we stuck together".
