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.

PACERS 120 bt 76ERS 111 - Paul George scored 17 of his 27 points in the opening quarter as in inched closer to clinching a berth in the National Basketball Association playoffs.

The Bulls led by as many as 47 points in their largest margin of victory this season.

The win kept the Jazz tied for fourth seed in the West with the Clippers, who routed the Houston Rockets, 125-96.

Donald Trump Is Still Insisting Hillary Clinton Was The Corrupt One
Trump said it's "so obvious" what the Obama administration was doing, saying "nobody believes" Rice's actions were not political. Trump believes that Comey's decision is the reason Clinton was not formally prosecuted. "What they did is awful ".

Markieff Morris added 20 points for the Wizards, while Tobias Harris led the Pistons with 22.

The final two games come against Charlotte, a team Atlanta has yet to defeat in three opportunities this season, and in, a squad still looking to clinch a playoff berth. With this game in Miami, I expect the Heat to leave it all on the floor and grab the win. "We started out of the gate bad on defense, so I was just trying to huddle the guys up, telling them to stay focused, lock in on this end and everything will work out". "Credit to my teammates". 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.

The Palace was also the site of one of professional sports' most infamous brawls, the "Malice at the Palace" on November 19, 2004, when Ron Artest of the Indiana Pacers left the court to go after a fan in the stands, and teammates battled fans on the court.

Line: Heat -5. Estimated Total 210. "If we get to them early enough, we can hopefully keep them on the right track to a bigger and brighter future for themselves and their families".

The Cavs wasted a 26-point lead going into the fourth at Atlanta on Sunday, and an 11-pointer in the final 12 minutes of regulation of this one.
