Here's the latest game preview, including point spread, points total, start time, TV channels, and how to watch the Cavs vs. Sixers live streaming online. The Cavaliers can also clinch their seventh Central Division title with a win and an Indiana Pacers loss (plays at Toronto tonight).

Had they emerged victorious, it would have been the greatest comeback this season - beating the 27-point deficit the Washington Wizards overcame against the New York Knicks on Feb 14. The Cavs well. they look like a team on the second night of a back to back after coming back from 16 down against the Wizards.

Serge Ibaka scored 25 points to lead the Raptors to a franchise-record 57th win of the regular season. Both have an all-around mastery of the game that allows them to record, or at least flirt, with triple-doubles on a nightly basis. Simmons, on the other hand, posted 27 points, 15 rebounds, 13 assists, four steals, and one block for the Sixers. He has averaged 9.3 points in 28 lifetime games versus Dallas, shooting 36.4 percent from 3-point range.

The Cavaliers and Sixers have split the season series and will have the all-so-important rubber match on Friday night in Philadelphia.

Even without All-Star center Joel Embiid, who suffered an orbital fracture and a concussion in his club's March 28 contest against NY, the 76ers have continued to play well in the second half of the season.

Of course, there's more to this Sixers squad than just Embiid.

So before the game, many Sixers fans said they were going to show LeBron some Brotherly Love. He shot 58 percent, including an impressive 4-8 from deep.


In their 12th straight victory, the Sixers topped the Detroit Pistons, 115-108, on the road. And they always kind of do it by committee, and it starts with Ben (Simmons) getting everybody involved. Reserve Marco Belinelli, tallied 19 points and four rebounds off the bench for his new squad. Luke Kornet came off the bench to add a career-best 17 points as NY left Miami just a half-game ahead of Milwaukee for sixth in the East.

Friday night's National Basketball Association action will include the ability to watch the Cavs vs. Sixers live streaming online and televised game coverage.

Tonight, the Wine & Gold will face the Philadelphia 76ers for the fourth time in 2017-18. A win takes them into third place.

Buoyed by a huge first quarter and rookie Malik Monk, Charlotte hammered host Orlando as Monk scored a career-high 26 points off the bench and reserve Frank Kaminsky poured in 21 points. Embiid tops in rebounds with 11.0 while Simmons tops in assists.

The Cavs are 11-1 against the Sixers over the previous 12 meetings and have won five consecutive contests at Wells Fargo Center.

"I think the best teacher in life is experience and every game he is experiencing more and learning the game", James said.

The Philadelphia 76ers are finally starting to see the process result in success.
