LeBron James reportedly to sit out Wednesday's game vs Raptors
Despite the Cavaliers' absolute thumping of the Celtics only a week ago, the race for the No. 1 seed in the Eastern Conference will go down to the final day of the season.
It could be make or break for the Cleveland Cavaliers when they play against the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday night later this week, as they need to win and for results to go their way if they are to have home-field advantage throughout the playoffs. Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot paced the Sixers with 24 points and Richaun Holmes had 17 points.
Although he fouled out in overtime, power forward James Johnson had 16 points and a team-high nine assists in 36 minutes.
His confidence is not without substance, as James has ran the Eastern Conference this decade, including six straight Finals. The Heat average 102.8 points per game on offense while giving up 101.9 on defense.

Nearly unthinkable a week ago, Boston's hiccups last week brought them back to the pack (albeit only slightly). Jones played in 15 postseason games last spring.
The sides are finalizing the deal and Jones is expected to be signed Wednesday, said the person who spoke on condition of anonymity because the team hasn't announced any deal.
